Birthday Cake!

For Kirsten's first birthday, I was full of anticipation that she would gleefully stuff her cake in her mouth and get all messy with frosting. . .
So I made a cake and my mom wrote the words on it. The can of red icing gave us a lot of trouble!
Much to my dismay (and I'm sure the disappointment of everyone else reading this who wanted to see messy birthday pictures), Kirsten just poked daintily at her cake and acted like she really didn't know what to do with it.
I knew she wouldn't eat much of it, since she still eats hardly any adult foods, but I thought she might at least smear the icing all over her face or something.
But she didn't. When she seemed overwhelmed by the whole cake we cut a piece out and gave it to her. She got her fingers in the icing a little and licked it off her fingers, but this picture shows pretty much the extent of how messy she got. Not much at all!
Maybe my next baby will be willing to stuff cake in its face and get a sugar high. Kirsten sure didn't! But we had a fun birthday anyway and she thought it was great when we sang "Happy Birthday" to her.
