    1. That particular cake was all her own. :-) Originally I was only going to give her a cupcake, but since we got her main cake from the bakery, and they give you an extra cake for first birthdays, we went that route. It was a bit much maybe--but it was free and she had fun, as you can see.

    1. Me too! I told my husband I wanted to have a smash cake for my birthday. Of course, I'd probably be a glutton and eat it all. LOL

    1. She wasn't too sure what she was supposed to do at first but once she got started there was no stopping her. :-) She was quite tuckered out at the end of the day.

    1. She made quite the mess! LOL We set down an extra plastic table cloth under her highchair for the occasion so it wasn't as bad as it could've been. I was surprised her clothes didn't get more messed up--I'd even put her in a different top so she wouldn't ruin her birthday outfit.

    1. She's growing up so fast! Dad and Grandma did most of the cleaning up, so it wasn't too bad on my end. LOL

  8. These are priceless! Some of my favorite pictures of my kiddos are from their 1st birthday and 1st taste of cake :) Each one attacked the cake differently which makes it fun to reminisce on.

    1. Samantha - I can't tell you how many pictures I took of the day, but I know it was a lot. Mouse was very hesitant at first. I expected more of a mess, but she did a pretty good job just the same. :-)

  9. There is SO much to love in these pictures! Mouse looks like such a spunky little baby--I'm sure that she and the chickpea would get along famously. :) Happy birthday to her--her outfit is ADORABLE but I think my favorite is the last picture where she's crashed. Those moments just tug at my heartstrings.

  14. Oh, I love those photos! I don't think I'd ever dare let my kid have at a whole cake- is that a sugar crash? what fun.

    1. Jeane - She didn't actually eat much of the cake and I'm sure all the events of the day combined wore her out just in time for her to take a nap. She was up and running again when she woke up. She had presents to open after all . . . Although I think I opened more of them for her since she was all over the place. LOL

  15. Both of my kids had little cakes when they did their version of smash cake. Oh my! Hers was huge!! What fun! You got some great pics! Did she enjoy eating it? I am guessing at least a little bit made it into her mouth. My son wore most of his but my daughter ate every speck!

    1. Ti - I didn't expect it to be quite that big to be honest. All I knew when I ordered it was that it came free with the big cake. I think she ate more frosting than she did actual cake. So glad I did the whipped topping instead of the buttercream. LOL

  16. LOL! My husband would never let that mess take place here.
    I have to do messy things when he's not home :)
    She is absolutely adorable.
