CIMG1985 E eats cake 002_0001D
For E's first birthday we fed her a cupcake with frosting, and for that we took her out to the park, where she could make all kinds of mess without ruining furniture or carpet. She did a decent job of mutilating the cupcake, but did not go all out like she does with some other, less festive foods at home. The frosting did not even end up in her hair. She's been known to be more creative with other foods. For example, when being fed cereal or mashed potatoes, she sticks her entire hand into the dish, then holds it up to her eyes, examines the gobs of mush carefully, and flexes her fingers to make a "squelch, squelch" sound. The cupcake did not deserve that honor, apparently.
