So my sweet baby girl had her first birthday party at our Oktoberfest party. I made her a cake from a cake mix, not even from scratch, as of the start of the party I had not even decorated it. Thanks to a dear friend the cake did get iced and decorated with "Happy Birthday Ainsley". My friend did a lovely job and this is no slight to her but I just want to show how much of a slacker mom I was for her birthday. This is a picture of my firstborns first birthday cake.
and this is the second child's birthday cake.
it appears that I didn't even take a picture of just the cake!
Fortunately for my children there are no plans to have a 3rd or 4th. The poor 4th child would probably only get a cracker for their 1st birthday.
But since my daughter is just one year old she doesn't know the difference and will probably never know until she is old enough to read this blog. Ainsley's personality has been so different from Wythe's that I thought she would be the child to dive into her cake, that is not exactly what happened.
cake/present table (in theme with the blue & white for Oktoberfest)
at first things are ok...
...still kind of enjoying the attention...
a little bit embarrassed as we sing "happy birthday" to her...
blowing out the candles...
managed to kick the cake with her foot but doesn't want to touch it
Wythe is wondering "what we are waiting for?? just serve the cake already!"
"this is not fun mommy!"
Wythe - finally happy, eating a piece of cake
"hmmm...I would like some more, surely no one will notice if I just help myself..."
"couldn't really cut a piece for myself but this will work..."
'til next time...
