After forcing food on Elvie for at Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’d decided that we wouldn’t bother her further with another meal, even if it was for a special occasion. However, since she started eating solid food a week ago, I figured offering a birthday cupcake would be a good idea. After all, she’ll only turn one this one time. Even though her party isn’t until later, we wanted to make her big day special. We chose some cupcakes and set one in front of her after dinner. Here’s what happened.
Will She Eat It?
Who can say? Will she like it? Hard to tell.
Picking It Up
Seems okay so far.
She’s about to lick it.
She Licked It
Hmmm…she’s not sure yet.
That Wasn’t Quite Enough Frosting
She’ll shove some more in.
That Was Good!
She’ll have another handful.
What Should She Do Now?
The frosting was good; is there anything else?
Okay, She’ll Taste the Cake
She’s not that impressed.
Back to the Frosting, in a Big Way
How about a giant handful? That will probably be best.
WHOA! That’s sweet!
Sugar overload is powerful.
Maybe a Smaller Bite This Time
She wants more, but she won’t overdo it again.
Uh-oh! Big Mess!
That’s what happens when you eat frosting by the handful.
Might As Well Make It Messier
Making messes is what one-year-olds do best!
She’s Not Sure What to Do Now
She’s full, and she’s made a big mess already. What else is there to do?
She’ll Just Show Her Family She’s Done
Dropping food on the floor is the best way to indicate that she’s finished, right?
With that out of the way, what’s next? She hopes it’s presents.
