Alissa's Birthday Cupcake Smash !!

10-03-12

What you see above is the aftermath…

Last week, I posted some photos documenting the progression of our daughter’s first year. Last weekend we celebrated her 1st birthday party with a few of her buddies, and then brought the festivities to a close with the obligatory 1yr old cupcake smash. We’ve painfully learned that kids love to make a mess when they eat despite everything we do to try and keep them relatively clean (their clothes, their eating area, etc). When she get’s a free pass to be as messy as she wants with a cupcake just for her, I think it’s worth capturing 🙂

First, you start with a clean baby totally oblivious to the fun she’s about have…

Then, the first touch & taste…

Two-fisting it !

Then it hits her…Wait, this is kinda fun

Then the revelation…”OMG, I am having the freakin’ time of my life !!!”

And the hand clap…where I actually caught the bits and pieces of cupcake flying from her hands

And finally…the hair rub.

And there you have it. Year 1 is complete with a memorable finale. I can honestly say, I had just as much fun shooting this as Alissa did smashing! I can only imagine what we have to look forward to in Year 2.

    What can I say? She must have had the time of her life without knowing it. So-o-o-o adorable!
