Have you ever seen a happier baby!?!
Remember when I did her six month session this summer? Still just as happy!!
But I have to be honest. Hadley is an amazing eater. But cake? Um. No way! Would not touch it! Now this is the one year old that will eat steak and bang her tray for more. Basically anything you put in front of her is gone. But we put this beautiful cake down in front of her and she couldn’t crawl away fast enough.
So her mom tried to stick some in her mouth. This sweet happy baby started gagging! Not even kidding. Her eyes were watering. It was awful. I knew we had already gotten the photos of her looking so adorable playing with the garland…
But I don’t give up that easily.
So I’m sitting there trying to think it through. Letting her have a little time to snuggle with Mama. And then I remembered…
So I grabbed a box of her favorite Multi Grain Cheerios from the kitchen and stuck a few in the cake. It got her attention. She was still a little leery, but she was curios. Then she noticed I had the big bag and she headed back to me.
Ok. Round two.
We went all in. I just started throwing Cheerios everywhere. I put them all over the cake. All over the floor. Everywhere.
Well. Then it was game on!! It was eat the Cheerios, knock over the cake, have a blast, Cake Smash time!
And oh what fun we had….
Did you know that I now have an indoor home studio here in Charlotte? I am now booking newborn, milestone and cake smash sessions for February through April. Mention CHEERIOS in your contact form or email by January 31, 2019 and receive a $50 print credit with your milestone or cake smash session! Let’s have some fun!
Thanks to the Clovis Savemart for the gorgeous white cake! And how amazing did Mama do collecting all of these darling details off of Etsy!?! The #1Birthday Candle from Sprinkles and Beans. The darling sparkly butt bloomers from My2LilPixies and the tiny red glitter #1 hat from Little Blue Olive! (I’m definitely going to need some of those bloomers and hats for the studio!)
