I love watching my newborns grow. I got to hang out quite a bit with Quin as she grew up. Her mom and I worked together in church callings. She would sit on my lap during church and smother me with her graham cracker hands! Even though I’ve watched her grow up, it seems like it all happened in a blink of an eye. How did she turn 1 already?
As I searched her newborn pictures, something stood out to me. She had the same big smile as a newborn that she had at her cake smash session!
When Quin first arrived with her mom, she didn’t know what to think about me! This little sweetheart really likes her mama! Never fear, I have many tricks up my sleeve and soon Quin was smiling and playing peek-a-boo for the camera!
When the time came for the cake to make its appearance Quin forgot all about being nervous. What girl wouldn’t when presented with cake! It would be a mild understatement to say that this birthday girl really likes her baked goods. So laughter ensued from behind the camera as we watched the cake turn into crumbs!
Little fun fact: All those pictures of messy cake smashes where the kids look like they have eaten so much cake. Did you know that only about 10% of babies actually eat the cake? The rest of the mess is done when mom helps baby out by smearing frosting on bellies or pushing hands into the cake. Yup! So don’t get discouraged if your baby has no interest in that cake! We’ll make it look like they loved it!!
