My mother-in-law and niece collaborated on a small birthday cake for James during the 4th of July picnic (his actual birthday party will be a little later this month). It was very cute -- white and blue icing with sugar candy bugs dancing along the sides.
James looked a little confused at the cake and candle sitting before him while everyone sang, but the confusion ended once a slice was placed in front of him. He picked up a little piece with his fingers and tasted it. One small taste was all he needed because he dove right into it.
And when we all laughed he did it a second, a third and even a fourth time.
It was one of those classic, classic first moments.
When he has his actual party later this month, I'm hoping for a replay and this time we'll be ready with the video camera.
