“My baby girl turns one this week. She’s my rainbow baby and vibrant is the perfect word to describe our life with her in it, her bright personality and well, her cake smash. Love you baby Grace, happy birthday my girl xoxo”
I don’t do a lot of studio work anymore, but I will never stop doing cake smashes. I love putting a baby in front of a cake and watching to see what they do.
Grace wasn’t sure what the cake was, or what to do with it at first. I had to tear pieces off for her to try, and once she got a taste she knew it was good. She would eat a bit then crawl away, tracking cake and icing around my kitchen and down the hall. Then she would come back, taste some more and squeal with excitement.
Watching your child discover something new is one of the best parts of being a parent. This little monkey is growing up way too fast, so I’m trying hard to remember all the little things. Her first year was full of wonderful moments. She has already grown into her own personality. She’s stubborn and determined, silly and sweet. She loves her big sister, and daddy cuddles. She likes to climb and crawl everywhere, bounce on the bed and play in her sisters room. When she sees food coming, she vibrates. Her favourite song is Twinkle, Twinkle (sung by her sister). She sucks her thumb when she goes to sleep and needs one of her favourite blankies too. She copies everything we do. She loves her sleep and she often wakes up happy.
My girl, my baby, I can’t believe you are one year old already. Try to stay little just a bit longer, ok? Love you so much Baby Grace <3
