As part of the typical first birthday party rituals, Parker got his own mini cake to eat all by himself. For fun’s sake the hope is that the kid will DESTROY the cake and make a huge mess. So far none of my kids have done that. Maybe it surprises them to get such a big brick of food to eat. Or maybe the surprise is that they just haven’t seen anything like that. Or maybe it is because 20 people are watching them.
I’ve taken video each time. In fact you can see Noah’s video here, if you want to compare. Like that time with Noah, watching Parker eat his cake in real time is just barely more interesting than watching paint dry. However, speeding up the video and adding some fast-paced music does wonders for the entertainment factor. Enjoy.
