When my kids were very young, their first few birthdays were such fun to plan. Decorations, cake, ice cream and more - what theme? colors? characters would my son/daughter most enjoy?
I remember my son's first birthday ~ I had made a small cake for him to personally have then a larger cake with one of his favorite characters on it for the family to share. He looked at the yummy cake and sunk his fingers all the way in to grab a bite. Then, to everyone's delight and amazement - he began fussing and shaking his hands off to the side of the highchair! He didn't want that yucky stuff on his fingers! It was absolutely adorable and funny. His smashed up little cake was a yummy treat as long as he could figure out how to keep his fingers clean - :)
