What a day!
We were at my sister’s house to celebrate my dad’s birthday yesterday.
Cake and dessert time was accompanied by much entertainment by Audrey, my adorable 10 month old niece.
She is the first for my sister and brother-in-law and we all know what that means…no feeding her sweets, especially before her 1st birthday, when she will be lucky to get a smash cake.
Despite my sister’s pleas, mom fed Audrey tiny bits from the ice cream cake. Needless to say, she LOVED it, so much that she was anxiously grabbing the fork and putting it in her mouth herself.
The real comedy came as we have her sitting on the table and she goes for the cream puffs. Initially she thought they were balls and threw them across the table. Because we are a group of mature adults, we thought that was hilarious. She then accidently discovered that they really belonged in her mouth. But, before that, they found there way on her finger and thumb. In no time, she had one in each hand and was alternating from which one she took bites.
We were all in hysterics. She would also smile and laugh from time to time, like she knew she was getting away with something. It was such a wonderful, happy time for us. Laughing as a group, as a family, celebrating the good in life!
You bring such joy to our lives!
We love you to pieces, Audrey Elizabeth!
