Xavier's 1st Birthday

Boy meets cake.
Boy touches cake.
Boy tastes cake.
Boy wears cake.

That pretty much sums up little Xavier's experience with his very first 'cake smash'. When all was said and done it was off to the shower. Nothing but a good hosing down would help his icing and cake adorned little body.

The sketch is from Stuck?! and designed by Laura Whitaker. I thought it perfect for telling the progression of the boy meets cake story, sort of a top to bottom pictorial.
I am so fortunate to have a wonderful friend who, just this week, gifted me with hundreds of buttons. She wanted them to go to someone she thought might use them. I can't wait to show her how a sampling of her buttons became a bouquet of birthday balloons.
