What is a birthday without some cake?!

I know my posts are jumping all over the place, and I apologize. Anyways, I realized that I didn't post any of the babies' cute pictures from their birthday of diving into their cake. It was so interesting to have two babies participate in the traditional act and have two totally different ways of going at the process.

We sang to Emmy first since she was baby A and therefore the oldest by two minutes. She tried to grab the candle while it was lit. When she started to investigate the cake she took her pointer finger and was using it to explore the wondrous curious object before her. After exploring the cake by touching and squishing it for a little while and and after taking a little lick of the frosting off her little slender finger, she decided that it was time to quite being lady like and go all out (in regards to the cake). After awhile, she noticed Ben playing with the plate and decided that she too would dump her remaining cake on the floor and on her high chair tray.

Ben too was very fascinated with the candle. But unlike his sister, he was more fascinated with the plate the cake was on then the actual cake. Ben explored the plate first by dumping the cake on his high chair tray and on the floor. Followed by banging the plate covered in cake against his tray. It was only after he finished exploring the plate that he decided it was the cake's turn to have his attention. He explored it tentatively at first and like his sister after awhile went full force to destroy the cake.

Although it ended up being a complete mess, I think Ben and Emmy completely enjoyed themselves. We didn't open up the babies' birthday presents until the next day since they were so tired after exploring their cake.We also took a video of them exploring their cake and hopefully I will be able to add that at a future date.

Below are pictures of the babies at their little birthday party we had, and of them opening their presents the day after.
