Jackson - Smash the Cake Session

Boy, am I excited for today's post.  My little nephew Jackson's first birthday is this week.  Where has this year gone?  I remember walking into that hospital room and seeing his little face for the first time.  He was so small...Now, he's the handsome dimpled-cheeks, curly-hair, perfect-dance-moves one year old boy. We celebrated by doing a little smash the cake session. It is always so unpredictable how babies will react to getting all messy and eating cake with their hands.  It probably confuses them so much that for this ONE time in their life, parents are wanting them to be messy!  But it was no big deal for Jackson.  He dug right into his delicious cake and was eating it by the hand full.

Happy Birthday Jackson!  We love you so much!

So Jackson paid Charlie back for bringing down his banners with a little revenge of his own...

As you can see, Jackson got a kick out of it and Charlie absolutely did not want to get cake on his shirt!
