Charlie's Cake Smash

 Charlie came back to the studio to celebrate his first birthday with a cake!  We had to get some fall photos before things got messy.  For some reason, Charlie did not want to touch the sunflowers, so we moved on to the crate.  He's grown so much and didn't really like being in the crate.  In general, he just seemed to be a bit unsure about me and this whole thing we were doing.  I changed the arrangement so he could sit on top of the crate, but he quickly moved down to the blanket.  I don't know what it was about that blanket, but he lit up as soon as he touched it.  Then he grabbed it and started playing peekaboo behind it.  It was precious!  But that wasn't the main event, so we cleared the area, set it up with our Winnie the Pooh theme, and brought out the most adorable cake which was made by Dulces Pasteles (Sweet Cakes) by Mamash.  Charlie quickly grabbed icing and began spreading it everywhere.  He made quite a mess in just a few short minutes as he was clearly having the time of his life.  We convinced him to stop playing long enough to taste the icing.  His face once again lit up as he realized it was yummy food!  He's such a sweet little guy!  💗
