Happy New Year all!  Rather than doing a 2012 Year In Review post for you, I have something better, photos from Austin’s 1st birthday cake smash!  I suppose the title of this post might be giving it away, but let’s just say in a battle of Austin vs. Cake… the Cake wins.

Mommy and Daddy: Hey Austin! Look, we got you a cake for your birthday! Feel free to eat as much as you want!

Austin: Huh?  What?  What is this?

Austin: Mmmm oh, that tastes OK.  Although I think I like puffs better.

Austin: Ummm, are we done yet?

Mommy and Daddy are baffled as to why Austin won’t dig into and eat the cake.  So they force him to step on the cake and try to force feed him the cake…

Austin: OK, this is no fun.  I’m outta here.

And there you have it, the most unsuccessful cake smash ever to go down in history.  I guess it’s a good thing that our little guy isn’t too big of a sweets eater.

    Awww. That’s too cute! A close friend of mine’s daughter recently turned one and was pretty uninterested in the cake also!

    Too cute. My daughter did this. She would only touch it with one finger. And cried when we tried to force it.

    Kennedy had a very similar reaction to her smash cake (she also cried when it got all over her fingers)! Too funny!!!!

    I love your little storyboard of Austin’s cake smash. It gave me a good giggle today. So different than seeing photos of kids getting really into it.

    So hard to believe that your little one is already one.

    Happy new year Sandy! May 2013 bring you more happiness and success.

    Awww haha poor guy. My niece was the exact same way with her first birthday cake, she didn’t know what to do with it. I’m sure by his 2nd, he’ll get a hang of it.

    Awwww! That very last shot is SO gorgeous! My maternity photographer does these…so great. He’s such a cutie. Does he like older women? Cuz I may have one for him.

    Lol~ these shots are awesome~ really!! I love how gingerly he was approaching the cake. Reminds me of when I tried to get him to touch the dinosaur toys and he was so careful about it. Makes me miss him so much~ he’s such a sweetie!
