Photo essay: Auletta's first chocolate cake

We're in Ithaca, celebrating Auletta's first birthday with Justin's family. Her birthday is tomorrow, but her party was today for various scheduling reasons, and so I could say I had more fun tonight than I was having the night of October 9, 2007. Justin's mom continued the family tradition of baking a teddy bear cake for each baby's first birthday (this is the ninth one she's done). Somehow I have avoided giving Auletta chocolate until her first birthday. So this is her very first experience of chocolate. The photos are in chronological order, so you can see how she delicately dipped her fingers into the frosting before finally diving in.

Oh my goodness! How did she hit 1 already? She's looking so big and I love all the curls (just like her momma, as I remember...)

Happy Birthday Auletta!!!
