Now Let's Eat Some Cake! - Baby's First Birthday

This post is part of a series of posts I am writing titled Diary of a Baby chronicling the candid confessions of a baby from 0 to 2 years old.

Age: 1 year old


Oh Diary,


What a day it’s been! I mean every day is special and all, but today was something else! Apparently it’s my first birthday today which means I have spent exactly 1 year outside the cocoonSo these adults have been pampering me all day (even more than they usually do) and singing Happy Birthday.


Firstly Papa didn’t go to work even though it’s not a holiday. Mamma and Papa took me out to play in this huge play area with slides, cars, a ball pool, gazillions of toys and even a train. In the evening Mamma decorated the whole house and then all my favourite people – grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins – came by to celebrate this big day with me and shower me with presents. Oh what fun to be one!

Today is all about ME!

Today is all about ME!


Diary, remember when I turned 6 months old and got to cut a cake but they wouldn’t let me eat it? Well this time I got to cut the cake and eat it too! Man that thing is heaven on a plate. The day I can start talking, the first thing I’m going to ask is why all this is being kept from me for so long! What sadistic pleasures these adults derive! 


And the funny thing is, they weren’t even upset that I got some on my face and clothes. In fact they seemed to encourage it! I just don’t get these adults sometimes! Just the other day I was happily going about my business smashing some bananas and rubbing it all over my face and Papa went completely red in the face. I guess all is forgiven when it’s your birthday. I wish it was my birthday everyday.
