The Birthday Cake


And he's off. He crawled so fast, right off the turquoise, that I had a few chocolate hand prints to clean off the carpet. It's safe to say the crying didn't last but 2 seconds, Roman loved that cake. And he didn't mind being dirty. More he kept looking at me like, "Really, you're going to let me do this? You're not going to stop me?" Adorable. The "backdrop" is actually a piece of vinyl that I found on a clearance fabric table. I bought it back in September to use as a tablecloth for Lily's party. It's perfect because it is heavy and doesn't require ironing and it wipes right down so there is no laundry! I've used it as a table cloth for two parties and now a photoshoot. ha! So very multipurpose. Up next...the Birthday Party. Whew.

Tara, these pictures are AMAZING. I LOVE them. That little Roman is the cutest. And him eating that cake on the backdrop with the cake stand makes it seem like he is on a Martha Stewart ad. Love it. Can't wait for the party now! Show pictures SOON.
