Let Him Eat Cake!

Jacob brought his birthday cake home from his office last week. It took Oliver about 3 minutes to notice it the next morning. It had a plastic covering over it and as soon as he did notice it, he panted until I let him touch it, on the counter. Then, I thought, "this might be kind of fun, let's put it on the ground, with the cover." He studied that thing, poked and prodded it for about 20 minutes, not moving from his spot. Then, I thought again, "this could REALLY be fun, let's see what happens when I take the cover off." Now, if you will refer to his b-day post from August last year, you'll see that we practically had to force-feed him his cake, so I wasn't expecting much action. I was wrong. Well, actually, at first, he just gingerly reached down and got a little touch of icing on his finger and stuck it in his mouth. Then, every bite following was a little bigger until he got a handful of cake and icing in his mouth. That's when I decided the show was over. I grabbed the cake and put it in the trash. And he screamed for 10 minutes, banging on the garage door where we keep the garbage. It was good times while it lasted, though. Right, Ollie??

Those pictures are hilarious...he definitely does look like a careful eater. You should have put him outside with it and then hosed him, and the lawn off afterwards. He would have enjoyed himself for hours!!

Reba- those pics aren't even messy. I was thinking it was gonna be all over his face, your floor, etc. I think you could've gone a little longer. :) He's so cute.
