We asked Grandma Kay Ellen to present Lila with her birthday cupcake, since Lila is named for her Grandma (Lila Kay). Lila was very intrigued with the dessert (carrot cake) and only made one funny face while she was eating. She has always been an adventurous eater, and she didn't disappoint this time either! I was a little surprised that she didn't eat more -- I think she ate a quarter of it. After a while, she started holding the cupcake against her chest, as if she were trying to keep it hidden, hehe.
Lila had a LOT of help opening her presents. There were three very active boys at the party (John and his two buddies Jacob, 4, and Connor, 2), and since we were trying to keep them entertained, we thought it would be a good idea for them to start the process for her while she was finishing up her cupcake. Needless to say, it got a little out of hand. But at least the gifts were ready for her to play with by the time she got out of her highchair! She loved them all. Thank you, everyone!
