We celebrated Freya's first birthday a day early because I have to leave tomorrow morning for a trip. The first-year tradition is for the baby to have first dips on the cake. It's time for chocolate and a mess. At first, Freya did not know what to do. Maybe she was concerned we didn't want her to mess with it, but after she took a couple dainty jabs at the cake, she got in the spirit of things and dug in. Freya loves her new doll, which she can take into the tub with her.
