As a couple of interesting afterthoughts: Tabitha finally did get some cake. She was just smart enough to wait until everyone else left and she then slowly, daintily, ate to her hearts content. The adults were all standing in the kitchen laughing about Edie's behavior and wondering where she learned to eat cake with such passion. It was just then that we turned back to the table and got the answer to our question.... . .

Last night we had a one-year-old birthday party for Edie and her two friends, Tabitha and Seth. Karen made a beautiful 3 layer chocolate cake for the birthday kids and we put them on the table to let them eat. All three were hesitant at first to touch the cake. Seth was even a bit scared (perhaps less of the cake than of the crowd who was chanting "go, go, go"). Finally the babies started exploring the cake. Well, at least two of them anyway. Seth was very proper and with a spoon started digging out chocolate chunks. Tabitha sat and watched curiously. Edie picked the chocolate chips off the top and then, without further ado, opened her mouth and took a big bite out of the top of the cake. . .
