…I’m talking about frosting! I think it looks perfect on him :) Blogging these pictures makes me totally hungry for a cupcake (or two). There are few things in life that come close to the cuteness that results from letting a baby eat a cupcake all by himself…especially when that baby is chubby, adorable and super charming like this baby boy. The first is my absolute favorite. He’s focused, and shoves the entire thing in his mouth without hesitation – impressive! ¬†Although he did flash his sweet smile several times during our time together, those smiles weren’t nearly as huge as they were when he had a cupcake in hand :) I adore these cupcake shots! But of course, we did take some pictures of him when he wasn’t wearing frosting – and he was equally cute in those too. But overall, I’d have to say I love the cupcake ones most – he wears that frosting well, doesn’t he?!

  • Betty Reminds me of two "chunks" I spent a lot of time with 32 years ago! Wonderful pictures! Specially the bucket shot.(07.07.2011 10:25pm)
  • Mike Spellman Judging from the shot on the table, it's obvious that Carter will follow in Jackson Pollock's footsteps as an avant garde artist. What a flair for innovative media and materials he has. Intestingly, although all the shots are great, the one my eye returns to the most is the b&w of the three of you. Very striking. Happy birthday, Carter. You're a star.(07.08.2011 07:35am)
