And finally, some cake pics. Thanks for taking these, Mike!
Staying in character, Sydney had no desire to dive in to her special banana bread cake. She daintily poked at the frosting and was totally satisfied with that.

Aunt Steph and I tried to coax her to take bigger bites, but soon she was giving us the sign language for “all done.” That’s my little bird!

I think this expression is so adorably pitiful. Poor baby has an entire delicious cake to eat! I think the attention was just too much to handle.
