Not only was this her first sweet ever, it was the first time she'd been given a fork. Kristin gave her the fork because she was reluctant to touch the cake.
But she did get over her hesitation. This shot is Elli looking at her lap full of cake.
Elli's skills include opening packages with her teeth!
She did such a good job that Zach tried it, too.
Elli is one. Zach is seventeen. It was a double birthday.
Zach loves his gift - and Erin cracks up.
