Jackson & Kate – Twin Cake Smash

Mar 20, 2013

Omgomgomg. I picked 37 photos for a blog post that is a cake smash. That is way too many. But guys, seriously, I laughed so hard when I was editing these just now that you have to see them all. These two babes are my cousins! I’m sure there is a more official term like once removed or whatevs. I don’t get in to all that. It’s not important. They are my cousins babies making them more cousins. Right? Right. I have admittedly not met these two until Sunday. Yes, that means in the 14 months that they have been alive on this earth, I have successfully avoided driving less than 20 miles to go see them. I stink. I know. The good news is that I am not going to let that happen again because these babes are hysterical and every once and awhile I am going to need my dose of Kate and Jackson to get through life!! Yay!!!

I decided that these photos need some narration because that is what was going through my head while I was editing them. Feel free to not read another word and just check out these hysterical little ones.

“Uhhh, why are we sitting on white paper?” – Jackson. Not sure why but the line “I’m just a poor boy nobody loves me” also came to mind when seeing this photo. I can picture him singing it.

“Ooooooo, there’s fruit. I will stuff the whole thing straight in my mouth.” – Jackson

“Strawberries! That must all go in my mouth as well!!” -Jackson

“Jackson you can’t put the whole strawberry in your mouth.” -Mom

“But there is cake!” -Dad

“Little sweet but grrr you got me, Dad.” -Jackson

“Are you sure this is cake?” – Jackson

(Meanwhile, poor Kate is still chowing down on an orange.)

“By golly gee, it’s cake!! That’s a real knee slapper!” -Jackson

“You mean to tell me, I get to eat cake, and smash it, on white paper while listening to my favorite jam Gangnam Style???” – Jackson

“Ehhhhhh, Sexy Lady!” -Jackson

“Cake for you, cake for me.” -Jackson

“Dinner and a show! Sweet!” – Jackson

“Jackson, what the hell are they doing?” – Kate

“I dunno, but it is scary and I’m not happy about it.” -Jackson


“Maybe we should just smile for them like we liked their dancing and thought it was funny.” – Jackson

“Stop! I think this is a trick to get us to nap!” -Jackson

“Whose the smart one now, Dad??” – Jackson

“Ahh, why didn’t I think of this sooner!!!!???” -Jackson

“I.WILL.NOT.NAP!” – Jackson

“We’re onto your trickery, ‘rents.No nap for us!!” -Jackson, (Kate evil laughs)

    HAHAHAHA I love you. This could have just been a post of nothing but pictures (and a lot of them, like you said) and a quick scroll through but no… you added in Jackson’s internal commentary and holy crap this was so adorable. LOVE!! This was seriously amazing.

    Dani- you totally captured our little monkeys. Scrolling down, Brian and I were smiling from ear to ear and laughing; I’d say, “Oh wow, this is my favorite. No wait, this is” and it went like this over and over because you’re such an awesome photographer! Love you & thank you so much <3
