One is such an adorable age — unless you are a piece of cake. Then it is terrifying.
In honor of the one-year anniversary of our TODAY Parenting Team community, we asked team members to send along photos revealing “what 1 looks like.”
Dozens of dazzlingly cute submissions came pouring in, and many — MANY! — of them involved cake. Or what used to be cake. More like cake that had a run-in with TNT or Godzilla. See?!

Parents sent in so many wonderful photos that we’ve decided to share them in separate installments. Stay tuned for upcoming compilations of 1-year-olds:
- getting really dirty or making huge messes;
- getting squeaky clean at bathtime;
- falling asleep in awkward places or positions;
- climbing, falling or getting themselves into other dicey physical predicaments;
- acting like grown-ups;
- making AWESOME faces.
But for now … let them eat cake!
Every baby deserves to make a mess on their birthday.
