Little coconut birthday cake frosted with straight sour cream.  Sour cream is Elowen's favorite food, and she doesn't really like sweet things.

As soon as she (finally) got her new blankie opened up, she laid her head down on it.  Sweet.

And just to prove that she really is a big girl now, she pulled up on the dryer!
