This Baby Had a BBQ Themed Birthday Party, and We're Totally Jealous

One adorable baby is going viral for her uncontrollable love of barbecue.

Many parents like to take photos of a "cake smash" during their children's birthdays, where kids stuff happily their face with dessert. An Iowa photographer decided to take a different spin on the tradition for a little girl named Layla on her 1st birthday.

When little Layla's mother told Lyndsey Wright of Lyndsey's PhotoCo that her daughter's favorite food was BBQ, it all fell into place.

Instead of giving the baby girl a cake to smash, they let her go wild with some BBQ meat. Clad in a white T-shirt and big red headband, Layla happily sucked on the ribs, her fingers and even the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce bottle. And can you blame her?

The photos of baby Layla have garnered nearly 20,000 shares, 18,000 reactions and 4,000 comments so far. The photographer is now doing more creative "cake smashes," including one where the cake was replaced with tacos. There's also a donut smash, watermelon smash and an ice cream smash.
