The Wades celebrated their “Shady Baby’s” second birthday on Nov. 2 by hiring a face painter to transform Kaavia into an adorable little tiger, but, by the looks of it, baby girl wasn’t moved by the artist’s work. As her little friend appeared to look on in encouragement, the birthday girl stared into the mirror with an expression that clearly reads, “This ain’t what I asked for.”
Union, who is no stranger to her daughter’s facial shenanigans, made fun of her perturbed look in her caption. “When the finished look doesn’t match the reference photo. 🤣🤣🤣🤣 🤣🤣 @kaaviajames @crosby_sparrow face though 💀💀
#ShadyBabyTurns2 ♥️👶🏾,” she wrote.
The “Being Mary Jane” actress shared a heartfelt message on Kaavia’s birthday summing up her daughter’s vibrant personality, along with a sweet video of the youngest Wade growing up right before our eyes.
