PORTLAND, Oregon – Ann Turner Cook, the original Gerber Baby, celebrated her 91st birthday on Nov. 20.

The Gerber brand posted a photo of Cook, a sketch of her as an infant and a picture of her birthday cake to Facebook on Monday.

The charcoal sketch of Cook, drawn when she was 5-months-old, has been the trademark of Gerber Baby Food since 1928, according to Cook's website.

Cook went on to establish a 26-year career teaching literature and writing to high school students and later authored novels.
