So I’ve decided to take a new approach to our little website here, in the past I have only posted when I had pictures to share. Doing it this way I don’t write very often. After reading over yesterday’s post I realized how lucky I am to be home and how reading about how much fun we have can really help me get through the not so fun days. You know the ones with runny noses, no sleep or just the ones that seem to never end. I figure if I can do this it would be great way to share what the girls are up to, and since we all know I’m not very good at the whole baby book thing at least it will give us some sort of a record.
Today, we decided to tackle baking again. We haven’t done it in awhile and most of the time we’ve done it is the out of the box kind. So we decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies this is a whole different experience with a two year old. Maggie loved it though and after getting over the fact that we were going to make a mess we both had fun. I don’t know why I cared about the mess its not like my kitchen is clean to begin with. The tricky part came when we had to put them in the oven, actually getting them out. We have a couple of dark batches but no burnt cookies. YEAH!! Watching Maggie dip them in her milk and devour them was great, she was proud that they were HER cookies she was eating.
Layla had to watch us and she was not happy about that, she made sure we knew she was there the whole time and then when it came to eating them she sat in her high chair licking her lips and saying “mmmmmm.” She is making new sounds everyday we’ve got mama and dada a few times. Her favorite is “Yeah” when she claps hands and her newest is “Bye” with an attempt at a wave each time. She is moving all over the place now, she has not figured out the crawling thing yet but that doesn’t slow her down. I’m sure it won’t be long and then there will be no stopping her.
Hey! It looks like you changed your blog around. Looks good! Glad you are writing even when you don’t have pictures to post. I love to cook with my older daughter. Things may not come out looking very pretty, but they always taste better than usual!
I love hearing what you guys are up to! It is really nice since we aren’t there with you! When I’m there in February I’ll have to work on Layla saying Rae Rae, lol! I hope the girls are having a ton of fun each and every day! I miss you guys so much! Sqweezies weezies to all
