Cookies!!!




Today I decided to prepare some cookie dough for Ashley's shower. As I measured everything (twice), and sifted, and blended, and grated, and mixed, my beautiful baby sat in her high chair very quietly. She was so good and watched me as I prepared the long recipe (all 7 dozen of it!). Before the last step (chocolate chips, walnuts etc), I let her try to mix it up with the spatula. At first she was a bit apprehensive, then she took some cookie dough form the rim of the bowl, and it was all over from there. She wanted to eat the whole bowl (and probably would have if i let her), but since it contains raw egg, i thought it best to keep it at just a taste. Oh my lovely girl!

That is Hilarious. We haven't let Jaxson go crazy with cookie dough yet, but that's a good idea.

Cute AND smart. I don't like making cookies because it takes such a long time when all I want is the dough and then one or two warm cookies. But when I do it's totally worth it. See you tomorrow.
