I thought I was messy in the kitchen...

And I am. Ask anyone who has worked with me. Or seen me. Or my kitchen. But Sally, well she takes it to another level. We made cookies the other day (decadent and rich, but not super bad for you cookies- no butter- no flour) and Sally was wearing them from head to toe-quite litterally. She LOVES helping out in the kitchen- especially if it's a baked good. Licking the spoon is always a bonus too.






Alice is just starting her food related messes- unless you count food that's been at least partially digested. We just started her on solids today. She couldn't get enough! When I was mixing it, I thought it was way too much. She polished it off in no time flat. At first, she would suck on the spoon- trying to get more of that tasy rice cereal to come out. Then, she would "help" direct the spoon into her mouth with her sweet hands. She loved everything about her first eating experience- and so did I!



Here she is trying to suck the last morsels off her hands

This video is the beginning of our feeding. I love that at first, she just wants to look at the camera. Sally Rose is getting over a sickness (fevers and throwing up were involved earlier this week) and has a nasty cough. I try to not let her cough on Alice, but to little avail. Alice got it, but not as bad, and is getting over it too. Bill, however is just starting it. I surely hope I'm not next. Anyway, here's our sweetie eating!

That'll be so fun when Chess is old enough to cook with me! I am a huge mess, as well. The kitchen gets dirty so fast b/c I'm always dropping stuff and getting crumbs everywhere. I love how Alice really leans forward to get to the spoon sooner! We really should hang out some time - that would be fun!

What a couple of fun little kitchen buddies! They are beautiful - even with batter all over their faces!

I want the recipe, whatever it is! Cooking with kids creates great memories. Way to go!

I keep meaning to make cookies with Abby, but then I don't have time to make anything, period. Oh well. I love Alice's smile!
