We Cook! (and Thankfulness)
It rained yesterday, which I really don't mind, but Andrew was a little sad that it meant we couldn't go outside to play.
So we got to "cook" instead.
He loves all my kitchen utensils. When I let him play with them he runs in to the den, dumps them all out and says "cooking!". Warning: always rinse off the spatula before using with real food.
Do you think this poor kid needs a haircut or what? I wanted to take him last week, but my mom and Brian encouraged me to wait just a little longer. And then yesterday he got rained on and looked like this for the rest of the afternoon.
He really reminded me of a picture I've seen of my dad from the 70's. I think as a teenager he had Andrew's same haircut.
Last week I took newborn photos of my new nephew Reid. I'm planning to share a few with you guys later this week. It's taking me longer to edit them than I thought it would. I think the hardest part has been trying to pick my favorite thirty photos or so.
How do the professionals do it? Maybe it helps to not be totally in love with your subject. :)
And finally, I've seen lots of bloggers commit to writing every day in November about something they're thankful for in honor of Thanksgiving. Well, I know better than to commit to writing every day, but I do think I'll add something I'm thankful for to every post in November.
So today I'm thankful for:
(These seems a little obvious, but are so true.)
1. Brian: He's a terrific dad, a wonderful provider, he makes me laugh every day and he loves me like crazy.
2. Andrew: He keeps me on my toes, fills our home with joy and makes me want to be the very best mom I can be.
Let me know if you're doing thankfulness posts in November. I'd love to visit!
