Baking Cookies

Lena is Mama's little helper in the kitchen. And together, we baked chocolate chip cookies to share with our friends. It was fun!

"Wanna make cookies?"
"OK! That's a good idea!"

Mmmm. How do they taste?

Hey mom, you forgot the salt!

Actually, funny enough, Lena wouldn't even try the cookies. Later, when we made paper chains out of wrapping paper remnants, she did eat the glue. So, there you go...

Making Guacamole

Tonight, Lena helped make our guacamole for dinner. She added the chopped tomatoes and onions (Papa helped chop) and mixed it all together. Fun!

Is it just me or does this look like a toddler dinner made in heaven? Mexican pinwheels (sliced bean and cheese burrito) with rice and cheese (both favorites, usually.) Lena took one look and refused to come to the table by laying down screaming on the floor. And I thought I was a picky eater!

Small town happenstance in the big city

Today, Lena and Ms Liz went down to Bookpeople for storytime. And who does little Lena run into, but her friend Rae, who also just happen to be going to storytime with her mom. Hooray for storytime! And hooray for Mrs. Bagnall being out for the summer and for keeping this still-working mom in the loop on the hottest toddler hangouts in Austin.
