He wasn't very interested in watching the cookies bake.
But he loved the cookies scoop.
As soon as the first batch were out my little taste tester was ready to go.
He didn't tell me but I think he liked them as this was his face...
four cookies later.

I have never been much of a girly girl. Never been fond of dresses or things in my hair, could have cared less about the prom. But having a little girl is so different. I love to put Bailey in dresses and bows in her hair. I think tights are the best and bright colors a must.
There are days when I think of myself as a better 'boy' mom than a girl mom and I have already thought that if we do have two more children, I would be OK if there were both boys. But I am so grateful for Bailey. There is just something about having a little girl, it really is something special and I truly got lucky with mine.
Even when she points her finger at me, says 'NO' and walks sassily away from me, I still love her.

We have visited a local orchard here in Virginia three times in the last five days. Maybe it's because of my love for apple crisp, or the desire to overuse my nifty apple peeler/corer/slicer I got last year for Christmas form my mother-in-law. Could be the feeling of guilt that overcomes me when I think of my grandmother not getting her Stayman apples.
But really it's just the way that Bailey responds to the orchard's pet goats. Even after her fourth time there this fall she still thinks they are amazing.

I realize I haven't posted very often lately, so I am challenging myself (due to a comment on another of my blogs) to post three times a week. We'll see how long that lasts.

The super big mug says "World's Best Dad, Hands Down" and has Bailey and Coopers hand prints on it.

a token to put in my pocket
and I will own that one thing
and it would make me happy
I just want a small piece of you
somethin to put in a locket
and i will look at it daily
and that will make me happy
I guess it's human nature to want to hold you very still
I guess it's in a mother to inject a little guilt
Go on son and see the world;
I hope you see it all
But please please please don't forget to call
Free to fly free to go free to not look back
That's how free I want you though it scares me half to death
Free to wander miles and miles and free to come back home
That's how free I want you though it chills me to the bone...
Go on son and spread your wings;
I hope that you take flight
But please please please don't forget to write
I know you're just a baby sleeping in your bed
And you probably have other thoughts drifting through your head
I know this conversation's a little premature
It's just that I've heard eighteen years goes by like a blur
-Sara Groves "Small Piece of you"
To all the mothers out there, have a happy mother's day.
