Making Cookies

We’ve baked several trays of cookies so far. The kids have fun putting on lots of sugar and sprinkles.






Oh. And it snowed!! Not much, but it lasted through most of the day and somehow did not delay or cancel school. It was a pretty exciting thing to wake up to, and Nora even liked poking around in it this year.

Nora and her Food

I realized that I had taken quite a few short videos lately of Nora eating things, so I put them all together. You can see her eat with a spoon and fork, say “Whoa!” about big bites, eat ice cream, say the “YeahYeah!” that we love, and do a little of her favorite joking where she calls me a baby. :)

Crazy Eater

Jonah had his dinner dance. Nora has, well, something different of her own.

Check it out. :)

Eating Arms

Nora has a funny thing she does when she’s eating. Between bites, she stretches her arms straight out, like that’s her way to let me know she’s ready for the next one. Then after she gets some food, she shakes her arms up and down, almost like she’s celebrating. Cracks me up!

4th of July and Carrots

Today we headed to a park in town where they were having an art festival with some music and food. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Here’s Nora, rocking the patriotic clothing for the family. :)



Jonah got to have a bunch of kettle corn… mmmm… and a vegan cupcake which was “really REALLY good!”



Hey! A picture with Mom in it!


We also let Nora try some carrots today (fresh from the farmers market!) We’re supposed to wait five days in between foods, but since she barely ate any rice at all yesterday, we decided that didn’t count and moved on to try a veggie. I’d rather not torture her for the next four days and have her decide that eating is awful. She started out eager…


…and even though she made some pretty amazing faces, she didn’t seem to mind the taste. It just took her a while to figure out what to do with something on her tongue. She actually went on to eat a tablespoon or so.





Jonah pulled up his chair because he wanted to watch Nora with food all over her face.


She did manage several smiles, too. More carrots tomorrow!


That face reminded me of a picture from when Jonah tried squash.
