Ian has always been such a good little helper. Even before Owen was born he would want to help us do things. He especially loves picking up trash (or things he thinks is trash but isn't) and throwing it away. Since Owen was born he is really good at helping us throw away diapers! Well today Owen was crying and crying and I couldn't figure out what was going on with him. I changed him, I tried feeding him. Nothing was working. When I went to throw away his diaper Ian picked up the bottle and started feeding him. Instantly Owen started to eat and stopped crying! I would even try to help Ian out and he would say "no, no", he wanted to do it all by himself! I took some pictures. Ian doesn't look too thrilled, but he really was. He was concentrating so hard on feeding and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Yesterday we had our friend Lindsey over for dinner. Her husband works out on an oil rig so he is home for a week or two then off at work for a week or two. I don't know why I hadn't thought of this sooner. Anyways, she came over for pizza and then I went to her house and helped her with some cookies. I told her several times that cookies are not my thing, but she still trusted me enough to roll the cookie dough and cut shapes with the cutters. It was fun doing that and made me want to bake some! I told Justin that and he said something to the effect of "oh so you took a day off from wanting to bake?" He was being silly, but of course it is true. I want to bake everyday. I just love it! Lindsey and I decided it is therapeutic. I also enjoy making people happy when I give it to them. So today at Target I got some Pillsbury sugar cookies with the pictures in the middle (Christmas tree and reindeer) and made them. My friend Misti is planning on coming over and we are going to try to outline the pictures in the middle with icing. Hoping it goes well, if not who cares, they taste yummy! I will post some pictures if they turn out good. :)
This weekend Justin and I are participating in a 5K in downtown OKC! I am excited. It has got both of us walking on the treadmill this week in preparation. I will let you know how that goes too.
