Cookie Monster

Soren is such a caring Dad. He really personalizes how Easton feels. This is evident in how quickly he changes a poopy diaper, whether or not he lets him stay in a soggy shirt, or how long he wants to let him cry in bed. Today we made cookies while Easton was asleep. They turned out amazing and as we picked out ones to eat he said, "Oh I'm saving this one for Easton!" (Note: We do not feed Easton cookies-maybe nibbles on rare occasion.) He then decided to run upstairs and leave a cookie for Easton, in his bed, to find when he woke up. I found it pretty funny although I doubted he would find the cookie, or a least we would hear him before he ate it. Well see what we did find when heard his first post-nap peep-

Yes Easton had found the cookie....

And eaten every crumb except the chocolate that was smashed in his bedding. We were both very surprised. Even if he did eat the cookie, we didn't expect him to lick his bed clean.

When I read this, it cracked me up so much that Danny asked what I was laughing at, and when I read it to him, and showed him the photo, he laughed just as much as I did! How cute! (And I think it's okay to give your baby cookies sometimes!)

Thanks for the nice comments! January was definitely a good month - I highly encourage you to keep track of your own accomplishments! No matter how small or silly, it's important to make every day count.

Good advice on the elliptical! I'll have to try that next week. I've been looking into spin classes for a while - have you tried it before? I have heard it is really intense, so I'm a little hesitant, but I'm in better shape now than I have been in a long time, so I guess there's no time like the present to try it out. :)

I have a picture of my glasses further down on my blog if you want to see. I love them a lot! New glasses are always great!

Wish we could shop at The Body Shop together! :) I also wish I could hold your little Cookie Monster again - so adorable!

Miss you.
