Kitchen fun and other updates

We have had a very busy and super fun week!  My dad came to visit last Wednesday for an extended Labor Day weekend, mom joined us on Friday night, and we had non-stop fun all weekend...those details will be in another post, and that's the reason why it's taken me so long to update the blog! 

In the days before they arrived, James and I spent lots of time in the kitchen.  He loves to be right in the mix when I'm cooking, and I can usually find him a job.  He pushes his chair over to the counter all by himself, climbs us and reaches for something to do. He's great at pushing the buttons on the blender, toaster, and food processor, likes to stir (although it gets quite messy), pour ingredients together, and be right there "helping."  It really is quite sweet, and warms my heart.  I know he's less than two years old, but I would just be ecstatic if he grows to love cooking with his momma :)

In bedtime news...we've been back in a healthy routine.  He's going to bed and staying there.  No more 15x up every night, thank God!  I about blew a gasket that week...ugh.  Steven is gone again for the next two weeks in the field and so far we've had no issues!  It's only been three days, but I'll take every day of no drama that I can get!  He has been sweet at bedtime, loves to take baths and read tons of books, wants to snuggle and hug before he climbs into bed, and loves his binkey and pillow. 

A few pictures of James helping cook, some with a big fruit smoothie mustache, and a sweet one of James and Daddy 'working' in the office!
