I am soaking up and inhaling every moment of this new year. I can't explain how wonderful it has been to spend much needed quality time with my girls. There have been no parties to attend and no photos to edit. There has been a lot of time spent baking in the kitchen, reading books and snuggling on the couch. I could get used to this slower pace of life. I can honestly tell a difference in my relationship with P. She has always been a mama's girl, but she has gotten even more attached. Not in a bad way, but I think she's loving my undivided attention. I get random tight squeezes on my legs and extra kisses. I'm loving it all.
On my latest trip to Target, I noticed that the Valentine's candy has hit the shelves. Aside from Easter candy, Valentine's candy is my favorite. I grabbed a few bags of Dove milk chocolate hearts and mustered up a plan to make cookies with the littles.
P is obsessed with the apron my mama made her for Christmas and even more so with the one that she made for her Bitty Baby. I couldn't wait to see them in action.
^^^ P also has a thing for her pj's lately. If she's not naked she's in her footed jammies. ^^^
^^^ This little doll likes getting in on the action as well. ^^^
^^^ P loves licking all of the brown sugar out of the measuring cups. She's just like her daddy in that way. ^^^
^^^ Her favorite part of making cookies is watching all of the ingredients combine and putting her hand on the mixer to make sure it doesn't lift up. I think she has watched me bake a time or two before. ^^^
^^^ Testing out the dough is a necessity. ^^^
