Baking with Mommy

There is not a day that goes by that I do not thank God for giving me the privilege of having a daughter.

I love knowing that I will be able to teach her things about being a woman, a wife, and a mother.  I've spoken before about how I have a great love of all things that happen in the kitchen--and this is probably the thing I am most excited about passing along to her!

Today, one day before her first birthday party, we spent the morning baking cakes and cupcakes.  It was so much fun watching her.  She had quite a ball with this task!

Checking out the strainer and wooden spoon.
" just what is this?"

"Yummy.  This one tastes good."

Around the head, behind the head....

....and on top of the head!

"Do you like my hat?!"

I'm so, so thankful for Lola girl. I could not love this little face more!

After she was done playing, she decided to show me her most recent trick, and stood up all by herself!
Of course, my hooting around about how great she was doing led to her clapping for herself!

Only two more days and I will have a one-year-old!
