Treasured Moments - Selena's First Baking Experience

Here is my little girl, trying to figure out what do do with the measuring spoon I just put in her hand!

We had a little mishap with a certain white stool that was placed before the kitchen aid to elevate a certain tiny person to a greater height.

That certain tiny person fell off the stool and onto the floor. There were many tears.

Because of the aforesaid mishap, a certain tiny person preferred to be held for the duration of the mixing.



Dipping the dough in sugar and cinnamon required much concentration. Yes, my friends, she is doing the dipping on the floor. But I promise I had recently mopped and vacuumed. I mean, the stool thing clearly didn't work out, so I had no other recourse! Please don't cringe.



"Yummy Scrummy Cinnamon and Sugar"(in our house this means re-ally yummy)


The best part is eating!!

That certain little tiny person is *adorable* in her chef's hat and apron! :)
Such fun that she is now old enough to tackle the baking with you in the kitchen! :)

Love,

You live an adventurous live. Much more so than your mom. What a happy experience for her--well minus the stool incident.

Adorable! She looks so grown-up in all these pictures.

lol, then Aw, poor baby. She is so cute. I'm sorry her cooking experience turned out that way. But as you said "Eating is the best part." :o)
Your music surely is pretty.

Oh, my goodness! She is SO adorable!! I've got a picture of my "little chef" (Isabel) just like your first one of Lena: hat, apron and all. TOO CUTE!! I'm so glad you're baking with her. You're such a good mama, sharing all your experiences together. I love it.
