"Mmm Mmm, Gooood!"

One thing I've always looked forward to with Emma is baking cookies. When I was a child my stepmom Betsy would let me help bake cookies, brownies, and make cakes. I always felt so big and loved helping so of course I've always wanted to share baking with Emma. Recently she has been so independent and always wants to help me cook so today after her nap I said "Emma, would you like to go get some butter and then help mommy bake some chocolate chip cookies?" She says "go get butter and make chocolate cookies?" It was so sweet! So we ran to the grocery and grabbed some butter and extra chocolate chips. We walked back into the house and she said "go make cookies!" We had such a good time and I look forward to all of our baking sessions in the future!

Emma was eyeing those chocolate chips! While I was pouring them in the measuring cup she kept grabbing them and stuffing them in her mouth!

Helping mommy pour the chocolate in. It took lots of willpower for her not to eat them while pouring. :)

As I was scooping she said "Emma help" so I got her her own spoon. Well her idea of helping is sticking the spoon in the mix and then eating it! Don't worry Gabby she hardly got any on her spoon. As she would eat it she would say "YUMMY!" I've got a chocolate lover on my hands. :)

Then she asked for a cup of milk! What a smart little cookie!
