First, I have to say I've been totally slacking on our birthday posts!!! My goodness what kind of mother am I? A busy one? Ha, ha! We've had two birthdays already this month, with the third coming tomorrow! Hopefully I can get those up soon. Better late than never, right?
This morning I decided we would have pumpkin muffins for breakfast. Jed has been wanting to help out around the house a lot more. He has been helping to clean and cook. It is pretty neat to see. He has never really been very involved in the things I do. Jonah, on the other hand, and Aubrey, and most of the girls for that matter, usually want to help me with what I am doing. Even if I invite him over, or ask him if he wants to join in....nope. He would usually do his own thing. The past month has been different. He's been pulling up a chair to help me with what I am doing. So this morning he decided that *he* was going to make the muffins :-) He wanted to count everything we put in. For the most part that wasn't a problem. Four teaspoons of this, two of that. It got a bit more daunting when he wanted to scoop out the pumpkin, on his own, one little scoop at a time...and count each scoop! It only took him 21 scoops :-) The funny thing is that he thinks that last number in any of our counting needs to be zero. After he says zero, he will say, "Blast off!" Too funny.
I decided to grab the camera as he was filling up the muffin tins. All by himself, mind you.
