Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.
Friday, September 28, 2007Look for a reflection on 12 months of nursing coming up soon...
For now, I want to throw this post up before it hits midnight and I'm too late. :)
Happy Birthday Emmitt!
We didn't have a big party, just my cousin and her boyfriend came over. Greg's parents are coming tomorrow, so I figured I'd do cupcakes. That way, even if we eat some, you can still "see" what the cake looks like. I ended up doing Cookie Monster cupcakes. They came out way better than I thought they might.
They were super easy to make too. :)
Bonus Video: Emmitt playing with a new ball last week.
Finally, a birthday story...
This morning, Nora, Emmitt and I were on the back porch and I was asking Nora if she remembered when Emmitt joined our family. She said she did. I asked her if she remembered where he came from (thinking she'd say the porch, because she was in the living room watching cartoons while he was being born on the porch.)
She looked at me and said "plane" while signing plane.
I laughed and said "Emmitt came on the plane?"
Ok then. Apparently in our technology filled world, the stork has been replaced by the airplane.
...then again, this is the same kid who thinks all school buses are "going for ice cream." Man, is SHE in for a rude awakening...
