Russian tea cakes. Both turned out delicious! The tea cakes were a new recipe for us and a nice addition. Today (yay for nap time!) I made chocolate sprinkle cookies. They are so fresh out of the oven, I haven't even tried them yet! Now, to ensure there are still some left for Chritmas..... how do I do that?
We shared some of our cookies with our neighbors. I had found the perfect gift for them that doubled as a container for the cookies. It was a beer pitcher for the dedication of our local firehouse, where the husband serves as a fireman.
Chase has also been practicing his standing. Lots of pulling up then sitting back down. He's gotten pretty good! We've covered crawling, clapping, and standing in very little time. He has been in his 8 month sleep regression, waking up between 1-3 am for a bottle. Last night was the first night in probably 3 weeks that I didn't get up to feed him. Mind you, he woke up a lot but always quieted down before he needed me. I looked at the monitor at one point, thinking I might be needed, and he was sitting up in the corner of the crib playing. I made a bottle and walked into his room to find him sprawled out, asleep. He's taking an extra long nap this morning to make up for it I guess!
He's eating everything! Anything we offer, he'll try. And most likely like! We've tried turkey, eggs, potatoes, pizza crust, and pasta this month. I'm guessing lots of other things I'm forgetting too as he typically eats what I eat. We just started the sippy cup today at breakfast.
