I love this photo...a sweet frame with his nose scrunched, lips curled up in a belly laugh
and a chubby little chin drenched in drool.
When we put him down with his lovey at night he will turn it over until he can get his face into the soft part. He is our little cuddle bug.
He is also our little mischievous one.
He is climbing everything...and have I mentioned that he is walking?
He also knows which parent will fall for his fake cry.
And he eats everything in sight.
He definitely gets way more "real" food than Moses did at this age.
We are planning a co-celebration with our nephew Blake who is two weeks younger.
Well, Blake isn't planning much. :)
But we're planning a weekend with Doug's siblings, parents and Uncle B to head to Baltimore!
We are SO excited to see them all and to take Moses and my niece to the aquarium!
I grew up nearby so I have been a ton but I love it...
So he cannot wait to see "sharks at the aquarium" and to see "kyee" and all his other relatives.
I don't know that there is a more perfect age to take a child to the aquarium.
Try this Cardamom coffee cake...it is heavenly!
2 c. light brown sugar
2 tbsp. vanilla
2 c. sour cream
(I only had 1 cup on hand so I did 1 cup sour cream and 1 cup vanilla yogurt)
4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. powdered cardamom
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (Doug doesn't like nuts so I did choc chips instead)
Spoon 1/3 of the batter into a well buttered tube or bundt pan, then 1/2 of the nut mixture, then 1/3 batter, then remaining nuts, then remaining batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours until brown on top and dry when you insert a probe all the way down. Turn onto a plate after 10 minutes of cooling.
