This morning Logan & I went to a baby shower where I had the chance to showcase my cheesecake making skills. I made mini cheesecakes in cupcake form. They were the hit of the shower. So much that everyone was asking for the recipe. They were low-cal (lower than typical cheesecake, anyway), low sugar & low fat. I was pretty proud of myself. Other than eating a bunch of food, the shower was fun, with kids running around like crazy hooligans.
Recently, I've been working really hard with Logan on sign language. He's a stubborn little guy, only signing when he wants to. However, he clearly knows the sign for "eat" & will demonstrate it when it's meal time. This afternoon, Bill mentioned the word "eat" while in the car & what do you know, Logan is in his car seat signing for "eat". I also tried working on "more", which he repeated once, but that was it.
The other really, really, really cute thing that he's done in the last couple of days is mimic Buddha. The other day, Buddha was in the kitchen panting. Logan was watching him, then laughed really hard & started panting along with him. It was the funniest thing I've ever seen. So now Logan randomly pants & sometime crawls around on the floor pretending he's like Buddha.
This afternoon after Logan woke up from his nap, I let him run around upstairs. We've been learning how to get down the stairs without parental help. Logan is a smart kid, hanging onto the railing & sliding down on his rear. This is something that he just did automatically, without my help. Well, while we were working on the stairs, he climbed back up to go to his room. He grabbed his shoes, brought them over to me & said "go". I was shocked! I asked him if he wanted to go somewhere & he repeated "go". This was not a fluke.
Between mini cheesecakes & Logan learning how to communicate, it's been a pretty sweet day!
