5 1/2 days old!
"Cookie" was my grandfather's nickname when he was a little boy (and, as he became an adult, people also called him Cook).
As of Thursday, March 24th at 12:34 pm -- a good time for lunch or anything delicious to come into one's life -- I have my own little boy "Cookie." Cook is his middle name, officially, and I hope my grandfather, who passed away in December and is very missed, would be pleased to know that.
This little boy is tantalizing and sweet, of course, but I'm also working out how to fit blogging into my new routine. I have no intention of quitting the snacks, so fit it in I will. And, I realized, a new vista of snacking has opened up before me once the kid is on solid food. How exciting!
Coincidentally also regarding cookies (and also of the non-edible variety), Rachel's 2 1/2 year old daughter was playing with my phone last night. She and I enjoy the app Cookie Doodle. It's pretty fun. You can (virtually) bake, decorate, and eat a whole cookie jar's worth of treats.
Here's a photo I found in my inbox this morning. I guess my little friend accidentally emailed it to me (she's smart, but not smart enough to have done it on purpose). It features just a few of the cookies we've made using this app.
