Transitioning and Chocolate

School is almost starting!!! I can't believe I will have TWO kindergarteners- that is so big. Kindergarten. I think that that is when I start to have school memories. Anyway! We found some time to cook together- this time chocolate covered strawberries (does that count as cooking?)

Ricky follows along with whatever everyone else is doing. They empty the dishwasher, he empties the dishwasher. They play with bubbles in the bath, he plays with bubbles in the bath. "Oh, we're dipping strawberries in melted chocolate and placing them on a tray. Ok, here I go!" He was a little disappointed not to eat the entire tray after making them- one strawberry was NOT enough-

We drizzled the leftover chocolate over pretzels, and he discovered the joy of licking the spatula- now THAT was enjoyable!

In the past couple of weeks he has gone to see Tonito at kung-fu, the girls at ballet, he's been to 2 different birthday parties, and has had a playdate at a friend's house. He happily goes wherever I take him, and loves to be carried everywhere in the carrier. We are still spoon-feeding him exclusively, although he wants to eat by himself, so he loved licking the spatula with chocolate!
