This Week with Mady

So here are some highlights from our week.

For valentine's day Mady helped me make a cake for Daddy as her Valentine. This was the most she's ever helped with a project. She helped me count everything going in (but forgets to go in order and will just say random numbers. Haha! She can count just fine, but I think the space between measuring things makes her forget).
She stirred everything together and then she even helped me make the icing and spread it on the cake. I gave her a little spreader and I used the big one. She got started right away. I forgot that 2 year olds have no concept of the right amount of pressure when spreading icing so she basically started gauging the cake (hence all the crumbs in the icing on the left side). Whoops!
Then I put the heart-shaped cutter onto the cake and let her pour in the sprinkles. Pour she did! I think we used half a container.

Mady has gotten into dressing herself lately. The other day she was supposed to be finding a pair of underwear. She came out wearing the covers for under her dresses. All of them (at least the ones she could find).
The green ones are hiding more underneath them.
She cracks me up!
