Finally Got Around To…
…Making those oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I posted about!
After T’s EKG, we went over to play with Braci & Jalen. Jalen is 3 whole days older than T, so Braci & I always have a lot to talk about! While we were there, I brought over the ingredients for the cookies (minus the chocolate chips… which I forgot. Of course. Braci thankfully had some on hand. I now have chocolate chips to snack on at home!). They turned out pretty good, although there was a minor discrepancy about the flaxseed. Apparently, I was supposed to buy flaxseed meal. I bought flaxseed. Whoops. We found out after the fact that you can grind the flaxseed in a coffee grinder and add them to the cookies that way. By then it was too late. I’m not very good at following directions!
Anyways, the cookies were yummy, and the babies had a good time. Jalen has cool toys… T really liked his Johnny Jump Up. We might be making a trip to Target to get one soon. He bounced up and down and enjoyed spinning himself around to get a 360 view of the room.
Jalen & T are becoming friends, so we thought they should have a picture together. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to try to capture a picture of TWO 4-month-olds? Someone is always moving. By someone, I mean T. Also, he doesn’t understand that we can’t eat our friends. We have to work on that. It won’t be long before these two are “rasslin” together.
Eventually, we got a keeper! Stressful EKG aside, I give this day an A+!
P.S. Braci, if you’re reading this, I went back and looked at the recipe again. It DID call for baking soda. Again with the following directions!
