O.k... there's probably a few other self indulgent reasons I bake, but I love watching Noa have so much fun too! I remember doing the same thing when my mom would bake...
Noa has really been a great helper lately! She was helping Daddy make the bed by giving him the pillows when he needed them, and today she wanted to help me sweep the kitchen. :)
She's also going to be such a good mommy someday! Whenever Ruthie falls asleep on the couch, I always find her covered with things Noa thinks she needs (like her water bottle, paci and a washcloth!). Ruthie's a good sport though. She rarely even moves when Noa violently hugs her or piles things on top of her.
She's really starting to look like herself and not mini Noa. In fact, the older she gets, the less I think she resembles her big sister. What a sweet, beautiful girl!
