our quirky toddler keeps us laughing constantly - here she is snuggling with her cement bunny
this little bunny has been in our garden since we bought the house years ago and she's always enjoyed petting and saying hello to the bunny. it wasn't until a few weeks ago that she decided she wanted to bring the bunny in the house and told me, "but mommy, the bunny NEEDS me to snuggle her". she kisses the bunny, sleeps with it, carries it around, talks to it, etc. it's not worth the fight with her because 1) she will win and 2) she will get over this soon enough and move on to something else.
also, she decided last friday it would be fun to drag her mattress into the living room and line her babies up and sit on it. she requested to take her nap in the living room and when i said no we decided on the floor of her room. she ended up sleeping almost 3 hours, which is very rare for her, so maybe she's on to something!
on another note, i went to a baby shower yesterday and brought dessert for everyone. i found this recipe for chocolate souffle cupcakes with mint cream from smitten kitchen, and let me tell you, they were to die for. the whip cream (white chocolate, whip cream and peppermint) was like nothing you've had before and the cupcake was rich and light and just perfect. everyone gave them rave reviews and they were pretty simple to bake. i highly recommend trying them.
