The Cookie Monster

Jillian has a SERIOUS sweet tooth. She could and would survive on fruit and sugar alone if I just let her! I fully intended to be one of those moms who didn't let their kid have cookies until they were like teenagers or whatever...but come on! Everyone deserves a little treat now and then! And...if you could just here the way that Jillian says, "Cookie, Pwease!" then you would also cave and give her one! So, here she is the other night after dinner when she is eating her cookie! SO GROSS! I always wonder how chocolate can completely multiply by 1000 in a child's mouth!

Jillian doing her best Cindy Crawford impersonation!

She HATES HATES HATES having her hands dirty! She immediately wants me to clean them no matter what...even if she isn't done eating the messy item! Such a girl!

All done...or in Jillian's language..."Ga Gone"

And here she is after we hosed her down and scrubbed that chocolate off!

By the way...Baby #2 will be here in 5 days, if you don't count today...which I NEVER do!

I can't believe Jules will be here that soon! Crazy... Enjoy your time as a family of three! We have serious sweet teeth around here too! Emery and I are trouble together. Cute pictures!

I've wondered about that chocolate multiplying thing myself! And I also did the "no sweets til they're older" thing for about 18 months with Will, then caved in. With Maggie we didn't quite make it that long...
Is Jillian so excited about the baby coming? I'm sure you've got the whole spectrum of emotions going! We'll be praying for y'all!

I would totally comment on how utterly adorable that child is...but I'm so consumed with the fact that my BFF is having another baby in 5 days!!!!!!!!!

oh jilly like the cookie. Is it wrong that I have not allowed Elem to enjoy any kind of sugar substance? I have the same goal that you originally had...but these days he has been eating animal crackers and vanilla wafers, and then I think his grandparents sneak some in too. Anyways all this to say, if he is going to enjoy it as much as jilli, I might as well just cave huh?
