Q helped me bake muffins early this morning. He did a good job stirring in the blueberries before his curiosity got the better of him and he made a grab for the batter with his other hand. I had been waiting for that moment and managed to get the bowl and spatula away before goop went flying. He was so excited to help! No photographs - not enough hands.

I used the cute mini trays for most of the muffins, so that we wouldn't have to break big ones into pieces for him to eat. Nanny J told me later that Q ate four mini-muffins at his second breakfast, so not to bother with the little size anymore. He can handle full sized treats.

Q and I took a walk this evening, carefully avoiding the street of the legendary tempting cactus. We passed beneath a big tree that had shed dried berries all over the sidewalk, and Q discovered that they made a satisfying crunching sound underfoot. It was a quiet street, so I allowed him to let go of my hand and crunch back and forth about forty times, until he was quite certain that no berry had been neglected.

That's so sweet. The little boy so intent on the crunch under his feet. I love that picture.
