Inquiring Minds Want To Know!!

Sam is at that age where he asks many, many, many questions. Ella went through the same thing, but at only a fraction of the pace Sam is. In fact she's into it now more than she was at Sam's age. Maybe they're feeding off each other or something??!!

What's that mommy? What's that mommy? I've learned that there are many thing that I don't know what they are or at least what they are technically called. "Um, it's such and such, but I'm not sure what it's called." Makes me feel really smart...

He also likes to point out everything and I mean everything. "Look mommy a hill. Look mommy a dump truck. Look mommy a bird." He's really into cars like Ella was but he has Ella who's been teaching him the different types of cars and he's pretty good at picking them out. He knows his Jeep's, most construction vehicles, semi's, dump trucks, mini coopers, bug cars, cars that look like mommy and daddy's, etc.

The other day I took the kids to Target and I was starting to go absolutely nuts with the questions! They were coming from both kids...at once!!! I was clearly outnumbered . Ella mostly wants to know exactly what certain things do while Sam just wants to know what they are. Let me tell you this kid is going to be brilliant. (Not that I'm biased.)

I'm learning very quickly how much a second child can learn from the older child. I think it makes a big difference that they are almost 3 1/2 years apart. She's learning so many things at school and Sam is just at that age where he's really soaking it up. Such a little sponge!! Ella just loves playing teacher and Sam is most happy to oblige!

Now on to food because I'm all about food these days. I made a homemade apple pie yesterday and oh was it yummy! I can't remember the last time I made a pie, but I had these apples in the fridge (healthy huh?) and they weren't getting eaten. So I baked a pie (not as healthy!). Made me the crust and did a lattice top that was very pretty. Turned out very well and I did take a picture that I'll put up on my other blog. I wonder what yummy things I can bake today? I really need some warmer weather so I can get out of the kitchen!!
