Day 823: Eat Pie

Those were the wise words of Baby B last night.

I found myself in the midst of a plethora of strawberries.  So, I made HH's favorite fresh fruit pie.  Except that his favorite way is with peaches.  But strawberries are in season.  Peaches, not so much.

Fortunately, he's a big strawberry fan, too.  And once again, making him pie was a Joyful Moment for me.

And apparently, so is Baby B.  Especially, when they're layered with a sweetened condensed milk/lemon juice mixture, piled on a graham cracker crust, and topped with whip cream.

He ate three slices.  Granted, they were smaller than everyone else's piece.  But, still!  He just kept asking for "Mo?"  And then when I reached for the pie, he'd nod emphatically, while saying, "Yeah, yeah."  It was so cute.

But the best was when HH walked in and asked him if he wanted to get ready for bed.  That was when he very matter-of-factly responded, "Eat pie."

It was another Joyful Moment.  And a great laugh shared with HH.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments and someone wise enough to tell you when it's time to eat pie!

Cute post! Cute Baby B! His grandpa loves his advice.
And I'd be happy to just be able to eat one of the berries!

Today's JM - celebrating our 37th anniversary. I made him a card that he really really liked and served dinner by candlelight. (We are going out to dinner Thursday.) And having a relaxed conversation, just what I needed.

Hah! Love it! My JM was also enjoying my baby's expanding vocabulary and thus our ability to communicate SO much better and resolve issues easier. Hooray for talking kiddos!

Mom--Thanks! I thought it was pretty cute, too. And I thought about you as I sliced all of those berries. Hopefully, some day.

And your Joyful Moment is mine, too!

Meg--Can't wait to hear that vocab! It is such a relief when they can finally communicate a bit!
