Fun in the Kitchen

Otto LOVES to help in the kitchen. Loading the dishwasher, sweeping, and especially mixing anything that's cooking. He heat checks everything and generally pronounces it 'Hot!'.

Yesterday he was helping while I was loading the dish washer. Generally I try to do this while he is sleeping because he has a hard time resisting the lure of the silverware tray and will grab a dirty utensil and run away as fast as he can. But yesterday he woke up more quickly than I was expecting and was trying to 'help'. We had several eye to eye 'No touch, yuck dirty.' discussions before I finally took him to the couch and turned on an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba. (Buys about 4 1/2 minutes of time) I finished up, added soap, and let him push start. This morning while unloading I discovered this:
A very clean, and surprisingly not dead, headless electric razor. I'm not sure how he managed to slip in it, but apparently he must have thought it could use a thorough washing too.

Today after breakfast Otto helped make a special treat for his Uncle Michael who broke his leg last weekend at a soccer tournament. We made cookies and Otto loved measuring and mixing the ingredients. While they were baking he played in his fort. (Diaper box from Amazon that has been taking up space in the living room for two weeks because he loves it.) 
He also kept running to the oven to check the cookies progress and remind me that he was going to need a sample when they were done. This was illustrated by him saying, 'Hot, hot' and licking his lips.
He did get to try them when they were done because he stung together his first sentence by saying, 'Hot! Took-tee pleash?' It was too cute not to reward:)

Hope you enjoy them Michael and heal quickly!
