Be calm. The cupcake massacre decorating that you are witnessing are for Elliot's special and reserved cupcakes. The everybody else cupcakes were completed separately and hidden away before Elliot ever noticed.
These special sprinkles came in the mail from Grandma Deb-Deb. They have topped ALL of Elliot's cooking projects for the last couple of weeks.
(Look at those yummy little fingers. Isn't she is so serious about the frosting.)
The final product. The paper has to be peeled back to get sprinkles and frosting on the sides, too. That's the technique.
Sprinkles aside. Life in Boise is good. I had a midwife appointment today and New Baby was so cooperative. Our midwife let eager Elliot serve as her assistant for the appointment. Elliot got to turn on/off the Doppler, help fasten the blood pressure cuff, squeeze the gel onto my belly. She was in 3-year-old happy land. Shiny bright eyes hero worshipping the midwife. It is amazing when an adult takes just an extra minute to respect the interests and abilities of a little one. It rocks their little worlds. And, as a mama, I am so grateful to that other adult. Anyone who brings joy to my baby's day, has gotta be on Santa's good list.
