Clara's cooking demo

Wow.. Has it really been almost a month since I've posted on this blog? In my mind I post here all the time. Almost every day I think of some funny thing Clara did or some new thing Luke said that I should just hop on and share. But apparently I never do!

So, just to get something new up here, here's a video I shot of Clara yesterday. She was helping me make lunch - broccoli soup. Her absolute FAVORITE. This girl can put away an adult-sized helping or two of my broccoli soup like it's nothing.

Anyway, I don't let her "help" as often as I should. It's not easy with two kids because I can't do it with both at the same time. But with Luke strapped into his high chair, I pulled Clara up a chair (nothing fancy or too safe) and she loved using the measuring cups and spoons with some water that I let her have (it's all about the water). Before I knew it, she was going on and on and on, talking away, as if she was instructing someone. I swear it sounded like she was giving a cooking demonstration!

So here it is... the video that we can only hope will jump-start Clara's new career as a celebrity chef...

So cute, Anne does the same thing, just chit chats up a storm. By the way Clara's hair is adorable, how in the world do you find the time to color coordinate like that?

I love how she keeps repeating "milk" and "water" as these are the KEY ingredients to her soup!

Omg she makes me LAUGH!!!
SOOOO cute. I love her!!

I love how she says "SUUUPs" over and over again. Clearly she knows what she is making! And yes she is patiently explaining it to her viewers. "Ok" must be a key word at this age because Lucy is into saying it in every sentence, too! So funny!!!

Amazing video!!! I think that she will become a good chef:) She's just gorgeous with her commenting how she's cooking. I hope she won't be fed up with it, when she understands that we do it every day:))
