As you will see as you carry on down the page, I had a wee helper in the kitchen today.
Cooper loves watching me cook and bake. I always bring ingredients over to him and let him touch and smell. His favourite thing is to stir.
If I am making a sauce, I will bring him over to the cooker, holding him at a safe distance of course and let him have a go at stirring. He loves it.
I can tell he is taking it all. We bought him a little pan set for his Christmas and as soon as we gave him a spoon he started stirring and tasting. I have a wee chef in the making.
Tomorrow we are having a party for Cooper's first birthday, so as you can imagine I have spent the day cooking and baking. I brought Cooper into the kitchen in his high chair, so he could watch me bake. He was eager to join in, so I let him help me fold the chocolate batter into the whipped egg whites. He was a very happy wee chap.
You can see the chocolate cake we made here. Tomorrow morning I will fill it with cream and top it with blackberries and blueberries.
