NC.com in Family circle & pupcakes & my genius baby....

shellibeanshellibean Posts: 4,500Registered Users
I bought the April issue of Family Circle b/c it had puppy dog cupcakes jpyiyc.jpg on the front cover that I want to make for River's first birthday. i open it up & there is an article a/b NC.com!!! What a surprise!

Then, my friend (who loves him to death) asks River, "Which puppy do like best, baby? Which do you want at your party?" he smiles and points @ teh one that looks like our Boxer! I am shocked! Thinking that it might be a fluke, I ask him & he points to the same one! We buy it & take it home & I show my husband & he points to the same one! It's not just a pat on the cover; he gets his pointy finger and looks for a second and then points on it! So , we are amazed & are showing everyone who comes over!

    Why are you amazed? Doesn't it make sense that he would pick the one that looks like his dog?
    I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.

    I'm always shocked when babies start connecting things.

    I showed one of my nanny kids a book of Ireland (where they're from) when we were at Barnes and Noble. The mother didn't know that I showed him the book. When they went back days later, she told me that he brought the book over to her out of the blue and was like "Look! It's a book of Ireland!"

    For a second she thought he read the cover. He's a little over 2 so she was shocked that he remembered that I showed him the book.


    P.S.- those cupcakes look fantastic

    That's so sweet! And those cupcakes are adorable (and way WAY past my skill level).

    My daughter is two and everyday she does something that *I* think is brilliant (my husband is worse than I am. Apparently he's never seen another child, ever. Actual Daddy Commentary: OH MY GOD. DID YOU SEE THAT? She just SCRATCHED HER KNEE. Her knee was itching and she SCRATCHED IT. HOW did she know to do that? She is gifted!).

    My brithday was in early Jan. My mom made a cake with a dog on it...the dog was made of two cupcakes and a bunch of icing. It looked like a chocolate version of our dog. It's the end of March and EVERY.TIME. we go to my mom's house, S wants to know where is the chocolate puppy.

    When it comes to sugar they have surprisingly long memories.

    CGE- I was amazed that he associated the cartoonish looking dog to the real dog.

    Sonny- he just turned 10 months.

    Scuba~ his favorite word is Dog. He always is "talking" about the "Gogs"!! When we walk downstairs in the mornings and see them waiting at the door to go out, He squeals and screams "Gog! Gog!" I'm glad they are so good with him b/c he just LOVES them!!

    I made some kitty cat cupcakes similar to those last summer for my nephews' birthday. They were a hit.

    I think that sounds pretty smart. River is clearly a genius! :)

    A Boxer: 2nitdgw.jpg, but the cupcakes that looks most like them are the solid brown ones.

    Most loving dog breed I have ever owned in my life!

    Well you have to make him pupcakes now!

    You should post a picture of the final product. I sometimes wonder how close the average person could get to recreating these kinds of recipes.

    Um, my son's first word was poop, and he'd point to the cats tail and then try to get you to follow him to the litterbox and say poop again!!
    Those are so cute!
