So Eric and I have been cramming for Charlotte’s one-year check up with the doctor. There is this test that we are supposed to put her through to see if she is up to speed on baby skills. Stuff like one handed cartwheels, obstacle courses, and speed reading.
Just kidding. It’s really a list of stuff that you should be doing with your kid to help them develop, like peek-a-boo and waving bye-bye. We are trying to get them all checked off before her appointment so that we can add “smartest baby in the world” to our previously accomplished “cutest baby in the world” achievement.
Charlotte has yet to take her first step. A few days ago I was in the other room when Eric called to me, Karen this is it! I’ve found a way to get Charlotte to walk! I came in expecting him to be luring her with his iPhone.
I’ve only been in Utah for four months and I’m already making weird jello combinations. What is happening to me? Seriously though, this stuff rocks. It is the perfect sweet and salty combo. Healthy people would call it a dessert, but that’s not how I roll.
The other day my brother gave me this link which his friend Kristy had sent to him with the comment, Get Karen to make this!!! It is not at all a waste of time! It is a video of somebody making an origami crane out of jello. Yes you read that right. And all this while the.coolest.song.ever. plays in the background (Rill Rill by the band Sleigh Bells). My favorite parts about this video:
- The fact that there are absolutely no measurements
- Their huge container of gelatin. Where did they even get that?
- The only other things they have in their fridge to go with their jello-cranes is a can of Crisco and a beer.
- The part where they are making a paper crane and say Sorry you can’t see this part . . . It’s important.
What can I say? Today is just a jello day.
