little cookie monster

Porter learned how to say cookie a few weeks ago. He says it in an almost sad and pouty way, a way so adorable it makes you want to drive across the country and stop at every single bakery along the way and pick up every box of cookies ever made. Just for him. These toddlers man, they're no dummies. They know exactly what they're doing. He tasted a cookie for the first time and the next day he knew how to say cookie. He also tasted a cupcake for the first time at a family get-together several weeks ago and guess what?! You guessed it. He finished the cupcake and said "cupcake?". I mean, really. It took him 1.5 years to say mama and he learned cookie and cupcake in a day?

Needless to say, we've made cookies 18 times since.
