My daughter is going to make me broke.
In case you didn’t know I have a 5 month old beautiful daughter named Ava. I used to be almost annoyed by those who said “my child changed everything” or “motherhood is the best gift” mostly because those statements seemed a bit sappy for my taste and I just didn’t understand. Then it happened to me, and at about 4 months in, I got it. My world really did change because I was no longer the center of it. I get to watch her discover everything and teach her everything. She doesn’t even know what a sunrise is or what it means! How cool that I get to rediscover the world through her eyes. Yup, I am sappy now.
And baby sized shoes. I mean how can you not be a TOTAL SUCKER for baby sized shoes?! GAH. She is going to make me broke and trust me I have already spent a small fortune on her.
On another sweet note…
These cookies are addictive. They are like a kitchen sink cookie meets coconut macaroon. And had a sweet baby. Eat up.
