5 on 5 | Muffins

It was a quiet afternoon.

Chloe was napping, and after a 30 minute quiet time (aka "mommy needs to lay in bed by herself and regain her sanity" time) Madi was ready for my complete, undivided attention again. Just like she has been since the day she was born. (Seriously though). I really wanted to clean my kitchen and make dinner, so I asked if she wanted to make muffins ALL by herself. Secretly I didn't think she could do it, but really just wanted her occupied so I could get things done. 

But she did it!! I read her the recipe, and she did everything except for chopping the apples. Then suddenly I realized how crazy fast she is growing. How a few months ago she couldn't pour the vanilla while holding the spoon without spilling it everywhere, but now she can. So I grabbed my camera and took some pictures.

I want to remember my Madi when she was big enough to make muffins all by herself, but little enough to still want to be near me all day long.

I'm pretty sure half the batter made it in the pan, and half went in her mouth. That's what we called made with love. But don't worry- we didn't share these ones. 

And just because I love it when friends share recipes with me, here is the recipe to these yummy muffins. If you have a powerful blender and like making healthy snacks for your family, you'll love them! You're welcome! ;) 

Now it's time for you to head on over to my friend Jenny's blog (a Southern Michigan Documentary Photographer) to see the beautiful story she told this month.
