WWU - Baby's First Brownie

Welp, the heat and humidity has arrived for real - and really, we were lucky to not have too many hot runs this late in the year, considering how Texas usually has it in for anyone who exercises outdoors.  But on Saturday, it was 76 degrees at 6:00 am, with a balmy 94% humidity.  That'll slow you down, but hey, at least we all got out and ran, so I'm calling it a win.  And with things getting back to normal with the house, the thought of weekday running doesn't seem like one more thing I have to do; rather, I get to go for a nice little run with Jeff and Diane, and that's a pretty good way to start my day, even if it's well before sunrise.


While we were at Blue Baker on Saturday, Logan showed interest in the brownie ends that our baker bestowed upon us, so naturally, it was time for him to have a taste:
Mom obliged, giving him a taste of the thick chocolate icing...

We figured that the chocolate might be too strong for Logan - after all, who doesn't like chocolate?  But maybe we should have started him out with some milk chocolate.  Next up, a Hershey Bar!  Just kidding - I'm sure he will have plenty of time to develop a love for all things chocolate over his lifetime.

Cary had to go out of town for several days last week, so she was having some extra bonding time with her baby at breakfast:
Pretty obvious they missed each other - a true mother and child reunion right here.


  1. Pretty sure chocolate might taste kind of bitter to a baby! LOL!

  2. Love watching babies discover new things! And cute babies are a bonus.

  3. Funny you should mention humidity. We've had a bit of it and I keep thinking while I'm not ready for the slow-down it brings, I sure am ready for some shorts and t-shirt running. I'm in total agreement on the win of getting out there. I bet you feel relieved to be slipping back into a more normal routine.

  4. We don't have humidity, but flies and mosquitos... I'm starting back to my early morning walks. It does feel good to get part of my exercise done early in the day!

    Logan is so darn cute!! That picture of his first taste of chocolate is classic, and I love the picture of him and his mom.

  5. Aww, that face! LOL!

    I hope you get some random "cool for Texas" days sprinkled here and there this spring/summer! Ugh!

  6. Cary and Logan - that pic is adorable and would melt the coldest heart.

  7. Even a humid run is better than no run, right?
