J'adore Theodore




Theo is as tough as a tank - his preferred route is direct rather than easy. He loves animals - his current favorite is a lion and he roars whenever he finds a picture or a toy lion. Busy, busy, busy, and mostly on the run, his mission is to explore every nook and cranny. He is tender and sweet with baby Ysa (with whom he shares a special bond). He loves Bapa and is even pretty fond of me. He prefers to eat very little other than dried cranberries and bananas. He can snuffle like a bunny, "gap" like a fish, and pant like a puppy.  He says only a few words and one of them is "Ys" (eeeees - for Ysa). He likes to sit on my lap and "read" books with me - especially one about Noah's Ark (lots of animals to point out and make sounds for). He loves to forage in my pantry. He is solid and strong and sweeter than sweet. His smile is like the sun and I even find his total despair when something offends him adorable. I am totally, totally, his slave.

Hi Cheri,
I don't often write, but I love your blog. It is great seeing your family as it continues to grow. And... the recipes. It all invokes such great memories and appreciation of family regardless of where our journey takes us. Please know that you are all in my thoughts as you continue to journey through one of your hardest yet deepest spiritual valleys.

K(J)I - thank you. This journey has been very hard but there has been so much wonderful learning and we have been (and continue to be) the recipients of an incredible outpouring of love.

So glad you like my offerings :)
