My daughter is now at an age where she wants to do it all herself.  Although things may take longer now that I have to wait for her, it’s just amazing watching my baby figure things out on her own.  Well, now my 3-year-old has helped me a lot in the kitchen.  She sets the table and assists in the food making process pretty frequently.  Food brings family together, that’s something we strongly believe.  So when we’re at the table,  we forget about what’s going on outside our home.  We don’t touch our phones, check our emails, or see what’s on TV.  We live in the moment and savor the memories.  My baby boy recently began to eat table food, he’s still getting used to the texture and new flavors.  When new food touches his little tongue, he makes some adorable and funny faces.  Which ends up making my daughter giggle.  Her high-pitched giggle with her big brown eyes and his cute squinting face are moments that will forever stay in my mind.   Moments like these, we’ll never get back.  The love shared for our children is pure magic, unlike any other.  I didn’t know a love like this existed until I became a mother.
