Mommy's Little Helper

Tess is such an active, helpful baby these days. She doesn't like to be left out of any of the fun!

Tess has been an enormous help with the laundry lately. She waits until the clean clothes are neatly folded before steamrolling right over all the piles--giving them that crisp, pressed finish that even Martha Stewart cannot achieve.

Tess has become quite handy with my rubber spatula. Do you know anyone else who can whip up a cake upside down? Yum. Pineapple Upside Down Cake sure sounds good right now!

Concerned that dad's pants are still a little damp from the dryer, Tess gives them the fresh-air drying treatment, Tasmanian Devil-style.

Knowing that two church callings can be quite a load, Tess graciously helped me out with a Primary project at the church this week. I have decided to delegate any "rolling" required of my callings to her.

"Don't worry, Mom! I won't let you forget your church keys!" How did I ever get along without her? Ok, Tess may not make errands easier, but she does make them more fun!

She is such a flexible little thing! I have a feeling that in later years, she may run away to join the circus...

Okay, is she a mini Ryan or what??!! I've even seen Ry do that funny backwards body hop. Is that some blonde peach fuzz i see on her head?

I hope we win the package!!!!! I don't think I've ever won anything in my life (okay that's not true but it is if it will increase my chances of winning :o) Team Laura

That bend up onto the head trick looks so painful! I'm loving the pics of her helping with laundry. Too cute.

Ann said...

Cutest helper ever! Now can she come over and help me with all my laundry?? She would probably run screaming away! :o)

Ann said...

I emailed my entry to you. Let me know that you got it!
