she's learning her way around the kitchen

I am so proud of Genna. A few days ago she baked a loaf of banana bread 100% by herself. She did such a great job, and we decided to have it as a special breakfast the next morning. It turned out perfect and delicious. Tonight she was feeling a little bored with all the "Isaac safe" meals, and was really wanting a big salad. I encouraged her to make it herself, but let her know that I was happy to help with anything. She tore up her lettuce, cut up tomato and carrots, opened and drained some garbanzo beans, shredded some cheese, and topped it off with a little ranch and a piece of french bread on the side. It's wonderful to see her developing these skills, and even more wonderful to see the confidence she gains with each level of Independence she reaches.
