Burl's First Chop

Winter (combined with my pregnancy) has kept us indoors more than we're used to, so we are doing ALL THE THINGS we can in our house. Recently, I let Burl play with knives...

Ok, playing with knives is a much looser way of describing what I really did. I let Burl chop with my chef's knife during dinner prep a few nights ago. When time and energy allows, I love to involve the kids in cooking, and chopping was a big step for us. He was so careful and I was so proud. It was very exciting to see how well he did with this-it felt like such a milestone, up there with first steps or first smiles. I guess I could call it his first chop. 

And just for good measure, I looked up one of my all time favorite pictures of cooking with baby Burl:
