The finished product!I was watching the food network the other day and Paula Deen was having a everything chocolate show, so I recorded it because it looked so yummy and I wanted to try the donuts. I had to search her web site for the donut recipe because it was easier than writing everything down while I was watching.
Now, I sometimes have a tendency to mess things up...even if I follow the recipe. I followed all of the instructions, but I would do one thing different when making the actual donuts. I should have used clean oil. They tasted like french fries because we like to make home made french fries, and I suppose I could use a different type of oil if I wanted to. But the donuts were very easy to make and form and cook. The chocolate sauce was a bit harder. It looked really easy when Paula and her son made it, so I thought there was nothing to it. Well, when it was done cooking, it looked way too runny, maybe I didn't cook it long enough, I don't know. So I ended up adding a lot more powdered sugar to thicken it up. It wasn't quite right, but the overall donut was a bust because it tasted like fries. Oh, and I had waaaay to much sauce left over for the amount of donuts anyhow. Maybe I'll get adventurous some other time, but probably not, since it is cheaper to go and buy whatever kind of yummy donut you want. And there is a lot less mess to clean up when you buy!
But they sure look yummy!

Luke is growing up way toooooo fast! We just can't believe it! I guess now it's only a matter of time until he is crawling all over the place!
He has also learned to hold his own bottle, I'm not quite sure when or how he learned to do that because he rarely gets bottles. But it's pretty cute I think!

On the napping front....he is doing pretty well. He will take about 2 or 3 naps, which is pretty normal for some 6 mo. olds from what I have been reading. We love that Luke is in bed about 6 or 6:30 and that he will generally sleep until 6:30 or 7 in the morning! We have been walking this week after breakfast, we try and have a walk about 8 am. If we go and walk in the morning before it gets too hot, we don't have to go out the rest of the day if we don't want to! It's been really nice this week, just to be able to be at home and work on firming up Luke's schedule!

But... I am happy to report that other things are going well here, Luke is just getting cuter everyday (I will get to posting pictures soon, we have to back up the computer before that has problems too!) and we are really enjoying having him in our family. Luke really likes Ender and Ender is learning fast to stay away from Luke's little fingers that are now grabbing everything in sight! And Luke is working on learning how to sit up all by himself!
