Last night we went to celebration dinner at Americas, which just opened up on the Waterway. The food was SOOO good! Addison got to dress up for the special occasion.

Unfortunately, we were having so much fun that I was terrible about taking pictures. So see Mary Anderle's blog to see what really went on. She's so much better at telling it than I would be anyways. Thank you Matt and Georgia for a great weekend!!

The chocolate lover in me is very excited to try this recipe. I am such an ice cream fanatic, but trying to get off baby weight and downing Dreyers Fully Loaded Peanut Butter Cup are not good combinations.
Chocolate Coated Mouse Cream Cones
2 cake/ flat ice cream cones
1 Jell-O Sugar Free Pudding Snack
2 TBL sugar-free chocolate syrup
1/2 cup of cool whip (I Love cool-whip!)
Pour 1 tablespoon of chocolate syrup into each cone. Swirl around until the inside of each cone is evenly coated and then place cones in freezer. Place cool whip and pudding in small dish and stir. Chill dish in freezer for 45 minutes to an hour until mousse is ice cold and set, but not fully frozen. Spoon mousse into and on top of cone. If desired, top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Yum! And only 84 calories and 1 gram of fat!

The pacifier is our best friend. I know that one day I will regret this but for right now, it's the number one trick in my box.
Scowling....again. I promise..she does smile once in a while. Come on over to our house anytime between 7 and 8am and you're sure to catch a few.
And so the dress up begins...and out comes the bottom lip.
This lasted about 2.5 seconds.
I can't help but laugh at this pic. Poor baby.
Dad on pacifier duty while taking in the US Open.
Driving home from my parents, she was screaming bloody murder....not having anything to do with the pacifer, I desperately gave her my finger and she wouldn't let me move it for the rest of the drive home. It was cracking me up.

Tonight we got to hang out with our new neighbors, Justin, Suzanne, and Julianne who just recently moved three houses down. We are so lucky to have them so close! The adults got to enjoy some great food and wine, and two year old Julianne was a natural babysitter...her hourly rate was really great compared to the older ones. I'll have to keep her on speed dial.
Addison loved looking at her new friend, and Julianne was awesome with pacifier duty!
Ok, so I know it's been forever since I updated and I've been terrible about taking pictures. Addison is changing every day and she's just getting so big! I didn't even realize it until I started looking back at pictures from just a few weeks ago...it's hard to believe.

Sam WANTED to babysit. How sweet is that? Sam and Sheila are expecting their first bambino in November and we are all super excited for them. I decided if Sam really wanted to Addison would be good practice, right? He did such an amazing job and when I got home after a wonderful night out with girls, he had her asleep in his arms. Way to go Sam! So much thanks to both you and Sheila. Addison and I were so appreciative.
