- Watching the monkey and frog move on her crib soother
- The one-on-one attention at diaper changes
- Her binky and her bottle
- Putting anything and everything into her mouth
- Pulling her fuzzy blanket up to her cheeks
- Bouncing and singing on daddy's knee
And here are six things Brian and I LOVE about our little Allison
- She sleeps at least 10 hours at night before waking up to eat
- Her giggles
- She loves to nurse
- She gets so excited when her daddy comes home
- The yummy sounds she makes when she gets to eat
- Her huge, gorgeous smiles
Happy half birthday, munchkin!!!

BBQ Chicken Soup
1 chicken breast
1/2 cup frozen corn
2-4 cups chicken stock (depending on number of desired servings)
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce (or just use BBQ Baked Chicken)
1-2 ounces cream cheese, milk or cream
Put chicken breast, BBQ sauce and stock in pot. Bring to a simmer. Add in corn and return to a simmer. Add cream cheese, milk or cream (optional... makes it yummy and creamy!) and return to simmer(I melted in cream cheese).
So easy, so yummy... this would also be really good with black beans in it too I think.

I would do a left overs night, but those usually get eaten for lunches. I suppose if I rearranged things I could also have an Italian/Pasta night... maybe next month! Hopefully this will be something that works for me. I would call it a new year's resolution, but we all know what happens to those.

She also LOVED trying to open her gifts and LOVED all the paper. Allison had her own special method of gift opening... not very effective, but she sure tried hard!
