She is capable of inhaling, exhaling and even crying. She is much stronger, and what once felt like little flutters are now strong bumps, kicks and rolls. She is particularly active at night between 9:30p-11:30p. I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

So, I ask you, what's a picture hungry, stir crazy parent to do?
Put daddy's mittens on the kid, bait her with my cell phone, and laugh our patooties off while she tried to pick it up off the floor.

These cookies are delicate, crispy, sweet and so good that they were gone before I could even drizzle them with chocolate. (As you can see above, they were gone before I could even snap a picture)
Chocolate & Coconut Lace Cookies
Source: Food Network - Giada De Laurentiis
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sweetened, flaked coconut
1/3 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (4-ounce) bar bittersweet chocolate, chopped
Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine sugar, coconut, melted butter, flour, vanilla, and salt.
Using a 1/2 ounce cookie scoop or a tablesppon scoop 6 balls of dough, 3 to 4 inches apart, on each baking sheet. Lightly flatten the tops of the dough. Cook until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the parchment paper, about 15 minutes.
Place the chocolate in a bowl and place over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Using a fork, drizzle the tops of the cookies with the melted chocolate. Freeze the cookies until the chocolate has set, about 5 minutes. Remove the cookies from the freezer and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Note: If the cookies have baked into one another, use a knife or metal spatula to separate the cookies then allow to cool

GO PACK, GO!
Lyvi has her Packer Gear ready to wear. Hubby's Packer Jersey and CheeseHead are ready and waiting. The signed Packalope picture is hanging in our living room ( I kid you not! Click Here if you are not sure what a Packalope is...you know you want to) and the Green Bay Blanket is freshly washed and ready for use.
Now all we need to do is fix a few munchies and watch Green Bay beat Pittsburgh!
