Sweets Candy Company

Yesterday Addy and I went to Sweets Candy Company with a play group that I joined a few months ago. We got to tour the factory and it was so much fun! We all had to wear hair nets, even the babies. Addy was sooo cute with her little hair net on (her hair net was actually a beard net! ha). She was really good about wearing it too. She didn't even try to pull it off. It was fun and interesting to see how they make salt water taffy, cinnamon bears, jelly beans, sour stars, and chocolate covered candies. Addy was great through most of the tour and very vocal. She jabbered the WHOLE time! Maybe to the point where it was a little distracting. She just has so much personality. I am constantly laughing about the little things she does, and I just can't get over how darn cute she is! I know I'm biased! She has been very sensitive to sudden loud noises lately so she did cry big crocodile tears when a crate or something was dropped. Oh, and when a cute little boy from play group squealed happily. The thing I don't get is that she makes those noises ALL OF THE TIME! She can dish it out, but I guess she can't take it. Anyway, we sampled some of the candy while we were on the tour and then at the end they have a shop where you can buy candy. Of course I bought a big bag of taffy and some chocolate covered cinnamon bears for mom. They have some great new flavors like Moose Munch(chocolate, caramel and popcorn flavors), chocolate chip cookie dough and huckleberry. If you are ever in Salt Lake, Sweets Candy is a fun place to visit!

Addy at 7 1/2 months

Addy is 7 1/2 months old now and changing every day. She seams to learn something new each day and she really zeros in on her new discovery and practices over and over again until she finds something else to do that's even more interesting. Here is a little list of things that you may or may not know about Addy:
* Addy loves to smack her lips(her most recent trick).
* I don't know how or where she learned this, but she thinks it pretty cool to let her drool go all the way to her chin (sometimes further!) and then suck it up really fast!
* She likes to stick her tongue out.
* She LOVES to go to the pool and take baths (I sill need to get a picture of her at the pool).

* I often catch her fake coughing.
* The remote is her favorite toy.
* She can eat a handful of those little puff cereal things in like two minutes and she is now an expert at picking them up with her pointer and thumb finger.
* She thinks peek-a-boo is the greatest game. Last night she pulled the burp cloth off her face so excitedly that she scratched her face!

* Her first tooth just broke through today!
* Every now and then I get a big, slobbery kiss on the cheek (she's actually been doing this for a little while)
*Last of all, she LOVES to stand with the help of mom or dad. If your hands are within reach, she will use them to pull herself up!
