quick and easy, but oh so cute, baby gift

Our neighbors' daughter had a baby girl yesterday so my daughter and I wanted to make her something. We ran out to JoAnn Fabrics and picked up some Gerber onsies and some adorable iron-on transfers. The transfers had words under the drawings but I wasn't thrilled with the fonts, so I cut them off and just went with the cute illustrations.

Within 15 minutes we had made these three adorable outfits. Perfect for the crazy heat wave we are experiencing in the Northeast.

Then we made this...

Out of this world chocolate chip ice cream.

1 c. whole milk
3/4 c. granulated sugar
2 c. heavy cream
1-2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

Using a whisk, mix whole milk and granulated sugar together for 1 minute or until sugar is melted. Add cream and vanilla to taste. Poor into an electric ice cream maker (we have a Cuisinart). Turn on ice cream maker and allow to mix for 25 minutes. Add chocolate chips and allow to mix for 3-5 more minutes or until the mixture looks ready.
