last one

All the birthdays in the family are over for the year. Phew. We've had plenty of cake here and wherever we went over the past 2 weeks.

We had a party over the long weekend for Lucy and Alli turning one. Rhonda and her mom made the CUTEST cakes ever. (I even made cupcakes today and had the neighbors kids over to decorate and blow out candles for the FINAL party, no more, PLEASE) Honestly, the picture doesn't do the cake justice. Thank you 100 times Rhonda for probably the fanciest cake Alli will ever have for her birthday, unless we do a double again...

Lucy and Alli both got little walker toys so they will hurry up and walk!

Alli really enjoyed her first bite of cake as you can see. She ate her piece so fast and then tried to Lucy's.

(WARNING! a little bit of sentimental mom coming up)
I can't believe it has been a year. She was so little, and I was certain, I was having a boy. Right when she was born and the doctor said it's a girl, I thought they were all playing a joke on me. I really REALLY thought she would be a girl. Then the nurse asked what her name would be. I said I have no idea, I thought I would have was a boy. Looking back I have no idea why I thought that. (Now all I want is girls!) I couldn't be happier. Sure she makes me run crazy some days, but I wouldn't want it any other way. And what do you know, she is squirming around in her crib, so I better go before she wakes and makes me crazy! But here she is, one year ago. They grow up so fast...sigh...

I'll repeat myself for like the 100th time - I can't believe it has been a whole year! She is such a doll. Funny how you say you can't imagine not having a little girl - I feel the same way about having a boy!
