Caycee's birthday

I can't believe Caycee is a year old already. It makes me think about Justin a lot, too. I think (unfortunately) Caycee's birthday will always make me think of his deployment because it was the weekend before she was born that he came back with the news that he was being deployed. It was really stressful on me, so I can't imagine what it was like for Dayna, especially since she was days away from having Caycee.
Anyway, my mom came into town yesterday and spent some time with me and Cooper. Cooper loved it and I got to take a nap! :) Before she came over Cooper was exploring and discovered the file drawer. My impulse was to pull him away, but I decided to let him play and just watch. Of course it didn't go well. Just after I took this picture he leaned forward, closing his fingers in the drawer. Luckily he didn't hurt himself too bad and got over it pretty quickly.

I'm ready for my job at Decorative!

Last night we went over to Dayna's for pizza and cake. Caycee loved her cake, of course, and Zak (or "Joe" as he calls himself) loved "helping" with the cake and presents. Cooper did his fair share of helping too (not with the cake because I'm a little crazy about what he eats and won't let him have sugar yet!), but mostly just with pushing over the toys.
I took a bazillion pictures (okay, it was really only 115) so it's hard choosing which ones to put here.

The before picture - classic Caycee with her Cindy-Lou-Who pigtails & a crazy face

Yep, that's a whole scoop of ice cream she's holding

Getting serious about eating that cake

After - the sugar high

That cake made me thirsty!
