Happy 1st Birthday, Cassandra!

Today was our baby girl's first birthday! It's so hard to believe! I remember this day like it was yesterday, and to think it was a year ago already is just insane!

I took the day off of work today to spend it with my sweetheart. Even though she doesn't know the difference, I do! It's such a bitter sweet day when your baby turns one. So happy they are growing, happy,and healthy, but at the same time sad to see your baby gone. I had a few moments of tearing up throughout the day, but lots of happy moments too!!

Avery went to daycare like normal. Cassandra ended up taking a really long late morning nap from 11-1!  She got up and we had lunch then it was off to run some errands. We picked up some cupcakes for her birthday treat then went to Babies R Us to buy a shower gift. Then we picked up Avery a littler earlier than normal.  Came home and played until Gabe came home from work.

After dinner, it was time to sing!  This is the face she gave me when she saw the camera come out...silly girl!
Then she broke out a silly smile!
The girls posing before we sang-yep, Cass is mesmorized by the cupcake!
Singing "Happy Birthday":
Cassandra's special cupcake (got it here):
Then the fun began and we let her dig in! She was so excited when we put it in front of her, but wasn't quite sure what to do either!
Then she discovered the frosting and had fun with it! I tried giving her pieces of the cake and she wanted nothing to do with it....just like Avery!

After we got them cleaned up, we let Cassandra open her gift from us.
The girls and I
I was surprised that Cassandra actually was ripping the paper! At Christmas she was clueless and did nothing...but today she was helping!

Checking out her new books:
And her big gift-the Little People Pirate Ship!
We let them play with it a few minutes, then it was off to bed for both of them! It was such a fun, special day!

Happy 1st Birthday Cassandra! We love you so much!!
