On Tuesday I realized that I had signed up to work on the boys 1st birthday! I was in Arizona visiting my dad when I signed up for shifts, and I had other things on my mind. I'm lucky that the schedule JUST came out, and my shift can be covered!!
Where did the last year go?? The boys are now 10 months old! Carter has been walking for about 2 weeks and Cooper is crawling just as fast as Carter. They both have their bottom 2 front teeth, and start smacking their lips whenever they see you have food.
So, initially I wasn't going to throw them a party. Honestly, they won't really remember, they don't really have friends, and all of our family lives hundreds of miles away. But, then I realized that we have great friends, that might as well be called family, around here. So I need some ideas.
Eric will have the day off, and I'll have the day off before. I'm still debating whether or not I want to make a cake, or just order one. I figure, either way, giving each boy their own cupcake will be the way to go! Also, a friend brought up a good point...don't go over board on their first birthday, or I'll be trying to out do it every year after :o)
So, any ideas???

They had a Ball two days before graduation, here is Sam (one of the amazing ladies I've had the chance of meeting) and me...Eric and I didn't get pictures because we're cheap, and I'm not loving how fat I still am.
Here is Eric after he was sworn in by his Bn Cmdr (who drove almost 4 hrs to be there!)
Eric's first salute by his buddy Kelly
Top 3 in the class
Eric receiving his award for being an all around pimp
I handed off the boys and ran over to get a decent picture of him after he sat down...everyone was staring at me but it's hard to take a picture while wrangling the twins!
Someone at work also said that I haven't posted any recent pictures of the boys, so for the "Carter & Cooper Fan Club" (coined by Kelly), your requests haven't fallen on deaf ears.
Carter caught in the act of making out with his reflection at Gavin Hall (military lodging), Ft. Benning.
Cooper crawling around
Carter LOVES bath time, crawling around the tub with the occasional splashing...it's hard to get a picture of Cooper in the tub because of all the splashing, I don't want to ruin my camera!
