I can no longer call them babies

One of the great things about living close to family, combined birthday parties!! Michelle made this AMAZING train that the kids eventually tore apart...and had a blast!
After almost 7 hours of work, the cake turned out pretty good. And I have to give all credit to Jessica, who is always just an e-mail away for advice!
Carter sat nicely and picked away at his cake.
Jimmy & Carter waited for us to stop singing to blow out their candles, but Cooper was too impatient.
Cooper crawled across the table and blew out Carter's candle for him...twice.

I still can't believe I have 2 year olds! So, instead of calling them "the babies" I'll have to go against all the research on twins and call them "the boys." They are so immensely different. Cooper's vocabulary is growing everyday and he loves to play and entertain himself. Carter is now saying "ball" and "more" and focuses his energy on snuggling whenever he can. They are turning into little boys, and it's great to see their little personalities emerge more and more each day.

Both the boys have been clinging to hubby since he got home, and many hours have been spent outside enjoying the new warmer weather. The hubby has finally signed into the post here, so know I'm left waiting (and a little worried) to get back into the normal Army life. Although I know there will be drama, I look forward to meeting other Army Wives, and getting plenty of material for my blog ;o)

I call mine "the boys" too. I think they'll be okay. :)

The cake looks GREAT! I think I'm going to do a bus cake for my boys here in a few weeks since they both LOVE buses. I wonder how long it will be until they each want their own cake. . .

I just can hardly believe they're two years old! What sweet little boys you have there, and that was one heck of a party!

I think they will always been your babies. :)


Thank you for sharing the train birthday of "the boys" I can't believe how much they have changed and I definitely cannot believe they are 2.
