My Bday

My birthday was Monday, but we celebrated it on Saturday.  That morning we bought a jogging stroller (found on craigslist... it's super old-school, but I don't care).  We chilled the rest of the morning and then that afternoon we went to Pizza Pie Cafe (an all-you-can-eat pizza, pasta, and salad bar) with some family.  Then we came back to our apartment and had cake and ice cream.
Tyler made me this cake
I thought it was really yummy (even though Tyler didn't).  
It's a 4 layer chocolate cake with one layer of homemade butter cream frosting (it's the best frosting I've ever had) and two layers of strawberry filling.
As of yesterday I'm 25.  I don't feel any different, but I had a nice relaxing birthday.  Every time I talked to Tyler he wished me a happy birthday.
Danica was really good too.  She took two really good naps and was extra cuddly giving me dozens of hugs.  I loved it!  It was her birthday present for me.  :) I also went clothes/shoe shopping yesterday, which was nice.
Lately I've been super craving hamburgers, so last night Tyler went and got me Applebee's burger and fries while I put Dani to bed.  I have an awesome husband.  He'll do anything for me... any day of the year, but he always makes me feel extra special around my birthday!

She's had a birthday. Shout hurray!!

Our little Danica turned 1!
I can't believe how quickly time has flown by.
Think she's grown a little?
This is her when we brought her home from the hospital and then on her first bday

On the left is a onesie she wears now, and on the right is the onesie we took her home from the hospital in.  (And she was swimming in the onesie on the right)

We had two birthday parties for her (what a lucky duck!).  My parents were in town for one and Tyler's parents were in town for the other.
Here's (lots of) pictures from both.
I made Danica a skirt to wear at her birthday party 
(you can barely see it in the picture above)
I think it's cute :)
I also altered this shirt (that I got from the dollar store).  It was fun.
back to the parties....

Dani's personal monkey cake

The eyes were marshmallows, so she couldn't eat those... hence the missing eyes
But she dug into the rest

The cupcakes were for everyone else.

Miss Danica's stuffed monkey 
(she's loved this thing ever since she could hold it!)
That's where the theme started
...and we call her our "little monkey"
We also had banana splits, cookies, and cocoa rice krispie treats

Danica's hair is long enough for pigtails!  
We thought they made her look so much older!
What a cutie!
You can kind of see her teeth in this one.  
She has 4, with 2 more coming in right now.

Dani's learned to walk!
These are pictures on Danica's actual birthday,
August 2
Such a sweetheart and ball of energy!!!

I have lots of videos that I will post in the near future... 
Dani's waking up from her nap now, so I gotsta go! :)
