Happy cupcake Friday!!!

At least that's what it is at our house. The girls and I made cupcakes together -- from start to finish -- for the first time. And they did great!!!! It was fun 'yelling' at them for tasting the batter, frosting and sprinkles. They knew I was not really yelling at them and then they kept doing it. They are so cute. Below are some pictures of my little bakers in action. And aren't these the best looking cupcakes ever?!?!?!? They are growing up so fast. I can't believe they will both be 3 this year.

Some other news and tidbits:

Cassie's lip is doing great. We are back to our normal routines and even normal sleeping -- which is wonderful!!!! We go back for our 5 week after surgery check-up this Thursday. Most of the swelling is gone and there is just one stitch left on the inside. This stitch is also bothering Cassie so we'll ask the dr about it.

Both girls are now sleeping in the same room 98% of the time for naps. I moved both toddler beds into the room with the crib and we'll be redecorating that room into the princess-ballerina room. Having a princess-ballerina room makes all the difference to almost 3 year olds. Chloe is still napping in her crib with the crib-tent but I'm hoping that soon we'll be able to trust her in her toddler bed.

The girls are just about in the same size clothes now. Chloe is too big for her 18-24 month clothes now and 2T's are just a tiny bit big on her and 2T's just fit Cassie. This will make life easier for me that they will be able to wear the same size this summer. And in shoes they are only one size apart.

One year ago today we arrived back home as a family of 4! Wow, it's already been a year. And man oh man have my girls changed this past year.

Tomorrow we have another dentist appt -- try number 2 -- for Chloe's crowns. I'm really hoping we can get them done tomorrow. Every night poor little Chloe complains that her teeth hurt. She's so good about taking her meds -- even yucky oral-gel.

That's about all that's going on here. Oh, one more thing -- Chloe's now at a 27 month level for her speech -- making her only about 5 months behind!!!! I'm so proud of her.
