Well, actually CeCe's birthday is tomorrow, but we had all the festivities this weekend. All of her grandparents were able to make the trek for her party which probably meant a lot more to Julie and I than her, but she was happy nonetheless. She got to stick her fingers into her cake and yes, she likes cake. And ice cream. I guess the apple doesn't fall that far from the tree. Julie decorated the cake which was in the shape of an elephant. When I get the pictures off the camera, I will post them. CeCe wasn't too concerned about the presents though - not nearly as into that part of the party as her sisters and cousin. They were all over that.
It's hard to believe a whole year has passed already. At this time a year ago, Julie and I were anxiously awaiting the arrival of her parents, so that we could go to the hospital. The got here around midnight and CeCe was born by three. It was a little closer than we had planned. That was the beginning of my parental leave -37 weeks at home with all my girls that I will be eternally grateful for. It had it's moments, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Ginny is still not that comfortable with the whole pooping thing. She finally went Thursday evening and now hasn't gone since. She's starting to look like its uncomfortable and now she's getting a cold again. She's been coughing quite a bit this evening. It can't be easy to keep that sucked in there while you're coughing like that. I don't envy her that feeling. It'll come I guess, one way or another.
Speaking of Ginny, we tell her that she need to listen to her body when she has to go to the bathroom. It's actually a saying we picked up from 'The bear in the big blue house.' He's pretty smart that bear. Anyway, she says this quite often - Dee gets quite a kick out of it when Ginny says that her body is telling her she has to pee. This evening though, she started to use this logic to play me. She was procrastinating going to bed, like usual and wanting one more drink of water. After several strong no's by me, she said, "Dad, my body is telling me I'm thirsty." Nice try.
Jorja is so close to losing her first tooth. Most of her friends have lost some already it seems, but she's hanging on. One is literally hanging on by a thread though. It's driving Julie nuts I think. She is always wanting to wiggle it and pull on it. Jorja lets her for a bit, and then has enough. It won't be long now though.
I guess I should get to bed now. Another work week awaits. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not, but every day when I get to Dee's house to pick up the girls they ask me what kind of beer I tested that day. That just seems odd coming out of a two year old. Anyway, on that note I'm off. Later.
