Can it be true?!

My baby is officially 1, and almost walking!  In the last week there have been two parties, lots of ice cream and cupcakes, many cards, special times with friends and family, climbing and taking steps on his own.  It seems unreal that Lucas is actually one already.  This was definitely the fastest year of my life.  It has been a year of many challenges but also many joys and blessings.  It's hard to put into words all my thoughts and feelings when thinking about Lucas and his first year.  Life definitely would not feel complete without him and it's hard to remember what our family was like without him in it.  He is the opposite of his older brother in almost every way.  He is a great sleeper and eater.  He's a cuddle bug, very happy, and mostly pretty calm.  He's into everything and hates being told "No".  He will let you know when he's not happy but calms down quickly.  He's a momma's boy and enjoys watching his big brother.  I look forward to continuing to watch him grow and change over the next year...but it could slow down a bit!!

Here are more birthday celebration pictures...

Since Lucas was sick at her first party we decided to wait to do cake until his birthday.  He dug in but really wasn't a big fan.  I don't think he liked the sticky mess on his hands.

 He sure knew how to make a mess!

Party #2 at Grandma Liz's house with friends and family.  Uncle Jon and Aunt Rach from Colorado even go to celebrate with us! :)

 Silly big brother, Nolan

 He enjoyed the cupcake a lot more this time! 

 Special guests, Mary and Emery (my "Indiana grandparents")

Reading one of his new books with Uncle Jon.
