One Year

Lucas turned one year old on November 1st. I laid him down in his crib on the 31st with a heavy heart. I kissed him good night, put him in his crib, closed his door knowing that in the morning I would have a one year old. I shed a few tears, but also felt some excitement at the upcoming year in Lucas' life. The first year of his little life has gone by so quickly. It has been challenging, a huge adjustment, but also probably the best and most rewarding year of my life. It's hard to believe that he hasn't been with us forever. He is such a good easy going little guy. Even when he was a baby he would only ever cry if he was hungry or tired. He has such a good attitude and just rolls with the punches even when he's sick or teething. He is sweet and so much fun. He loves people, especially other babies and kids, and warms up to other adults very quickly. He is busy busy and into everything. He has to explore every nook and cranny anywhere he goes, which keeps both Caleb and I on our toes. I feel so grateful to be able to call him mine.
To start off his birthday we took him to a new play place by our house called Tommy K Play. It was nice and clean as it was brand new, and he loved it. They had a toddler area for him to play in. We also took him into the bigger kid area...I went in and lasted for about a minute because I was way too clausterphobic in there! Caleb was a good Dad and played with him in it.

After the play place we went home for a nap and dinner. We were excited to give Lucas his birthday cupcake afterwards. He  hadn't really had any sugar up to this point, so I was excited to see how he would react. Also a little weirded out that because he turned one I was supposed to load him up on sugar?? haha.
He loved having us sing Happy Birthday to him, but he wasn't into the cupcake at all. He just played with it for a while. I don't think he liked the feeling of the icing. He eventally ended up getting some icing in his mouth, and he didn't look overly impressed by it. I ripped off a piece of cupcake and put it in his mouth so he knew what to do with it...again he didn't really care. Which was fine by me. :)

Then he got to open presents from Mom and Dad. While I was in Montana I bought him a little school bus, and an Alphabet toy that spins. He LOVES the bus. It was a good purchase. (Thanks Ashley for talking me out of the other ridiculously expensive toy I was thinking of buying) He likes taking the people out of the bus and putting them back in. So fun to watch.

Lucas you are so special to us. I can't describe how much I love you and love being your Mother. You are so fun, happy, and sweet. I hope you always stay that way. This past year has flown by, and although it's sad, it's also so exciting to see you develop and grow and learn. You make my life so much fun. I love you my little Lucas Lee.

Wow, 1 already? Congrats to all three of you!. I really feel that the first birthday is as much of a celebration for the little one as it is for the parents for getting through that first year. It only becomes more fun from here on. Enjoy every second!
