A Onederful First Year!

Today you are one year old! While some days certainly seemed a lot longer than others, one year never went by faster!

One year old. Wow!!

Looking back on all of your monthly milestones, I am in awe. You have grown so much, learned more than I ever thought you would and are becoming your very own little wonderful person full of character and charm.

Like every other month, this was a big one full of lots of firsts; like:
  • Visiting Legoland
  • Graduating from your second Kindermusik class
  • Graduating from wearing the Doc Band (read all about our experience here)
  • Sitting forward in the car!!
  • Knowing where your belly, head and toes are
  • Picking your lovey and a favorite little stuffed monkey out from a pile of several other things
  • Can follow simple commands like, 'go get it' and 'put this in there'... we are still working on 'no' and 'don't touch that'
  • When asked a 'who', 'what', 'where', 'when', or 'why' question, shrug your shoulders and turn your hands up. This is the most adorable thing I have ever seen a toddler do!
  • Developed a love affair with every household appliance we own... hence the reason to learn the word 'no'!
  • Attended two more birthday parties (for a grand total of six in just your first year of life!)
  • Your eyes are still blue and I think it's safe to say that they are going to stay that way. :)
We celebrated your special day yesterday at home with a BBQ, balloons, cupcakes and plenty of gifts. Your two aunts and grandparents came to visit and it was a lot of fun.

I will never forget the day you were born and how I held you in my arms until the sun came up, just staring at you in complete adoration. What a great day. Happy Birthday, son. I love you.

Your destiny is waiting and the best is always yet to be.

Tonya, I cannot believe it's already been a year...I remember getting the FB message that Lucas was born like it was yesterday. I'm so glad he enjoyed his big day!

This post made me tear up. It's such a sweet one. I think it might be one of my Letters for Lucas favorites!

Hey Lucas! I'm so happy I got to meet you during your first year! You're a fabulous little boy. Your blue eyes are gorgeous (thank you Mommy!) and you're a lovely little person. I enjoyed every minute I spent with you during your stay here and hope, that one day soon, I'll get to see you again soon.
I love your new car. I can't wait to see more photos! You look really happy little fellow, and you have the best family ever!
You'll enjoy the coming year as much as you enjoyed the first!
Congratulations to Mommy (and Daddy of course)! You're such a "love face"! Miss you xoxo
