Thanks for swinging by....

Lucas' had his 1st Birthday party on August 20th and the theme was Sock Monkey! I don't know why I have been obsessed with Sock Monkey's before this little man was born. His first Sock Monkey was from his Aunt Aleisha she gave it to him at the hospital.

First Birthday

This sad face was the result of 3 shots at this 1 year checkup. It was so sad to hold him down with his arms across his chest while the nurse stuck him with 3 different shots. I watch his eyes swell up with big tears and then start crying the saddest cry. Theses are the days that its hard to be a mom and watch your child go through pain.

1 Year Stats:

Weight: 22.8 lbs (50%)
Height: 30.25 (65%)
Head: 48 cm (89%)

By the time I got home I had a sleeping baby.

Lucas' actual birthday on August 18th I got to wake up to this face happy face. I think he knew it was a special day!!!

I made him some yummy waffles with strawberries for breakfast.

Grandma & Grandpa Rennaker gave Lucas a cool activity walker.
That night we went to Tucanos the best Brazilian grill around. Aunt Aleisha came with us and got mistaken for Aaron's date, what a cute couple.
Lucas was my date!

Taking after his mommy and eating the best cheese rolls around!
We went to build-a-bear after dinner and Aaron let Lucas build a birthday monkey

Lucas thought his monkey was pretty cool and cuddled all the way home with it.

Happy Birthday Lucas!!!
