Wow! How did my little boy turn ONE? Time flies by so fast, I have absolutely loved being this little guy's mom. Kelly Anne took these amazing pictures of Lucas. She never disappoints!

Lucas had some milestones this last month
* Pulled himself up to his feet on July 19th
* First haircut on August 2nd
* Walking with a walker toy August 14th
* Finally said mama August 15th
* This last weekend Lucas constantly pulls himself up to his feet
* Going to church is hard for Lucas, all he wants to do is talk & crawl around
* He will eat just about anything you give him
* Favorite treat: Veggie Puffs made by Graduates
Lucas usually gets a cup of treats when I'm at the gym so I can workout
* He is a great sleeper 2 naps a day usually consists of 2 to 2 1/2 hours each
* Goes to bed between 8 and 9 because of the summer night
* Laughs all the time and is very interactive
* Has figured out an iPhone app game called Baby Fun
* Gets sucked in while watching Baby Einstein, it's teaching him sign language

Aaron and I agree that this has been the best year of our lives. It's the little things he does that bring us the most joy, the round smiling face that greets us when we wake him up in the morning, the excitement he gets from plucking on Dad's guitar strings, his playfulness and endless curiosity, mimicking our sounds and body gestures to see our reaction. I remember the rush of emotions I felt when I got to hold Lucas in the delivery room on August 18, 2010. One year later, it is still obvious that he is the best thing to happened to this family.
