1 year old!

*I have no words for what happened in Boston yesterday. I hugged my family close last night and said prayers for my friends who were in Boston and are safe. My thoughts, prayers and heartfelt sympathy is with everyone who is affected by the events in Boston yesterday. *

One year ago today at 5:29am our world changed forever by an 8#13oz baby boy.


I could have never imagined the journey he would take us on this first year. And I wouldn’t change a minute of any of it. Happy 1st Birthday to my baby boy!


New things this month:

walking! everywhere!

saying mama and dada

using baby sign language – mostly “more”

how to use a straw –> and loves Panera smoothies as much as Mom and Dad!

sippy cups!

likes to hear how loud he can be (especially in the grocery store!)

figured out how to crawl into the bathtub

loves throwing things away. . . earlier this week I found him in the laundry room putting everything into the trash can –>shoes, dirty clothes, mittens. . .

loves to give things to you – he spent an entire morning, just bringing me one toy after another

loves to play on Abby’s dog bed

started throwing food over the side of his highchair tray

starting to test boundaries. ..  touches something he knows he’s not supposed to and looks to see if we are watching. ..

took his first road trip to WY

had his first Easter

had his 1st birthday party!!


Continues to hate

ear drops
getting told no
being tired
getting his diaper changed
putting on lotion


Looking forward to many more birthdays with this little boy!

  1. Happy Birthday Luke! Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful things he’s doing and learning. This post is exactly what we need after a tough week! Children embody all the promise and hope and sweet innocence that make life so good.

    My youngest is turning 1 next Thursday, and I’m so excited to celebrate! BTW, she HATES to have her diaper changed too and LOVES to feed our dog from her high chair tray.
