LUCAS | Mickey Mouse 1st Birthday

It's official! Our sweet, little boy is no longer a baby... And he certainly has made no secret of his transformation into a toddler. Bumps, bruises, and reckless bravery are all alive and well in this house! But that constant smile cannot be denied--- it's what makes him our Lucas.

I wish I could say that this "small, simple" party went off without a hitch, but, well... It didn't.

With all of the hustle and bustle trying to get everything ready, Lucas wasn't as closely supervised around the furniture as he usually is (not that it matters, most of the time)... So, we ended up with a face-plant into the coffee table. And then, five minutes later... Another face-plant into the coffee table. The complimentary bruise and swelling on his nose told us that it would probably be a good idea to get a few photos of the birthday boy before blood was drawn.

There's just never a dull moment with our rough and rowdy guy!

 Big Sis was on hand to offer some hugs and love.
My favorite thing in the world is watching them together. :)

 We were lucky enough to get some photos with Dad & Mom too. Our little man doesn't like to stay in one place for very long-- the classic symptom of toddlerhood.

Unfortunately, this is the only photo of the cake. ;) 
After working for hours on it, I completely forgot to snap a photo 
before turning it over for the smashing!

 Big Sis helps.

After cleaning up a bit, it was time to bring out his birthday gift.
This was his reaction when he saw it...
 I think he might have been a little excited. ;)

In true Lucas-fashion, he found the most dangerous way out...
He also tried to sneak out of the bottom a couple of times! Crazy boy.

happy 1st birthday, lucas!
you have brought so much joy into our lives, and also a little fear, but we couldn't imagine our life without you in it. you will forever be our sweet and fearless baby boy.
