Hey girls! Lucas had a fantastic birthday party! I had so much fun with all of it, but it was exhausting! Luckily he has amazing grandparents that love to help out, I don't know what I would do w/o them. It was a Halloween costume party with a pumpkin theme. Everyone looked so cute in their costumes, and I think his cake turned out really cute! I had a lot of fun with it, and will probably use fondant for lots of future cakes. Lucas didn't really know what to think of his cake and didn't really eat it. I was surprised, but it was also naptime by the time we had cake. Overall he did really well, though I think he was a little overwhelmed by all the people. Understandable! It was a beautiful day and it couldn't have been more perfect! Of course I am posting lots of pics for you, and eventually I will get around to putting even more on facebook. I'm leaving to pick the kids up early from the sitter in about 1/2 an hr so I can take them trick-or-treating. Lily is SOOOOO excited!
I also had Lucas' 1-year checkup today. He had lots of shots and they pricked his finger to check his hemoglobin and lead level, poor thing. But everything is going great! He is 21.5 lbs (between 25th% - 50th%) and he is 30 inches long (50th% - 75th%). Idk what his head was, but it was just under the 25th%. He showed off his walking skills for the doc, and he was very impressed with his vocabulary and says it's more on par w/ a 15 mo old.
Pic time! Sorry they're big, I don't feel like resizing them.

Sorry I don't have a lot of pics of Lucas by himself. He was really wanting to be held by someone (i.e. me) the whole day. But here he is playing with the workbench my parents got him:
Not sure of what to make of the cake:
And this is the only bite I'm going to take!
Thanks for sharing my birthday with me!!
