Fab Five Friday Foto(s) of zee Birthday Boy

Today, my precious wittle Lucas Nathan turns one. How I love this wee child. He is such a tremendous blessing to me; I can't even begin to describe it. When I gave birth to Lucas, God knew I desperately needed an easy baby after such a painful pregnancy, and that is exactly what I received. God is good. All the time, folks. A few other items I've been reflecting upon:

1) I have lost 45 lbs. over this past year. YES.
2) After I had Lucas, I decided to become an optimist. Yes; it's a decision, and you know what? I have never been so content and balanced before in my entire life. So how's that for taking a stand for optimists everywhere?

And now....

My beautiful boy.

And now, if you would excuse me, I need a box of Kleenex and a newborn to sniff. Happy Father's Day to all of you menfolk out there! Eat some baby-back ribs, delight in your wife, and wrestle your kids.


  1. Wow! A year already? Time flies. What a precious cutie!

  2. First of all, I can't believe he's ONE already. Happy Birthday Lucas!
    Second 45 lbs! Is that pre or post pregnancy loss? Wow. Next time I see you I'll divulge my loss....

  3. Thanks for the advice. I can't quite wrestle with Eliana yet, but sometimes she kicks me in the face if I'm not careful.

  4. Rachel, it most definitely POST-pregnancy weight loss!
    Ben- Thank you for making me laugh. :)
