Lucky Bill’s First* Halloween

*Technically, this is Lucky Bill’s second Halloween, but honestly, I was still trying to adjust to parenthood last Halloween so we skipped it. To make up for it, this year I put quite a bit of effort in and made our costumes so we could go as the Super Readers from the AWESOME educational PBS show Super Why! Super Why! happens to be the one character/tv show Lucky has shown quite a bit of interest in, so we went with it. He giggled the moment he put his costume on. I am not sure if he recognized the Super Why! costume or if he just thought the cape was funny. Lucky celebrated with his other baby friends and enjoyed some sugary treats that I do not normally let him have. He stayed up way past bedtime and played all evening…needless to say he slept like a baby (hehe) and even let his mom and dad sleep in the next morning ❤ All in all it was a success!


Lucky Bill Goes to Virginia

This past summer was full of adventure for Lucky Bill! In September he went on his second trip to visit grandparents in Virginia. Lucky was spoiled to bits and had a blast on his first visit to an amusement park, the Virginia Beach Aquarium and the beach. We also had our first experience with removing sand from every square inch of his body including his eyes, he got to feel the water on his toes and watch the surfers, seagulls, and fishermen from the pier. Then back to grandma and grandpas for more spoiling. It was a fun Adventure and we are looking forward to it all again this Christmas!

Lucky Bill Turns One!!

A couple weekends ago Lucky Bill turned BIG NUMERO UNO! We celebrated with a circus theme (see invites here) and Lucky was our little strongman.

It was a fantastic day! Two sets of grandparents traveled 400 miles or more to join in on the fun, lots of baby friends came to play, and we all filled our bellies with Puff Corn, cake, and candy.

Lucky Bill’s First Photo

This is THE VERY first picture taken of my baby (and a few short minutes later our nurse would coin the name ‘Lucky Bill’). The very second I heard him cry my heart overflowed with love and I knew in that moment I would do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING for that baby.  Nearly a one year later, countless sleepless nights, and several hundred…possibly thousand dirty diapers I still feel the same. (Mushy huh?)
