Happy 1st Birthday Lane!

Words really cannot express how much having you has changed mine and your daddy's lives! You have brought us so much joy, laughter, and love. From the minute I saw you, I knew my life would never be the same! We have loved every minute watching you grow up and discover and learn new things. You are such a sweet and funny little guy, but you are also definitely developing your own little personality! I can't wait to see what the future holds for you! I love you sweet boy!

Here are some pics of Lane this morning before heading off to daycare. He is all ready to go in his little Birthday Boy shirt! Such a sweet smile

Me and my one year old this morning, silly smile!
Tonight we decided to take Lane to Chuck-E-Cheese in honor of his birthday! So we headed over and met my grandma, aunt Terry and Bre and Garrett for some fun. Lane had a blast. He rode rides, played, walked around looking at everything going on around him, and even saw Chucky! No cake today though, we will save that for his party! He definitely wore himself out b/c on the way home he crashed! Here are lots of pics from tonight!

Lane and Chucky

"Who is this guy?"

"I'm being brave! "

Family shot!

Oh I almost forgot...Lane had his 12 month well check today also, busy day for a little guy! Here are his stats at one year...
Weight: 20 lbs. 8 oz.
Length: 28 in.
Head Circumference: 18
Doc said he is in great health. A little underweight but not too concerned. Our main goal right now is to increase his solid food intake. He is almost completly off bottles. We are only giving him the bottle when he wakes up and at night, otherwise its his sippy. He got three shots. Paul said he cried but quickly settled. He even got to pick a toy from the box for being a good boy!
Here are some other "stats" about Lane at one year...
-He loves his whole milk. A big amen to no more formula!!!!!!!
-He still is an AVID PACI sucker! I dread the day when he have to break him from that!!
-He loves to watch Noggin, Blues and the Backyardigans are his favorites.
-His favorite foods right now include applesauce, eggs, toast with jelly, any kind of bread, lima beans, chicken, rice, and his Puffs.
-Says mama and dadda on occasion.
-Is starting to imitate sounds we make.
-Loves to be outside.
-Want to walk everywhere on his own!
I am looking forward to my mom and both my sisters coming in on Friday! I love having them here. Countdown is on to party time!

On this night a year ago...

I was in labor!! Man it's so crazy to think that a whole year, to the day, has gone by already! Lane was scheduled to be induced on the 27th, but had other plans and on the 24th, he started coming our way!

This was the last picture of me preggo with was Easter, two days before I went into labor! My sweet little cousin Jared was so excited for Lane's arrival!And this was me and Paul, during the wee hours of the 25th waiting anxiously for Lane to make his debut! I was feeling great at this point, just a little nervous, scared, and excited all at the same time!
Tomorrow my sweet boy will turn ONE years old! I have mixed emotions about that fact!! Daddy will be taking him to his one year old appointment, so I will post back tomorrow! We are also going to be taking him somewhere special tomorrow night....check back then!

A Whole New View!

Look what Lane got today....a new ride!! Yep, our little one is 21 lbs. and almost a year, so we thought it's about time to turn him around! Now he can face either Paul or myself and see a whole new side of riding in the car! And I'm sure it'll be easier for us to see him! We didn't take him for a ride yet, but we did put him in it! "This is new!"
Yes, he is pantless....thanks to his daddy!

My big boy! And his new scrunched up nose smile!

Catching up

Wow, this week is already almost to an end. It has flown by! I am not quite ready to go back to school but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have been out of town for the first half of the week and didn't get a chance to post, so I am catching up on some events! Scroll down or just click below!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Well this was Lane's first St. Patrick's Day! Like all other holidays, he had no clue! Oh well! It's also my Spring Break this week, yea! Paul had to work so I headed down to Waco to spend a couple of days with the family. The day before I left Lane developed his very first ear infection which equals a very fusy baby. So needless to say my break hasn't been all the relaxing! But it was great to have help during the days with little man. Most of the time though he was all smiles and enjoying playing with the kiddos! Here is Lane on St. Patty's Day, (we went to eat lunch with Haley and Jared).

Me, Jared and LaneJared, Lane and my nana! Not sure about that hair boy!?
Haley and Lane, sweet little face!

He found 'em!

Yep, he has discovered a whole new place to play.....the kitchen cabinets! Thursday night I was making dinner and I think Paul may have opened one of them for some reason and sure enough next thing you know Lane went over and opened it right on up! Luckily it was the one that houses all the tupperware, so I let him have a grand ole time! Today though we headed to Target to get some cabinet locks....I think I'll keep this one open so it can occupy him when we are cooking!

This is daddy's (OK mine too) new toy! Last weekend we got a Wii, and it has consumed our nights after Lane goes down! It's taking us right back to the old Nintendo days!! I'm sure Paul will start playing new games eventually, but for right now it's all Mario Brothers!! Anyway, I've been joking with Paul telling him he'll have Lane playing along with him very soon, and by the looks of this pic I may be right!

"Sweet move dad!"

Have I mentioned that I am officially on SPRING BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?WOO-HOO!!
Oh and in 11 days my precious little baby will turn ONE!! :( Sad day to realize your baby is not really a baby anymore.

Girls Night Out!

Last night, me and a group of girls from school, Stephanie, Dawn, Carie, and Rachel, had an official "Girls Night Out"! We had a blast. After school we headed over to On the Border for dinner and drinks, then we went to this fun place in Flower Mound called Color Me Mine. It it a place where you can make your own pottery, well paint it, no Ghost action going on=) Thursday's is Ladies Night, so we thought we would give it a try. It was so much fun! We came very unprepared, but hey it was our first time for all but one of us. Luckily, there was not anyone else there, so we had it to ourselves along with the high school worker girl, shout out Ashley, who helped us so much! All of our pieces turned out awesome! We will get them back next Tuesday, so I'll post a picture of the final outcomes! Overall it was a great night, it's so good to get out with friends, relax, talk and do something fun! We are going to try and make our little girls night out a monthly thing, whether it's back to pottery or something new each time! Here are some pics of our night... Did I mention it was BYOW!!??

Rachel sporting her OU spirit....BOO! But I must say her plate turned out awesome!

Workin' hard

Dawn's and mine matching paisley cute

Here is everyone's finished pieces....when they are burned the colors will be much brighter than what they are now! Not bad girls for our first time!!

What a "Show"

Being a Bachelor watcher, I simply cannot go without something being said about last night!! Crazy huh! I was one who found out about this little "plot" a while back because I couldn't hold out, and I kept thinking maybe its not true, there's no way Jason could be that mean....but oh no, he is! So for what it's worth here are my thoughts....Jason is a huge jerk, I feel bad for Melissa, and shame on Molly for taking a guy like that back. But then again, I think she was in on it as well! Anyway I think ABC pulled a fast one over everyone and had this planned down to the minute!! Oh well...
Moving the new Jodi Picoult book came out, Handle with Care! I am a huge Picoult fan and read all her books, well almost all of them! I look forward to reading this one!
Lane finally cut those two teeth...thank goodness, and has been a much more pleasant baby! In the past couple of days he has taken some pretty nasty falls, both of which have resulted in some blood loss, which mama can't handle!
I leave you with these of my little guy......
Happy Lane loving his bath....Unhappy Lane, mad at mommy for making him get out!
