Pushing the Train

Today, Cason figured out how to walk behind his train. He’s been trying for a while but the train would get away from him.  Here is a little video.  He’d never walk far when the camera was out but he can go across the room.

Cason's First Easter

Since Easter is that one big holiday that isn't the same time every year so Cason turned 1 before he had his first Easter.
First Easter Basket
He spotted the goods and came "running"
Went straight for the peep
Then checked out the rest of the loot from the Easter Bunny.
Then we went to church and over to Grandmoo and Grandpoo's house for lunch.  Cason loves playing the piano and is tall enough to reach the keys on his own. 
We took a break to take family pictures
And back to the piano with Uncle Eric after lunch.

Cason’s First Birthday

A quick photo recap of Cason’s First Birthday.  It was a BEAUTIFUL day that started with an Easter Egg Hunt (more on that in another post).  The weather was perfect… not too hot and our guests were able to hang out and play outside.

He got a whole slew of awesome gifts but this one deserves some special recognition.  Uncle Eric made Cason his very own, personalized rocking horse!  Cason LOVES it!

And a look back at the past year:

At 1 year old, Cason is:

  • Cruising along the furniture
  • Walking behind push toys
  • Waving
  • Clapping
  • Eating anything and everything ... he's "like Mikey" and always cleans his plate.  Still loves bananas, carrots and yogurt but is really good about eating anything we give him.
  • "Talks" all the time -- He says "Dog" and lots of "Mamamama" and "Dadadada" but not really directed at us
  • Laughs a lot
  • Plays well independently but loves for us to play with him
  • Crawls all over the place
  • Love pulling out the safe cooking utensils I have in the bottom drawers
  • Drinking mostly whole milk (finishing out the last can of formula)
  • Drinking out of straw cups
  • Loves to crawl up the stairs
  • Still a great sleeper but starting to fight the morning nap sometimes.

This has been an amazing year.  I never knew how much I'd love this little guy, how much fun we'd have, how much our lives would change.

Biggest Bone Ever...

Our first son, Admiral, was recently honored with having our neighborhood dog park named after him.  The Admiral Bark Park!  He's really getting a big head and thinks he's so special!  He's right, he is pretty darn special!


The groundbreaking ceremony was Friday and the development team asked us to come out for pictures.  We arrived to a bucket full of humongous bones, boxes of treats and several new toys.  SPOILED.ROTTEN!

Admiral was so proud of his new bone that he pranced around the house with it for a good hour.  He was trying to find a place to bury it and started to whine after not finding a suitable location.

Against our better judgment, we let the bone go outside with Admiral.  Ryan went to work in the yard this morning and noticed the bone was missing.  He said, "Admiral, where's your bone?  Bone?"  Admiral trotted off to the trees and proudly showed Ryan where he had half buried it.  Unfortunately, since Ryan knew its location, Admiral had to remove it so we didn't get a picture.  We think its been reburied this evening so maybe we'll get a picture tomorrow!

Admiral loves his the new squeaker toy and Cason had to get in on that action
