Luke's 1st Birthday

Luke turned 1 on June 26! He had a lot of presents to contend with...
...including some that weren't wrapped. (Whoops!)

He got the hang of opening gifts a lot better than he did at Christmas.

Oh look, a Corn Popper! (As seen in church nurseries across the country!)

He also got to try chocolate cake for the first time! He wasn't really sure what to do with it... but he had some help.

Happy birthday, Luke!

Luke sneaks a drink

Luke has taken to drinking from our glasses when we're not looking, so we have to be careful what we leave on the table!

Luke the mimic

Luke is starting to mimic sounds or motions that we make... tonight he was trying to imitate Ryan's growly-snarly noise.

Luke's early birthday cake

Luke is almost one year old! We decided to have a little mini-party/cake tasting while Grandma and Grandpa Lonnevik were in town. Luke wasn't too sure about the cake at first...

...but he quickly got the hang of it and started shoving it in his face by the handful.

He managed to eat most of it, except for what he decided to rub into his eyebrows. Yum, yum... why can't we have cake all the time?

Luke and his grandpa

Luke got to spend some quality time with Grandpa John while Sarah's parents were in town for portraits. Grandpa reminded everyone why they call them "bouncing baby boys."

Family portraits

Two weeks before Luke's first birthday, we had some family portraits taken with Luke's grandparents, great-grandmother, and godparents.

This was the first picture that was taken - he looks great in front of the quit Grandma made for him!

Here's our little family.

Luke had some great poses!

And here is everyone together. We're so glad some of Luke's big family got to come to Austin to take pictures with us!

Luke's first haircut

A week before we took some family portraits, we realized it was time for Luke to get his first haircut. At 11 months old, he was getting quite shaggy.

So we took him to Birds Barbershop in Austin, where Ryan and Luke would both get a haircut. They even give you beer while you wait!

We had only made it through about half of one beer when they called us back. Ryan got caped up and held Luke on his lap.

Finally, it was time for Julia to start snipping.

But the snipping didn't last long - Luke started fidgeting and I had to put the camera down while Julia quickly worked some magic with her clippers. Soon she was done, and Luke looked great!
