4: You awakened mommy and daddy very early on the morning of Tuesday, August 3, 2010. They decided that it was time to go to the hospital. Mommy called grandma and papaw on the way. The nurses at the hospital greeted mommy and daddy and prepared for your birth. Mommy was checked out by the nurses and they determined that she was in labor. Mommy and daddy walked the halls of the hospital. When grandma got there a short time later, she was surprised that mommy wasn't in her room. When grandma found her she walked with mommy, too. Your mommy was quite the trooper and daddy and grandma were very proud of her. You might find it funny to know that mommy was posting on Facebook via her cell phone the entire day, so all her friends and family knew exactly what was happening all along the way. Dr. Salazar came in to see mommy and said this was it and they admitted her to the hospital. Everyone was excited because we were finally going to get to meet you! While mommy posted on Facebook, daddy went to check on your big brother and grandma crocheted. It was very hot outside, so everyone was happy to be indoors. Papaw came to the hospital and mommy and grandma talked him into calling off work so he, too, could be there for your arrival. Uncle Justin showed up a little later, too. When it appeared that it was going to be a little while before you would arrive, papaw grandma, and Justin went to get something to eat and to rent a movie to watch while we waited for you. While we were gone, grandma was very surprised to get a phone call from mommy saying she was ready to push. So we hurried back to the hospital. Papaw, grandma, and uncle Justin had to wait in the waiting room. Then one of the nurses came to get grandma. We all wondered what was happening. We thought maybe you had arrived. The doctor and nurses needed more help because another baby was also about to arrive. So grandma was asked to help, and she couldn't have been happier. You arrived at 11:20p.m. Mommy, daddy and grandma were overjoyed when we first heard you cry. It was a beautiful sound. We were all surprised that you had blond hair and blue eyes. Grandma couldn't wait to tell papaw and when she did, he didn't believe it. After they got you checked out and cleaned up, papaw and Uncle Justin were allowed to come see you. When everything settled down, daddy went to get your big brother. Daddy and Alex spent the night with you and mommy. Grandma, papaw, and Uncle Justin went home very, very happy!!!!!! | THE DAY YOU WERE BORN

It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more." ~ Dr. Seuss

72: On May 1, 2011, mommy and daddy had to take you to the emergency room at the hospital because you were not eating or drinking and you had a fever of103. It was really scary for them and for grandma and papaw. The nurses tried several times to draw blood but were having a difficult time because you were dehydrated, so they had to draw blood and put an IV line in a vein in your head. Fortunately, it looked a lot worse than it was. Grandma and Papaw came to the hospital to be with you and mommy and daddy. The nurses gave you some medicine to bring down the fever and gave you some fluids through the IV. We could certainly tell when you started to feel better and we were all very happy when you didn't want to lay still any longer. After your trip to the hospital and a follow-up trip to the doctor, they said you had an ear infection and were dehydrated. Fluids and some antibiotics fixed you right up!

99: Birthday Gifts!!!!!!! | Your First Birthday Party Lots of preparation went into your Cookie Monster-themed Birthday Party, Lucas. Mommy and daddy worked hard to make it a very special day for you. A small bounce house was borrowed from some people at grandma and papaw's church, mommy and daddy rented a big bounce house, some friends of mommy brought their slip and slide and your pool was set up along with another pool filled with balls. Mommy even brought home her sand table from school and Papaw rented a cotton candy machine. So, there were lots of fun things for kids to do. Cornhole was set up for the "big kids" to play. Sixty-two family members and friends came to your birthday party. This is an indication as to how much you are loved, Little Man. | Lucas with some of his many, nice birthday gifts!
