We are officially declaring d'ar.........cyyy as Julian's first word. Julian choose to honor his very best friend who makes sure that he is read to at night even when mommy isn't up to it. She's the one who keeps him giggling long after they should have been asleep and who frees him from the jerry rigged thumb sucking prevention bandage that mommy and daddy are forcing him to wear at night. Good choice, Julian.

Julian has also decided that walking is worth the pain and suffering. Yesterday, at the library, he spent about an hour and a half happily walking up and down the aisles. D'arcy was excited to get her stroller back as she has decided that walking isn't really worth the trouble.

Julian's new wheels! D'arcy is just as excited. We've been taking walks in the wagon a couple of times a week.

Pumpkin Patch

D'Arcy was adament that I needed a pumpkin to paint as well. Even after I told her that I wasn't buying another one, she somehow convinced the lady to give her one for free. I guess it was her cuteness factor.

This weekend we went to a birthday party, and the kids got charicatures of themselves drawn. I think Julian's eyes are pretty accurate.

Our Party Side Yard

We've been talking about sending pictures of our side yard for a year... I finally took some at night. This is where we had Julian's party. We are having a Halloween Outreach here this month. Although it still needs some work. It is looking much improved from its original state.

I'm Walking!

Julian decided to practice walking on his first birthday. Every day he takes a few more steps and becomes a little more confident.

This is what he looks like when he is tired of us trying to put him on his feet.

Julian's Birthday Party

We celebrated Julian's birthday this Saturday with a small party at our home. You get a "healthy" cake on your first birthday. Julian's was made with fresh apples, cinnamon, and honey. You can tell from the pictures how much he enjoyed it.
