Lucas in Sombrero

Not only is Lucas sporting a nice fro these days, but he sometimes likes to wear his sombrero out for a walk in the park or to his pre-nursery school classes.

Lucas Goes Farming

Lucas was in heaven as he headed up to Ledyard, NY where Papa Haines grew up to have fun with his cousins, Timo and Sebastian, Aunt Rebecca, Uncle Patrick and lots of extended family and celebrate his grandfather's 70th birthday. It was a wonderful week where Lucas got to enjoy a lot of the heavy machinery and some ice cream too!

Wedding Bells - Lucas the Ringbearer

Lucas had a great time in Boulder, CO where he was a ring bearer at Auntie Chappell's and Uncle James's wedding. He held a sunflower with the rings attached as he navigated down some steep steps to the expectant bride and groom. He also had a great time on the dance floor afterwards at the reception which was so much fun!

I believe I can fly

Lucas had a great 4th of July on Fire Island. He especially enjoyed some wild acrobatics on the beach with mommy and daddy.

Fathers Day Present

I woke up this morning and Lucas asked me what I wanted for Father's Day given he had special powers and could deliver any gift I desired. Socks? Tie? I don't think so. I decided to ask for a rare Galapagos Tortoise to see if he could really make good on his promise. He disappeared and ten minutes later I could not believe my eyes as Lucas came riding up on a 400 pound tortoise which he had quickly tamed to follow his every command. Amazing kid.

Lucas Slides Solo

Lucas hit the newly opened kids playground at Washington Square Park today. Amid the chaos, he showed Mom, Dad and Auntie Chaps how he can climb and slide all by himself. Turn up the sound so you can hear the squeals down the slide.

Lucas in the Sprinklers

To cool off from the 90 degree temperatures in NYC on Memorial Day, Lucas hit his favorite waterfront park in Tribeca. This video follows him as he fearlessly makes his way through the kiddie crowds in search of dump truck (not his) which he promptly seizes as his own.

Lucas @ Chelsea Piers Park

Lucas enjoyed a nice spring day romping around the new Hudson River Park @ Chelsea Piers including a trip to the new merry go around where he had great fun as he soared on an eagle.

Lucas Walks Part II

I seem to have generated a lot of controversy from the legions of readers last time I (his father) posted a video of Lucas purportedly walking using a little cart for additional balance. Is he really walking if he is using a cart for assistance readers (his mother) asked?

Lucas, like me, was frankly offended by such naysaying. To put the matter to rest once and for all, Lucas graciously agreed to strut his stuff in a follow up video. As I think this video attests, there is no doubt that L-Dog is officially walking and even offering to clean up tissues on the ground and put them into the garbage.

Mohonk Adventure

Last weekend we headed upstate for some nature and adventure. Lucas braved the cold, but let's be honest--the heated pool was where it was at.

March Madness - I Love the Blue Devils

After a little back and forth, Lucas finished up his bracket, paypaled in the $20 entry fee, and is cheering on his champion pick - the Duke Blue Devils. Hopefully, he can bring home the bacon with his  "LuckyLucas" entry.

Lucas is One

Lucas is one and we were back at the pediatrician for the 12 month check up. You may recall this pic from his 6 month date with Dr. R. Well, the kid's all grown up now. He weights almost 26 pounds, measures 32 inches which is quite literally off the charts. And he has a large noggin like his pa. I can never seem to remember the head circumference data. Bottom line: the kiddo is healthy and muy grande.

First Christmas

Lucas celebrated his first Christmas on December 26 as snows of the infamous Blizzard of 2010 came pouring down from the skies.

Feliz Navidad!

We took a wonderful holiday trip with Grandma and Grandpa Haines and Uncle Patrick, Aunt Rebecca and cousins Timo and Sebastian to the Mayan Riveria in Mexico. As the pictures below show, Lucas had so much fun to escaping the New York cold and enjoy the Mexican sun and getting (and giving) lots of love to his family!!!
