A month of Firsts!

First Bike Ride: he's borrowing his cousin Madeline's helmet, so most of his trip was seen out of one eye. He would say "GO GO GO" when David picked up speed! This kid loves life!
First trip to the Lake Charles Spray Grounds: He was ready for a nap, so David and I probably had more fun than he did... no matter.

First Trip to the Beach: Thank to the Robichaux family of Thibodaux (Friends from Camp) who invited us to Grand Isle! John Paul ate it up- literally. All sand in the mouth, and he continued to crawl in and out of the waves, not caring that eventually, being submerged in water can hurt you (he would scream when we pulled him to higher ground- not surprised)
First trip to the park- is anybody catching on that David is the best Daddy EVER? He have one of John Paul sliding down the big kid slide by himself, but I didn't feel like being judged for that one- but you're catching on to the dare-devil-ness that is John Paul Dawson.
And finally FIRST BIRTHDAY! Back in August (I know it's been a while). Like his mother, he loves icing! We had to take the cake away for fear that he wouldn't sleep for a week from all the enjoyment of cake- like mother like son!

I will soon post a video of his first STEPS!! We're not rushing this one, because obviously, he will be a firecraker one his feet get under him.
