So, in it's place you get the LIAYF 2009 Year in Review. Not exactly original, but I hope you enjoy the month by month look back at what I consider my most memorable posts. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
January: At just over 1 1/2 years of age, Mrs. LIAYF and I somehow thought it would be a good idea to introduce a little 'culture' to Lukas' life by taking him to the symphony. This met with predictable results.
February: As Valentines day approaches Lukas learns firsthand that despite cupids arrow, long distance relationships are cause for singing the blues.
March: The waning months of Winter find me waxing nostalgic about a time when spontaneity was a realistic concept and also appreciating the true finer things in life.
April: I give convincing photographic evidence to Mrs. LIAYF that her dream of Lukas being a cute 'moppy-headed' boy is unrealistic.
May: I announce my arrival on the scene of the hottest social media phenomenon, and give insight on just how I became @Seattledad.
June: The post where a single picture defines what happiness means!!
July: I expose a frightening threat to little guys everywhere, and consider shopping for a new Bro!
August: We take time out of our busy summer to visit the Zoo. It is our first visit where Lukas can actually understand and look forward to seeing his favorite animals. Like the Polar Bear! (which, unfortunately doesn't reside at our local zoo)
September: Who knew Elmo could be so darn scary! Not me.
October: October was the month that our family had an F-ing problem, and I was a bother to Lukas.
November: After 42 years, I finally get my first Tattoo. And it is fierce.
December: How your kids see you does not always coincide with how you picture yourself.
