Luke is 5!
My sweet baby Luke is now 5 years old, one whole hand! I say it every year and so I will say it again, times sure flies by fast. There are times I look at his face and can still see him as a baby or a two year old and think it wasn’t that long ago. I love each age and even though there are tough moments and days this little boy steals my heart every day. His sweet little voice when he says mama, or when he says “I just love you” it gets me every time! This year for Luke’s 5th birthday, we went to Disney World. We took Brooke when she turned 5 so it was now Luke’s turn! We actually hadn’t been back to Disney World since Brooke’s 5th birthday so we were all excited to go back! It had been way too long! My mom was going to go with us, but ended up in the hospital and then physical therapy so she had to stay back. We had a great time and loved celebrating our sweet Luke at Disney! When we get back from our trip, Luke will have his birthday party at a bounce house place to celebrate with his friends back home!
My Sweet baby Luke;
Yes I still call you baby because you will always be mommy’s baby. You tell me that you aren’t a baby and I always tell you, well you will always be my baby. You just smile and then move on! Luke, I can not tell you how proud I am of you and how much I love you. You are the sweetest yet most stubborn, hard headed little boy, yet steals my heart all in the same day! Your little voice when you say mama is still the cutest thing to me, even after it has been said three thousand times that day. You know how to make us laugh, and also how to make us super frustrated. You know what you want and you stick to that decision and no one will change your mind, unless its mommy or daddy and we make you after minutes of arguing with you, lol. I won’t have to worry about you being pressured into anything because when you have your mind made up, its made. I love that about you and even though its tough at times, I know its an amazing quality God has given you! You are such a fun kid and have such a fun personality. You make friends with anyone and are a little charmer, especially when it comes to mommy! This is your last year at home with Mommy before you start kindergarten in the fall and I am excited for you but also sad. I may have cried already thinking about you going into kindergarten. I have been so blessed to be spend each day with you and love each minute we get to spend together. Not having you home with me every day in the fall is going to be so hard for mommy (and maybe you some days) but I am excited to see you grow and learn. Baby boy you make me so happy and you know how to have fun and live life to the fullest!
