Luke, Age 7

Happy Birthday to my first boy, the one who melts my heart with his ocean blues.  You are already that boy who is the magic combination of tough on top and sweeter than candy (yes cotton candy) on the inside.

+  you love to play ball.  football, baseball, basketball….bouncy ball.  i often wonder why you don’t tire of this but you don’t.
+  you love candy a little too much.  i find wrappers crumpled up in the most interesting spots.  could it be all of the sweeties that make you so sweet?
+  you  light up anytime you see a a little baby (+ they always seem to light up when they see you, too) and I’m always assured of that very tender heart that is yours.
+  you are very serious about your hair, which is something to me, because you have the best hair ever (but i do miss your curls).
+  you are a great reader.  its like you didn’t even have to try.
+  your favorite book is nobody notices minerva
 you climb the door frame like spiderman
+  you ask to go to rm every night (which is code for red mango)
+  your favorite thing to wear is sports clothes, as in basketball shorts and t-shirts (grab your books, because you’re about to get schooled).
+  you like to wear your wallet chained to your pants
+  you have the best kind of laugh, the unstoppable giggle kind.
+  you are such a cuddle bear and love to cuddle more than when you were a babe.
+  you have a kindness about you that comes quite naturally
+  you love to watch super hero movies with your dad.
+  you are strong.  like muscle strong.
+  you would probably eat candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner if i let you.

Lukee, you light up my days when they are dark.  Your eyes, your smile, and your heart are a thousand rays chasing the clouds away.  It is no surprise that your name means light and illumination.   You do just that…illuminate our lives and light up our days.  I thank God for you.  You are my darling boy!
