Then He Was 6!


I'm a week late but... my sweetest kid (yeah, I said it) is 6! Lukas, my sweet talking, big brown eyed, gentle soul, genius boy is getting just too dang old. How did it get to be another year has passed?! In my mind, this boy is still a bright blonde little dude, not this tall, handsome, school aged child that is so stinking intelligent, I've already made peace with the fact that in 12 years he'll leave me for some Ivy League on the East coast. He blows me away daily with his kind heart, old soul, and quick wit. 

He and I have always had this special connection, and even though I feel something different and special with each of my children, the relationship between Luke and me is something I just can't put into words. He truly is the best person, and even though it's quite bittersweet to see another year pass, getting to be his mom and walk through life with him is the greatest blessing. I can't wait to see what kind of man he becomes. 

Happy Birthday, sweet Lukas, I love you more than all the stars in the galaxy.
