Happy 8-Months Son!

Luke-1 Day old
Luke-8 Months Old
Well Luke is growing like a weed. An extremely attractive, quick-witted, financially responsible, career driven yet family oriented, weed. I can't believe he's getting so big. It seems like yesterday I was lying in an OR hopped up on morphine and now I'm sitting at a computer drinking coffee. And also Luke is a lot bigger.

I can't get over how blessed we are to have him as our son. He's just so much fun. And also really good at chess. We don't play with pawns though. Those are a choking hazard.

Before too long he'll be walking and talking and hopefully growing some teeth. I know he won't be my baby forever and I will fight the urge to treat him like he is.

As for now, I am embracing every moment of him loving to be cuddled and kissed and sung to. It won't be long before he notices that the songs I make up don't rhyme at all. And are all sung to the tune of Billy Ocean's "Caribbean Queen." I don't know why. I can't help it.

Luke, I can't believe I get to be your mom. I can't wait to see the amazing man you become. Just don't become him too fast. I love you son.


  1. He truly is a good looking kid. We will teach Henry chess so that he can keep up with Luke. Can't wait til you guys are here.

  2. Get that boy back to Orlando. If he starts crawling please push him down. I want to be there to see it :)

  3. This would have made me cry two months ago. Today it made me bawl. Thank you for being so gifted at putting words to these new feelings I have been experiencing over the last eight weeks...especially the part about becoming a man too soon. Yes. Very much.

  4. Time flies... Enjoy each moment..
