Happy Birthday Luke!

My baby boy, how are you already 2 years old? It seems like just yesterday, that I found out we were expecting a boy. I was so was I going to raise a son? After three girls, I pretty much had that down...but this boy thing...was gonna throw me for a loop.

If only I could tell my pregnant self, what I know now. That you are the most precious little man I have ever known. That you would soften my heart in a way I never knew possible. That when you look at me, it brings tears to my eyes. That when I look at you, I see the little boy that you are and the man that you will become.

What an awesome responsibility I was given, on the day of your birth. It is up to me, to raise you to be an honorable, trustworthy, loyal, hardworking and sensitive man. The way that I raise you, will reflect forever on the world. The kind of husband and father you will someday be, will be determined by how well I did my job.

I love you, my little man. Thank you for making me smile and laugh, every single day. Thank you for loving me unconditionally.

Love, Mommy

What a great little tribute to your little man! It is so great to post ideas and feelings like this, sometimes we forget the reason why we blog-this is it. A way that we can always remember how fabulous our little people are!

Your 3 year old really? Enjoyable? are you sure this is not just a one day stage? Is she closer to 4 than 3? If this is really how it is-then please-share your secrest because 3 at my house is still the blue eyed devil!

Of course you can particiapte in the swap. I just did a differnt post cause I figured everyone was sick of reading the same thing over and over again.
Like i said-it will take place the first tuesday in june. watch the blog for all the details.
