Today you turn 6 years old!! SIX! I don't even know what to do with that. Where has the time gone? Today, as you were walking out the door to kindergarten, I realized that was the time your daddy and I were walking out the door to the hospital, 6 years ago, to go meet our first baby. You were the only one that required labor. And you didn't make it easy. But I guess you paved the way for the other two that were to come, just as you do now. Luke, you are so smart! You are too smart sometimes. I have no idea where you get some of the things you say. And music...you have a genuine LOVE for it and I promise I will feed that love as much as possible. I hope it's something you stick with and becomes part of you. You are kind to others (that don't share a room with you) and are a natural born leader. I am so proud of you and love watching who you are becoming. You are like your daddy in so many ways, but there is no doubt that your also mine. I love you so much it hurts!! Thank you for being the first to make me a mommy! You helped make all my dreams come true! Happy Birthday Big boy!!
