Birthday Boy!

On this day 8 years ago, Chuck and I (and my Mom) were anxiously awaiting the arrival of my sweet Luke. He waited until the evening to finally make an appearance, but I've been in love with him ever since.

We started his birthday with a sign, cinnamon rolls, and the unwrapping of one present.

He got an ant farm. He's thrilled! Plus, I'm pretty excited about it too. Now I just have to order the ants.

He's grown up so much and I'm so proud of him even though it has been a rough year trying to figure out his ADD. We finally have it under control with medication and it has been a blessing to all of us. I'm so happy that he no longer cries at the thought of having to go to school. We've come a long way since his last birthday.

Tonight we are going to Pappasito's for dinner and having chocolate cupcakes. And this weekend he is having a laser tag birthday party. We've done it up right for him!

Happy birthday, sweet boy. I love you so much!

I want to call him tonight and wish him a happy birthday. I also want to explain how I will let him pick out his birthday gift when I am up there.
