Today is GOTCHA DAY FOR LUKE --- the five years has flown by (well a larger majority of the days have so that's a good thing). The precious needy baby that we brought home is now independent for many things but still willing to give out more cuddles than imaginable. He is a very inquisitive five (almost six) year old and is so tender hearted. He still loves to hold doors open for others and say "after you" and grin. He is also still "all about Daddy". Trains are in just about every thought of his. We have moved on from Thomas but we are now into pointing out steamies and diesels and asking Daddy about how his NORFOLK & SOUTHERN Stock is doing (thanks to Poppop's generous stock gifts). He still wants to be an Engineer and work with trains. Next month he will start Kindergarten. He is excited about going to the school that mommy went to and the fact that it is across the street seems to be really cool for him right now. (I am sure that will change pretty fast though like it did for me).
For all the LOVE, HUGS, KISSES, SMILES and wonderful LUKE-isms we have gotten along the way we can still say that there is no other 'son' for us. He is as much a part of us as one can be. We are excited about the years to come and will continue to celebrate Gotcha Day every year. Today we went to get a PIRATE costume for our GOTCHA DAY GIFT and Luke chose CHILI'S as his dining place. He ate more salsa tonight than ever. FINALLY....the spicy Guatemalan side is coming out! Mommy has been waiting for him to 'love spicey' and it's coming.
To the next five years........ oh how they will fly by!
With Love and Hugs!!
