Lukey of Mine

Happy 3rd Birthday Lukey!

This is Luke's song...Baby Mine from Dumbo

Baby Mine - Betty Noyes
A few things I love about Luke:

If he wants you to hold him he says "I want to hold you." This Christmas we were at Temple Square and He saw The Christus through the big glass windows across the way and yelled, "I want to hold it!"

At about 6am every morning we hear these sweet little feet running across the wood floors. He climbs in our bed, all grins. We want to be mad at him but he is so happy we can't.

He always says "love you too" even if you didn't say I love you first.

His body is so wiggly.

He loves animals, especially dogs. We both thought how amazing it would be to get him a puppy for his birthday, but that's not really an option right now.

Whenever I reprimand him he tries to distract me by saying, "Look at the baby, he's SO cute" in a super high voice.

He has a ninja stance and will out of the blue just freeze into position and then carry on as if nothing happened.

He does "squishy face" where he squishes your cheeks together and yells "squishy face."

He likes to cuddle.

He wants to be wherever Sammy is. I can't wait for him to be old enough for primary, it's always a battle to separate him from Sammy for nursery.

...these are just a few of the gazillion reasons I love Lukey, my sweet baby boy.

Baby mine, don't you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
never to part,
baby of mine.

Little one when you play,
don't you mind what they say.
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
never a tear,
baby of mine.

If they knew sweet little you
they'd end up loving you two.
All of those people who scold you
what they'd give just for the right to hold you.

From your head down to your toes,
you're not much, goodness knows.
But you're so precious to me,
sweet as can be,
baby of mine.
