Tribute to Lukey


We went to the temple the other night (I know, aren't we spiritual?) and I had little Luke constantly on my mind. I had a good chance that day to spend some quality time with just Luke and was really enjoying his sweetness. This chance doesn't happen often since Cooper is certain to make his presence known if we're paying too much attention to Luke. I realized, again, what a sweet, pleasant, FUN baby Luke is and felt an outpouring of love for him. At the temple I was getting so, so excited to be sealed to him. Hopefully we'll be setting that up in the next few months. I got excited and anxious and just wanted to have that special moment in my memory already. I feel so grateful for Luke and the joy he has brought into our lives. He is so precious to us and we are grateful to Melissa, his birth mom, for giving us the opportunity to bring such a special person into our family. We feel as though our lives are truly touched by the hand of God! Let's not forget it is also touched by the hand of chaos--and soon to be even more so!! Anyhow, I love my Lukey so much and felt it was time to give him a bit of the spotlight!

That was such a precious post for your sweet little Luke. He will read that when he's older and he will know just how much you guys loved him. We are excited for you to get sealed to him too. I have never seen a family sealing, your's will be the first! Give that kid and Cooper loves from their Aunt Shalie!
