Happy 1st Birthday, Luke!

It does not seem like an entire year has passed since we were at the hospital meeting Luke for the first time, as narrated in this previous post. Describing the joys of this past year seems impossible, and my eyes have become misty at the attempt to do so. God has shown us His kindness in a way that I've never before experienced. Other than what we know of Luke, we know little about babies, so we are unable to compare him to what the "average" baby is like- nor do we see any good purpose in that. We just thank the Lord for a little boy who stays happy; who thrives being around other people yet also enjoys playing by himself when we need him to do so; who rarely whines; who already knows that he is to obey his mommy and daddy (and hopefully he's learning that obedience is a good thing!); who recognizes a green Mazda coming down our street and excitedly giggles and bounces when he sees his daddy in blue scrubs get out of that car every day; and who enjoys almost every moment of his day, whether he is playing, eating, or sleeping! Children truly are a blessing from the Lord, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude to God for giving us Luke. 

 Happy 1st Birthday, little Luke!
