He's Five

Luke @ 5 (2)

How did my baby-doll-Luke become a five-year-old? I'm soaking up every moment with this guy, knowing that time is fleeting.

How can I describe Luke? We call him Mr. Earnest. He is Curious George. He is a dare-devil, a monkey, a tender-hearted lover. He is quiet, but his mind constantly asks, 'What will happen if I...?' He wants to help. He wants to fix things. He wants to be loved. He is mischievious. He is ornery. He is bare-footed. He is incredibly strong; sensitive, concerned. He loves worms and ladybugs. His face holds a million expressions which melt me a hundred times each day.

Luke @ 5

A boy is truth with dirt on its face,
beauty with a cut on his finger
and the hope of the future
with a frog in its pocket.

Luke @ 5 (3)

(And bike crash scrapes, and a black eye/nose, and a puncture wound in his foot, and mud under his fingernails...)

Isn't five just the most fun ever!! I always tell the four year old's I know that when you are five you can make your own peanutbutter and jelly's.
You have taken some great picture's they really capture his spirit. My baby graduated from high school last night so you are smart to savor every moment.
