Happy Birthday Luca!

Happy 5th birthday to our little monkey! What a journey it’s been to watch you grow and to witness your mind unfolding and comprehending more about your world. It’s astonishing to see the level of depth and complexity at which you process things and we are constantly impressed with the types of questions this leads you to ask. Who knew that at this age we’d be discussing city infrastructure and the inner workings of public water systems, or the layers of what lies below the streets and roads, or front vs rear wheel drive and how this determines how a car will be hitched to a tow truck? And of course how many hours have we spent comparing and contrasting the feeding habits and levels of speed and agility of various sauropods, theropods, ornithopods, etc? We love your excellent sense of humor, your absolute dedication to anything you set your mind to, and your incessant curiosity. And you are hands down the best big brother any two little girls could ever hope to have. You are full of energy, too full at times, and that whirlwind of excitement definitely keeps our house alive. But you are also the sweetest little guy we know, sentimental and romantic to the core. Thank you for all that you bring to our family, and for just being you. We love you!

Luca was a model ring bearer. He walked proudly all by himself down the aisle, and stood calmly and quietly at the groom’s side during the ceremony. A couple of times he leaned forward to catch my eye and we shared a silent moment with silly raised eyebrows.

Of course we couldn’t expect the wedding to be completely perfect. Here you can see flower girl #1 (my daughter, of course) being helped back up after tripping and spilling her flower petals all over the aisle, while flower girl #2 takes off in a full speed sprint in the background. Autumn wasn’t at all upset or embarrassed about falling, but she did insist that we pick up EVERY. SINGLE. FLOWER. PETAL. before continuing on.

Super dad and super baby – she slept soundly through the whole ceremony!
