To our dearest little chickadee,
Happy birthday little dragon!!! We simply cannot believe that you are officially a little kid now – 3 years old! When exactly did you walk your way out of toddlerhood and straight into being a preschooler? Somehow we blinked and all of a sudden you can zoom down the street on your balance bike with your feet up in the air and a grin from ear to ear, you can read and write your own name with startling clarity, and you proudly march off to preschool with your very own backpack set squarely on your shoulders. What hasn’t changed though is the fact that we continue to be amazed at how totally and completely awesome you are, every single day. You began calmly and intensely observing your world literally the minute you were born, and you’ve never stopped since. One of our absolute favorite things about you right now is how you hold your own during family conversations over the dinner table. No matter what the topic, you are always able to understand what we’re talking about and relate it to something you know, and these connections you make actually make real sense. Where did you get this amazing brain? It blows us away constantly. We love that you are our resident mindfulness instructor, gently leading us through calming breathing exercises when we get a little too upset over this or that. We love that even though you’re learning how to assert your independence in increasingly defiant ways, you’re still utterly sweet and loving to the core. Especially first thing in the morning, when you wake up eager for what the day will bring, and you reach over to cup our cheeks and gaze lovingly into our eyes and say time and again the cutest, sweetest things. Ever. We can’t believe you’re not a baby anymore, little dragon, but if you’re going to be this ridiculously awesome all the time then we’re ok with it. Love you BG!!!
We make Luca’s lunch every night and he gets a pretty healthy selection of fruits, veggies, and some sandwich or pasta all packed into his cool lunch box. While a lot of parents do the same I think I can say Luca has the coolest lunch notes in kindergarten!
Luca Lee it seems like only yesterday your mom and I brought you home from the hospital to our little condo in Pasadena.
We blinked and now it’s your first day of kindergarten
We all love you so much and your sisters were so proud of their big brother
