Happy 6th Birthday Luca!


My Luca is six years old today. He woke up this morning and the first things he said was, "I am finally six!" All day I have been hearing things like... wow, my arms are longer now, and I can reach this now that I am six, and my hair is longer now that I am six. He is too funny. He has been home the past two days with a nasty virus so we didn't exactly get to celebrate the way we usually do. Instead we had some of Nonna's home made chicken soup and some cupcakes. After a trip to the doctor we made a quick stop at GameStop for a new game. He chose Club Penguin and all was well with the world. Luca will be having his "kid party" at the Rec Center this year. They have a great pool with water slides. He is really looking forward to it.

I love this funny, sweet, smart boy with all my heart and soul. He amazes me with his humor, honesty and his outlook on the world. He gives the best hugs with arms and legs wrapped around me. He draws me the sweetest pictures at school with us "in love and hugging." I love his lanky skinny body that looks just like mine did at his age. I love his big blue eyes with eyelashes a mile long. I love the way he answers "sure" but pronounced "shore" when he is answering a yes or no question. I love that he thinks that I am the smartest most perfect person he knows... he tells me all the time... I know that won't last long. I love that he looks to God when he has troubles. I love the way he asks one million questions when we are watching our new favorite show... Life. I love how he makes me laugh every single solitary day.

Over the past few years I have made little slide shows for the boys on their birthday. They really love them and now are expected. I can't seem to get this one to load onto blogger. Maybe it is too large a file.

Instead I found this little gem. I had forgotten how he would say "Yaaa yuhhh" and "Widda Widda had a farm" He also would say "Guh Guh" for "Buggah" which is what my kids came up with for the word Grandpa. I love his big finish at the end too!
