My dear sweet Lucas,
Words cannot describe how proud of you we are. There were so many milestones we knew would come by the time you were 18 months. We knew you'd be walking, we knew you'd be starting to talk, we knew you'd be using a spoon and fork most of the time, and we knew you would be growing and changing so much!
Little did we know how much we'd love you and how much you'd change our lives! Every decision we make is in your best interest. Where we go, how long we stay, where we eat, how we choose who drives and who doesn't, what games we play, what is on TV, what music we listen to, etc. You are such a part of us that we don't know what we did before you came along.
We are about to move out of this house we brought you home to and right now we don't know where we will be living long-term. It's scary and exciting all at the same time. We hope you know we are doing this all because we are thinking of your future. We are thinking of what church we want you to grow up and be a part of, we are thinking of what school we want you to attend, we are thinking of a house where you can grow up and explore, we are thinking of you!
We want you to know that we will always love you and we will always do what's best for you. We will always put your interests above our own. We are here for you!
We love you so much and are so excited you are sharing this adventure with us! We are so thankful to be your parents and we trust that God will take care of all three of us along the way!
All our love,
Mommy and Daddy
