Happy Birthday My Sweet Lucas! (as well as post #3)
I cannot believe that Lucas is 3. I think that this has been the fastest 3 years of my life. When I went into Labor with Lucas I didn't realize I was in Labor! It was early, which I had never done before, and it was in my back. Also something very new to me! The labor was pretty simple and normal. Just long. Mom and Stephen had just stopped at the hospital to say that they had to head home but they would be back in the morning to see the baby. I said "If you run out to the waiting room and give me a few minutes you can see the baby tonight!" The look on Stephen's face was priceless. He couldn't get out of that room fast enough! Dr. Bierer walked in got ready and said "alright let's push" I sat up to push and he said "ok and stop" I said "huh?" Then he said "Ok and push" I leaned forward to push and he said "ok he's out!" I was shocked. It almost didn't feel real. Didn't feel like I'd had a baby! Mike called him our freebee baby.
Lucas is such a funny boy. Sweet and Spicy. Fire and Water. It depends on the second! He does everything with passion. And he is my snuggler. He loves and fights with everything he has. I have been trying to teach him about his middle name, and why he was named Lucas Joseph. My Opa was Richard Joseph, and he loved mr through some really tough times, and so Lucas was named for him and for the Prophet Joseph Smith. So we've been talking about that a lot lately. Lucas loves Joseph Smith and storied about him. And if you ask him righ now he will tell you that his name is "Lucas Joseph Smith Staten". It's so cute! I just keep telling him that he is a boy of faith just like his name sake!
Today he want's a round brown cake with candles and fire. ANd then he decided that he wanted cookies and big marshmallows on it. I have tried to talk him int a "cute" cake like I usually make, but he is very insistent. So my morning just got easier!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCAS!!!! I love you my little one.
