Nine Years with Lucas

As I sit and look through Lucas' baby pictures I can't believe it's been nine years since we first laid eyes on him. It continues to amaze me how quickly time passes us all by each and everyday.



One of the many times he was in the hospital during his first year of life. RSV/rotovirus/meningitis. At home he slept on my chest each night so the hospital meant nothing different to him. At that time they were very strict about the babies and would not let him sleep with me in the chair...he had to be in the crib so I had to be up there too. Let's just getting up there was very interesting and my body hurt like never before each morning.



David and Lucas used to race on this slip and slide...it was so fun to watch the two of them!



This picture brings tears to my eyes. I can't express in words how much Lucas wanted a sister. When she finally got here he was almost in tears and was so excited. The very next day he got sick and had to go stay with one set of grandparents..wasn't allowed around her for a week. Broke my heart...I still vividly remember being on the phone crying because he couldn't see her...now he complains when she unplugs his video games :)



Doing what he loves!



I'll have his party pictures up soon....I need to sort through them.

Oh, that reminds me so much of Robert! He wanted a baby SISTER so badly and he was so mad when Cameron came out a boy. The doctors had told us he'd be a girl, so Robert was sure God had screwed up and given us the wrong baby. So when Riley was born, Robert was THRILLED to death! And now, yes, she's just one more sibling to annoy him! =0)
