These little men....they can be complete goons sometimes.  If you could have seen the pictures I had to sort through to get this one.  Sometimes, being a mom is hard work.  Usually I feel over-worked, under-appreciated, tired, ignored, frustrated and pretty much like a broken record player.  But every now and again, I get a chance to stop and look at the big picture.  I get a glimpse of the men these sweet faces will become and am reminded of the gift they each are.  I am so thankful this Christmas to have my little family and know they are mine forever.  


My little Luke.  I can't believe it's been a whole year since you first entered our lives.  To say you have changed us would be an understatement.  I had no idea babies could be so difficult.  And yet, those smiles mean so much more to me when they come from you.  I love to watch you smile and play with your daddy and brothers, who you so adore.  I love that you love to peek around corners to play peek-a-boo.  And I love to watch you point at things when you get excited.  I love you little bug.  We are so happy you have blessed our little family this last year.    DSC04583_edited-1 DSC04592_edited-1 DSC04598_edited-1 DSC04607_edited-1
