I always wanted children and this past January, my sweet and sour Luke came into this world on the fast track. I say sweet and sour for a reason. Any parent would be a liar if they said that screeching cry an infant can sometimes make doesn’t make them wish they had ear plugs. You know the cry. The one where their face turns deep red and it lasts so long, you wonder if they’re going to start breathing soon.
The sweetness overrides the sour by a long shot. He may only be two months old today, but his first smile threw me for a loop. His first true giggle was one of the most amazing sounds I’ve ever heard and I was lucky enough to have it caught on camera, not just for my enjoyment, but also for his deployed father to see and hear.
He drives me crazy at times and when I’m at my most exhausted, he smiles right at me as if he knows that’s exactly what I needed. He’s my little love and I can’t wait for our adventures ahead.
