My dearest Lucas…

My dearest boy.

Happy 3rd birthday! There’s so much I could write, but it wouldn’t be enough to convey how much you are loved. You are such a curious, analytical and loving soul. You observe and retain every little detail and nuisance, that you actually take my breath away. You know how to read body language and how to discern different levels of silence. You absorb books with such vigor and you absolutely love listening to Al Greene. You are a gem. And the reason I know that love is real and powerful.
