The big news of the month is that we left him for a weekend - first time that I have been away from him since he was born. Tim and I went to California for some fun in the sun and Luke stayed home with grandpa and grandma. They seriously get grandparents of the year award because they also had Ada, Miles and Gavin. It was tougher than I thought to leave him. While we were gone I ran across a quote from Anne Lamott that put into words so much of what I have been feeling. This is from her book Operating Instructions that is a memoir about the first year of her son's life. She says "Before I got pregnant with Sam, I felt there wasn't anything that could happen that would utterly destroy me...now there is something that could happen that I could not survive: I could lose Sam. I look down into his staggeringly lovely little face and I can hardly breathe sometimes. He is all I have ever wanted and my heart is so huge with love that I feel like it is about to go off". So true!

The crazier it looks.
I wanted the side view so you could
See how high the mohawk flows.
