The boy turns 11 on Sunday.
Sure is hard to think back to 2002. Like his older sister, he was born on a Sunday. And also like his sister, we did not get to spend the
delivery with the obstetrician that we spent the previous months with because it was not their “on call” weekend.
Unlike his sister who decided to come into the world early, this guy wanted to stay in longer for a little more rest. Probably 4 days longer. And he picked a good day because it was in the mid 50’s that day.
It would be cool if I had a super story like when Anna was born.
But we watched some football in the birthing center that day at Columbia St. Mary’s. The Saint Louis Rams (“Greatest Show on Turf”) advanced to play the New England Patriots that day. Micheal Jordon was on the Wizards, and Glenn Robinson was still on the Bucks.
Michelle had a spinal epidural like she did with Anna, but this time it took a little longer to wear off and her first visit to see Luke was in a wheel chair because she still did not have use of her legs.
I think that my Aunt had a date with Steve on the east side and stopped by to visit on her way to meet up with Steve. They would get married a year and half later.
Now we fast forward to now.
Luke is a sports geek. Not sure where he gets that. He told me that he wants to work with computers when he gets older. Not sure where he gets that either. He has strong opinions on his hair. Another strange thing that I am not sure where he gets this. He likes soccer, swimming, going to choir, and reading.
He has already been to Miller Park, Lambeau Field, Camp Randall, and the Kohl Center for sporting events.
He is coming into his own now. He will be in middle school in the fall. Hard to believe that the picture above was just 6 years ago. The one to the left was this past Packer season.
Happy Birthday Luke!
