Happy 3 months little man!

Today is Luke's 3 month birthday...

Tonight I will read Luke the book, "You Are Special" by Max Lucado. It was a special book given to us by Tricia. (Thanks Aunt T!).

Right after Luke was born, my whole family sat around and talked about every inch of him. One of our most favorite things about him were his sideburns. Not one of us had ever seen a baby with sideburns like Luke. He had thicker sideburns than most men do. Thus, the nickname..."little man" came to be. Every time my dad stood over Luke, he would call him little man.

You can kinda see his sideburns in this picture.

I'd like to share with you a song that has stolen my heart. It is my song for my sweet boy, my little man.

Sweet Luke, oh how Mommy and Daddy miss you. The world is such an empty place without you here. It's hard to think about how I am supposed to be packing up your newborn clothes and taking you over to your Papaw's every you should be going to your first birthday party this weekend - your cousin Crit is turning you should be pulling Rylie's hair and keeping me up every night. I hope that you know that you were everything I had ever dreamed of. God did not make a single mistake with you Luke. You were perfect. You are perfect...and Heaven is so much sweeter now that you are there. I am so proud to be your mommy. Sweet dreams, little man...We all love you so so so much.


  1. I don't even know what to write today, but just wanted you to know that you are not alone-what a beautiful post to your beautiful son. Praying for you still-thinking of you often.

  2. Kristin - what a sweet post. Luke is so fortunate to have parents like you and Benson. You are both such beautiful souls. I have always loved that song....but now I love it even more. So perfect for your little man, and all our little men ;) Thinking of you today and keeping you all in my prayers. Love you!!!! ~ Lindsey

  3. Kristen,

    What a beautiful song for such a beautiful child with amazing parents. Thinking of you and praying for you daily. I am always here for you.


  4. Kristin,
    I am at a loss for words! Just please know that be it three months or three years from now I am and will still be thinking of you, and praying for you. I just can't imagine what you have went through and are still coping with.
    Love, thoughts, and prayers

  5. Though we've never met I read your post often. Please know many people are praying and thinking of you daily. Luke could not have been born into a more loving & devoted family. May God bless you richly!

  6. I came over today from Megan's blog where she was talking about Ewan. I want you to know that I am so sorry about Luke. He is precious. I pray for your comfort and strength. I would like to know if you would like a handkerchief from my
    For Your Tears blog. You can email me with your name & address at I have mailed out over 244 handkerchiefs to baby lost mothers. Take care and God Bless.


Thanks for your sweet comment - don't forget to leave your name so we know who its from!
