If you ask Luca if he’s two years old, he will shake his head and say, “Nooooooo!”, as if you’ve just offended him in the worst way. But it’s true, my love. You are two. And it feels like it was just yesterday that we celebrated your first birthday.

Luca’s latest obsession (besides being shirtless) is with the alphabet. He searches for letters everywhere.. on license plates, t-shirts, signs, shops, you name it. You should see his face light up as he recites each one, proudly. He knows all twenty-six but when he sees the letter M, he will always say “Mama” instead of the actual letter. Sweet boy. He continues to be the best sleeper and has slowly become the pickiest eater. His bedtime stories must be read with both Charlie and I sitting on either side of him, close enough so he can hold onto our arms. And in the event one of us dozes off while the other is reading (hey, its been known to happen) you can count on a chubby little hand reaching up to gently poke our eyes. He keeps us in check, this boy of ours. He is an easy going, independent spirit with just the right amount of mischief to remind us that he is, in fact, a toddler.  And he makes my heart melt a zillion times a day.
Luca, my sweet boy, who’s eyes and smile light up my days.. happy birthday. I love you so much.
