For the next five weeks, I still have a three year old boy. I can't even believe that he is almost four. Four! That's how old Hannah and Leah were when he was born! What? In spite of this growing up that he insists on doing, he will still be my funny, sweet natured, man-of-many-expressions, book loving, superhero boy.
Lucas is quite the dramatic little actor. He loves to make up plays to perform with his sisters. His role usually involves either a superhero or a villan and his lines are mostly exploding noises or karate chopping sounds. Sometimes he is the Knight in Shining Armor and he rescues the twin princesses. Those plays are my favorite.
This boy loves to read. His favorite books right now include: Where the Wild Things Are, The Little Red Hen, Corduroy, Harry and Horsie, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Toot! Toot! Beep! Beep!
He definitely earns the title "pickiest child" when it comes to eating. He basically lives off of Goldfish crackers, peanut butter sandwiches and apples. Oh and cheese pizza. The boy could eat his weight in cheese pizza. We're working on encouraging him to eat a wider variety of foods.
Lucas has recently developed a patch of grayish white hair near his forehead. I first noticed it at an outdoor birthday party back in March. The sun was glistening off his hair and I thought it was birthday cake smeared in there. Turns out, he has a patch of white and gray hair. It is the craziest thing! I checked his scalp to see if he had a scar or mole or something that might be causing this strange hair color, but I found nothing. I'm going to ask his pediatrician at our next well visit in August, but until then I've googled it and it appears to be nothing really. Just a quirky little thing, like his chipped front tooth, that makes him even more unique and lovable.
Lucas Gabriel Galloway,
You are a true delight. I love you will all my heart and look forward to watching you grow up.
