When Luke grows up, I think he will be a lot like this guy. Josh is my little brother, Stie's hubby, and one of my mom's favorite sons. I took this picture last night after Josh called to say he was in town and came to our house for dinner.
Josh is a great conversationalist...we talked all night long about a variety of topics. He is funny and smart. A great dad and husband and fun uncle for my kids.
Like Luke, Josh was once a gymnast. In fact, when I was a teenager and having moments of insecurity, he would always say, "Don't worry, Gab...just tell 'em your brother's a gymnast and you'll be all right." Somehow that never helped me feel better, but I was very proud of him and (although I couldn't admit it at the time...) I always felt better when Josh was around. Especially when I was driving.
But that's another story.
So, here's to a great man who was once a cute little boy...and to a cute boy I hope will grow up to be a great man. Love you guys!
p.s. I just thought of two more Luke-isms:
eatmeal--I'd like a bowl of eatmeal for breakfast.
pokeypine--The pokeypine lives in the woods and has pokers on his back .
Is the kid adorable, or what?!
