The Big 3-0

And I'm not talking about my age. Turning 30 is old news for me as I'm facing down 32 in the not-too-distant future. Nope, someone else in the Smith household hit a 3-0 milestone today ...

30 pounds feels like a big victory today. 30 pounds may come and go on other kids, but for our mister, this is another one of those "thank-you-Lord-for-your-faithfulness" moments. When Luke hovered under 7 pounds for so many weeks before and after his first surgery, we never thought we'd see the day when Luke's dietician would declare him her "poster boy" for steady growth. His growth chart is almost funny. You couldn't plot it more perfect if you tried. His curve is steady and thankfully, upward. He continues to be in the 15% for weight and 20% for height. He stood tall today at 37 1/4", and we stand proud to be Luke's mom and dad, privileged to get to watch him overcome obstacles that often go hand-in-hand with a congenital heart defect.

  1. This is wonderful growth! We, too, were so so happy to reach the 30-lb mark. It is a big milestone!

    Way to go, Luke!!
