The "Women" in Luke's Life

"The engagement between them is of a peculiar kind. From their infancy, they have been intended for each other. It was the favorite wish of his mother, as well as of hers."
-- Lady Catherine, from Pride and Prejudice

Luke has been subject to several of these wishes, at least on the mother of the daughter's side. I am always happy to go along with any such plotting, the first of which I think I started speculating first.

This is Luke and Kara. I should have more pictures of them together, but most of the pictures are on Jared's computer because this computer didn't exist when Luke and Kara were always together. Kara is the daughter of our best friends who still live in Utah. They went to the same baby-sitter and as we were with the Peats at least once a week and often more, they hung out. Naturally Callie and I started the whole "Wouldn't it be cool if they got married some day?" kind of talk.

When we first moved to Virginia, Luke didn't hang out with any girls, so Kara's place in his heart was pretty secure. But then we met the Beans who have a daughter named Emiline.

Uh Oh. Did Luke's heart change objects?

He seems pretty enraptured...

Hayley really does have her "secret" wish that they will get married some day. She even wants to use the first picture of Luke and Emiline together on their wedding invitation. I'm cool with that, and I was even ready to order the invitations until.... Dum Dum Dum

I started watching Esme on Mondays and Wednesdays about a month ago. Heather (Esme's mom) is starting to build up her hopes. Will Esme end up with the brown eyed handsome man? I have to say that it looks like she's in the lead.

Apart from stealing her toys, Luke dotes on her. Her tries to rock her. Her brings Esme her binkie. He talks to her. He laughs at her. And he shows off for her.

On Monday he was cuddling next to her.

And he even patted her tush.

I think we have a winner.

But don't give up just yet, Emiline. You live close enough to fight for his heart. Just keep shining your baby blues and sharing your slide with Luke, and he might forget all about Esme. Ha Ha Ha

Well, we're betting on Esme being the heart breaker (every boy has one right?). Then, Emiline will swoop in on the rebound and sweep Luke away. Ah, arranged marriages. Aren't they grand?
