I wrote a post when Luke was 5 weeks old about all the things I didn’t want to forget about this new little person. . .
And recently, as I have been watching Luke grow into a little boy, I realized there are some more recent things that I never want to forget. . .
He loves using a fork. He will eat pretty much anything if you put it on the fork. And if he won’t eat it (chicken), put ketchup on it, put it on the fork, and then he’ll eat it!
He has just started holding hands. He “helped” Dad mow the lawn by holding on to Dad’s hand and walking with him. I didn’t have my camera with me, but that I will always remember that image of them holding hands walking around the yard mowing.
He is usually pretty good about going to bed, but sometimes he lies in his crib just babbling to himself for a good while before falling asleep. And sometimes, he throws everything in his crib over the side. And when you come in to give him back his pacifier and blanket, he says “uh oh” with the most adorable little smile. Heart. Melting.
When you ask him for a hug, he’ll walk over to you and put his arms at his side, and just lean in. Love. It.
The way he says turtle.
And more. . . mo mo mama. . .
And I don’t think I could ever forget, but how much I love him!
