Luke lately–17 months

Luke is growing up so fast! I know that every mother in the world thinks the same thing. . . but thankfully, each stage and age seems to be more fun than the last. Lately he has  just been growing, changing and doing so many new things. I wanted to write a post about a few of my favorite things that he is doing lately..  . so I will *hopefully* never forget about my Lukie at 17 months old!

He loves to read books. He will bring you a book and turn around, sit on his butt, and back up into your lap so you can read to him. So. adorable. Melts my heart every time. . . and so very often you can find me sitting on the floor in the kitchen, bathroom, master closet, reading him a book because that’s where he found me and I just can’t say no.


Whoa face. He has just started doing this recently, basically his whoa, what is that? or is this real life? or is this really happening? And he will look at you with his mouth in an “O” and big wide eyes.


Obsessed with trucks and buses and lawn mowers and vacuums.


We will be on a run, he is in the jogging stroller and he will say “lawn mower, lawn mower” and sure enough in that open garage down the street, you can just barely see a lawn mower. And the other day, I left him alone for literally 2 seconds and I came back and he was running down the street saying “lawn mower” towards a neighbor who was mowing her lawn. . .

Lion roar. He has started making animal sounds. And his lion roar is something that I hope I never, ever forget. He also does duck, cow, monkey, and sheep.


Loves his toy vacuum and lawn mower. If we are inside, he is dragging around his vacuum (clothing optional),


if we are outside, he is pushing around his lawn mower. literally obsessed.


Watching your child grow up is so hard. On the one hand, it is so fun to watch them grow and change and learn new things, but on the other hand, each stage is so fun that you wish you could hold onto it for just a little bit longer. Smile

  3. Love your updates, especially since my youngest is so close to Luke. She’s 17 months today! She loves to read too, although sometimes she gets impatient and starts flipping the pages before you’re finished reading. She’s just so excited to get to the next page! She’s also saying (or trying to say) lots of new words and phrases. My favorite right now: Oh my. And, yes, watching our children grow is so bittersweet. We’re excited to see them blossom but would love if they slowed down just a bit so we could savor the moments!

      It is so nice to compare and see what others are doing. Luke loves to just flip pages sometimes so I just read the words on the page quick as I can before he turns the page!!

  4. Oh how cute!! I love the little backward scoot reading bit – that’s adorable!

  5. Awww he is so cute. I love his o face!! I can’t imagine how hard it must be watching your child grow….I remember crying when I was about 13 because I thought my youngest brother was growing too fast. I can’t imagine how I’m going to be when I have my own- ha!

  7. He is such a cutie! I love that he loves to read! I was the same way when I was little (or so home videos tell me) — my play pen (remember those?) was always filled with tons and tons of books!

  11. What a little cutie!

    With my first, I remember thinking that the growing/changing would slow down after the first year. Wow, was I ever wrong. They just keep growing, way too quickly!

      Yes, I am quickly realizing that it is just going to keep going by faster and faster!! I try to take each night before bed to snuggle him and take a moment to appreciate his current size. 😉

  12. Oh my goodness he is so unbelievably cute! When my younger brother was little he was also obsessed with his lawn mower- silly little boys!
