17 Months

Dear Lucas,

I know you're now officially 17 1/2 months, but if you'll go back and read our summer thus far, you'll see how busy we've been!

This month started out with some more holidays!  Mother's Day, Mimi's birthday and Memorial Day!  We got to see your Uncle Josh, Aunt Jana and your cousin Colt!  You all did a bunch of fun stuff together:)  You rode a horse for the first time and you went swimming!

You had so much fun!  However, you also started teething that weekend, so you were a little sickly:(  You had a fever and were real fussy.  Those were your only symptoms; until it was time to eat!

You became really picky for a few weeks and we were worried you'd never eat your normal faves again!  I'm sure it was because your gums were so sore, but it scared us for a little while.  Those canines still haven't popped in, but after about a week your appetite was back to normal!  Now you eat everything we do again...but we've added pineapples, chips and taquitos to your diet!  Your absolute favorite thing to eat, however, is cookies!!!!!!  You say "cookie" all the time!  You are quite the little cookie monster and you don't care what kind it'll eat it:)

You're still sleeping like a champ!  Your bedtime has been closer to 8p during the summer and you're sleeping til 8a every morning!  I'm glad the light when you go to bed hasn't affected you.  You nap everyday between 12p and 1p and sleep for 2-2/12 hours each time.  You are still a great car sleeper too!!  I love that about you:)

You have swam a lot this summer and you've been on lots of trips to the lake, to Pryor and to Tulsa to see Uncle Cal and Aunt Cassie!  We are so lucky to be able to spend our summers with you.  We have been so busy and been on many adventures!

You are now officially running everywhere, but your biggest accomplishment this month has been your vocabulary!  You say anything we say.  You repeat very well.  You know many animal sounds, many body parts and you love "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "The Wheels on the Bus".  You even do the motions with me.  We still laugh because you sometimes say your words at random times.  Our favorite is the other day in the bathtub you blurted out "goat"!  Haha:)  It was so funny!  You make us laugh all the time:)

You are still in size 4 diapers and 12-18 month clothes.  Some shirts you wear ar 2T, but your shorts are still 12 months.  You are so skinny!!!  You have the tiniest waist.  However, you are a ball of energy and always happy, so it's alright!

You still love to look at books and play with cars.  You love hitting your golf ball and sliding down your slide and you love rolling the ball back and forth.  Daddy loves that you can "play catch" together.  It's been his dream since we found out you were a boy!!!

We still have many adventures coming this summer and we are so glad you are going to be joining us:) You have such an easy-going personality and we just love spending time with you.

You're the sweetest little boy and you have really showed your affectionate side this month showering us with kisses and hugs at whim.  Most of the time we don't even have to ask for them:)

We love you so much and are so proud of the little boy you're becoming!

All our love,
Mommy and Daddy
