21 Months

Dear Lucas,

You are now 21 months!  I cannot believe how big you are getting...please stop!  Although, it's just an amazing thing to watch you grow and change and I'm blessed that I get to do that everyday.  You are so smart and so sweet:)

This month we moved to Aunt Cassie's and Uncle Callen's!  We are much closer to school and to your sitter.  It's much easier on you in the mornings and in the afternoons.  It only takes us about 15 minutes to get places, instead of 45!!  You are absolutely loving seeing Aunt Cassie everyday.  We wish to see Uncle Callen everyday too, but he's really busy with football.  It will be over soon, though.  Speaking of football, you went with us to the Union/Jenks football game.  You loved seeing the balls and you liked hearing the bands play.

You love sitting in this chair at Aunt Cassie's and because of Mrs. Kelly's, you love to color!  On your magna doodle or with chalk:)  You have made several more crafts at Mrs. Kelly's and you are really learning your colors.  You know orange, yellow, purple, pink, white, and black really well.  Blue, green and red are hard, though.  I don't know why?!  You'll figure it out, I'm sure!!

This month your biggest change has been speaking in full sentences and being able to tell us what you want!  It's amazing.  It just started in the past few weeks.  You'll tell Mama, "I want juice" or "I want chalk" or "I want more" or "I want to go night-night".  It's amazing!  When you get home from Mrs. Kelly's with your craft, you go through and tell me everything you made.  You'll say, "Mama, I paint leaves" or "Daddy, I make a mouse".  It's precious and I hope you are always this excited to tell us what you did at school:)

You make us laugh everyday.  You get so excited about things you see or things you've played with or things you done and sometimes it's hard for you to get it out!  You're just so excited so you'll say, "I see, I see, I see, I see...BALLS!"  It's funny:)  You love exploring and you've started to love climbing.  You love bath time and you love your toys.

You have gone up to size 18-24 months in clothes and size 5 in diapers.  You are definitely getting taller and when Daddy weighed you, you weighed 25 lbs!!!  You are still sleeping great, and like it says earlier, you sometimes ask to go night-night.  You get your paci, Geoffrey and your blanket and you'll walk toward your room.  It's the sweetest thing in life.  You're just such a good boy.

We've gone to a couple of different churches since moving to BA and you've done great in the nurseries.  When we go to pick you up, they want you to stay!  They talk about what a good boy you are and how cute you are...they don't even know you and they love you.  We hope you always stay sweet and lovable.  You are learning boundaries, though, and we are trying to teach you patience.  Because you can tell us what you want, you want it right then and we are learning that important Fruit of the Spirit.

You are all boy!  You love playing outside, any type of ball, eating ice-cream, getting messy, crawling under things, riding on Daddy's shoulders, wrestling, looking at things upside-down, pumpkins, and playing peek-a-boo!!

You are sweet too, though.  You love holding Mama's hand, you say "yuv you" all the time, you give kisses and hugs without us even asking, and you still love to sit in my lap and listen to Mama sing.  Your favorite right now is "The Wheels on the Bus".  You also love helping with little chores around the house.  You always put up your chalk or another toy when you want to get a new one out, you love using the broom, and you love helping Mama move clothes from the washer to the dryer.  You're such a good helper and we hope you always keep those traits.

We know we say this in every letter, but we are so proud of you!  You are a great toddler and we are lucky to have you.  We know God entrusted your life to ours and we couldn't be more honored.  We love you so much, little man!

All our love,
Mommy and Daddy
