Today, our sweet little guy turned 19 months....
So, we did the usual photo in the "big chair" in our living room.
I managed to get a couple of good ones -- without any trouble :)
And, just for fun, I took a photo of Marc and Luke together....Luke got real serious for this picture. But, for those of you who've been around Luke, this photo won't surprise you. What would it be like to have a photo of Luke WITHOUT sucking his thumb with the blanket?
Man -- do I ever LOVE the two guys I live with!!!!!!
This past month has been interesting....
**Luke got his first ear infection. We feel VERY fortunate that it took 18 months to get his first one. But, it's been kind of a nasty one to get rid of....He's been on an antibiotic basically the whole month. He has a dr's appt. this Wednesday to see if it's cleared up. Fortunately, he hasn't had a fever since late January. He hasn't been cranky about his ears, but we do notice him tugging at them quite frequently. And, he's still been sleeping very well through all of this process.
**Luke is starting to get better and better each day about following very simple commands. He'll go to the bathroom for his bath if we tell him to. He'll go to his bedroom when we say it's time for bed. We do NOT allow him to eat with his blanket (except in extreme circumstances), and so, when we tell him it's time to eat, he'll hand over his blanket to us. He's started to put Marc's dirty socks in the hamper after Marc comes home from work and changes (I know -- GROSS, but Luke doesn't seem to mind at this point)....
**Luke's gotten VERY picky and difficult with his eating. He mostly does O.K. for Marc or me -- because we're around him enough to know what he does. My parents have had him a couple of times over the last month, and he does not eat well for them. I think, though, it's because he'd rather play with them than eat. But hey -- what are grandparents for?
But, we do love this guy more and more each day :)
And, just for fun -- here's a photo of 7-month old Luke -- exactly one year ago today -- in the same chair.
Joyful and a little silly
