18 Months!

Okay, so a little late on the post, but we just had his check up on Wednesday.  Luke is in the 5th percentile for height and weight and the 50th for head circumference :)  A normal sized head on an itty bitty body.  He is such a little guy!  21 lbs, 13 oz and 31 1/2” long. 

Luke seems to be saying new words every couple of days and is starting to use his words to actually identify things like dog, car, ball, juice. 

His personality grows every day and he keeps us laughing.  He has starting doing karate kicks.  He’ll kick his leg and say “yah!”  He loves music and loves to dance. 

He is getting good at his puzzles and has one that he can put together by himself all the time, and one that he can get quite a few pieces in usually. 

He is generally a very good listener and I’ve been breaking the habit of automatically carrying him in everywhere we go and LOVE when I can get him out of the car and tell him to hold Mommy’s hand and we walk into a store or a restaurant hand in hand.  He just seems like such a big boy and he is so well behaved (most of the time.) 

He has been indulged twice this last week when he saw the cage of balls at Giant and started pointing and yelling “BALL!  BALL!”  He got my Mother one day and my sister a couple days later. 

And now, for the good stuff.  My child is the cutest thing to ever walk into Portrait Innovations :)

We went there last night to get pictures done to give to my MIL for her birthday.  The family is coming over to our house this evening to celebrate.  Well, we got there and were told that their printer is down!  So, then we had to spend $100.00 to get the CD so that I can go print some pictures today so that we have a gift for her!  Also, we got there at 5:20 for our 5:30 appt. and weren’t brought back until almost 6:30!  I’m pretty happy with the pictures they got, and I think the prices were decent, but the wait was not cool. 


  1. He is so cute! I love the pic where his hair is crazy :). Where are the weekly pregnancy updates ma'am?! ;)

  2. Awwww the pictures came out SO good!! If they made us wait for an hour, I can't say that Ryder would have looked that happy! That's awesome that he's starting to walk places for you now, I'm trying to work on that too!

  3. Yuck on the bad Portrait Innovations experience but the pictures look great!!! Can't believe the little guy is 18 months already.
