Two. Years. Old.

I can't believe I'm typing that! I can't believe my baby boy is 2!! (almost). I want to do this post now before the craziness of the weekend. Luke's doctor's appointment isn't until next week, so none of those boring stats at the moment.

Although I have definitely seen streaks of "terrible twos," for the most part I am very happy with Luke's behavior and personality and think he is so much fun to be around. He is usually very polite and says "yes, please" and "thank you" without being prompted most of the time. His vocabulary grows every single day and he is very chatty.

Luke can count to 10 all by himself, but only does it when he feels like it.  When we spell his name out loud sometimes he’ll tell us what letter comes next. 

One of his favorite words at the moment is MINE and it drives me CRAZY!!  When he wants something he’ll usually say “mine, please” and when someone is playing with something he wants he’ll tell them “my turn!” 

I really need to start writing things down as he does them because there are so many funny things that he says and does that I’m forgetting now!  One funny thing that happened this week was Tommy taught him how to chest bump and was trying to get him to say “take that, boy!” but Luke kept saying “take that, please!”  He loves to dance and will really get down if he’s in the mood. 

Tonight was the first of his three birthday celebrations.  Our immediate families came over for a cookout and Luke was so cute while we sang Happy Birthday I thought my heart was going to explode.  See for yourself…

He was also SO sweet while he was opening his presents.  Most of the time he would gasp or say WOW! before he even knew what it was!  He was spoiled rotten and has so many new toys to play with.

You will probably never understand how much love and joy you have brought into our lives over the past two years.  We are so proud of the little boy you are becoming and you amaze us and make us smile every single day.  Love you to the moon and back!!!!!
