Luke at 2
Luke turned 2 at the end of June. He is a big, busy two year old and embracing everything that comes with being 2. We have already experienced some signs of the beloved “terrible 2s.” He had it bad for a few days- major tantrums and meltdowns but seems to evened out for now.
At his well-child, my sister was bragging to our ped that he could count in Spanish. This was news to me, but sure enough, he can count to 10 in Spanish. The funniest part- he says,”uno, dos, taco, cinco” etc.
He also can count to 10 in English. He is bilingual! He can count past 10. He gets a little hung up around 15, then just shouts out 20!
He found Titus, the little toddler that can make almost any basketball shot, on YouTube. Now he is obsessed with basketball. We just got him a little goal for his room and he loves to “play baketball”
He loves to give high fives. He holds his little arm behind his head and says, “high fibe, momma.”
he learns a lot from his big brother and can shoot a Nerf gun, breathe like Darth Vader, shoot webs like Spider-Man, and fight with light sabers. He is all boy.
He loves to be outside. He likes bubbles, chalk, baseball, climbing the fort, swinging and his Little Tykes car.
He really likes beef jerky and says, “I want jerky. Gobble gobble” which cracks me up. Apparently jerky reminds him of turkey which makes him gobble.
He really loves the iPad. He can unlock it, open the app he wants and start playing, totally unassisted. He really is amazing.
he listens to you and responds appropriately. “Luke, where are you?” “In here!” “Luke, what’d you do at school?” “Play outside, play.”
I feel like everyday he says or does something I had no idea he could do.
There is something about Luke that just warms my soul. He has gorgeous little curls that frame his head when he’s been playing hard and gets sweaty. His hair is a perfectly amazing mix of blondes and browns that I can’t pay my stylist enough to replicate. He still has sweet round cheeks and eyes, and looks over his shoulder with a mischievous little grin. He loves to make silly sounds, noises and faces. He has the softest, sweetest voice, and when he says anything with the word “momma” in it, I just melt.
Luke weighs 36 lbs and is 38.5″ long. He is 100% in all categories. He got glasses just before his second birthday and is absolutely adorable in them. Fact. We actually cannot go anywhere without someone telling us how cute he is. He loves his brother and just wants to play with him, although Jack wants nothing more than for his little brother to leave him alone. Luke just chases after jack and does everything Jack does.
Luke is a little baby angel, and we are enjoying 2 and looking forward to what else this year has in store for him!
