Luke is twelve months old!
Sorry, he wants me to say he's ONE now.
Here are Luke's twelve month stats:
Height: 31.4 inches (94%)
Weight: 23 pounds (72%)
Head Circumference: 49 centimeters (100%)
I love how excited Luke gets when he's proud of himself. And, boy is he a noisy one. He squeals, has a deep belly laugh, and growls all throughout the day. Luke loves it when we imitate his sounds, and he also likes to imitate silly ones we make first. It makes for a very noisy and silly dinner sometimes.
Luke's teeth continue to come in twos. He's now got four on the top and two on the bottom.
Luke loves swimming in the tub. He'll get on his belly, put his face in the water and kick. There's definitely a strong protest when it's time to get out.
I don't spend a lot of time teaching sign language, but Luke can sign 'more,' 'all done,' and 'milk.' And, of course, 'one.'
This sweet boy is a hugger. We love when he'll lean into one of us for a hug.
He gives his stuffed animals hugs, and lately he's been pulling his books in close to give the characters in there a hug too. Such sweetness.
It is such an awesome thing to be the one primarily responsible for teaching our boys how to love. I am so lucky. And we are all so blessed that this rather big bundle of happiness is a part of our family!
