Halfway to Two!

18 months old and in just over 2 weeks he won't even be the baby in our family anymore!

We've watched him go from a crawling baby to a wobbly walker to a running toddler before our eyes.  And we've enjoyed {almost} every second of it :)

He loves the swings at the park...

And Eskimo kisses, aka "noses" are one of his specialties...
{With his Papa}
{With Aunt Lisa}
He loves to wear hats...

and he thinks he's hot stuff in Mama's sunglasses.

He loves his stuffed animals, aka "lovies" that his big brothers are constantly bringing to him...

He definitely isn't afraid to get dirty...

but {in my humble opinion} he sure does clean up well :)

He definitely has been able to hold onto his pacifier a LOT longer than his two big brothers did...

It must be that messy smiley face that charmed us into that one...

Or perhaps it's those sparkling blue eyes.

He loves animals... 

and blogging 
{Mama's been so tired lately that he's helping her out!}

making it near impossible to get a decent picture of all three boys together...

helping with the laundry...

pitching in to put away dishes...


and doing Arts & Crafts on the kitchen table!

We're thrilled that he seems to have overcome his extreme fear of costumed, fluffy characters...

because this past Christmas, I'm pretty sure he thought Santa was the devil.

Did I mention that he loves to SLEEP?  I know, pinch me... 12 hours straight every night!  And if we're not running here and there and everywhere for his big brothers, he'll nap all afternoon {though not in his highchair of course!}

When he plays, he really gets into his toys... literally.

And he has been told that he's got the moves like Jagger :)
 

  He's full of giggles, squeals and squeaks when he sees his dogs, runs to the door to greet Daddy at night, blows us kisses, charms me by calling "Mama!" a million times a day, and gives the best hugs.  As soon as he hears music, he does the funniest little dance.  He adores his biggest brother Sam, but sometimes is a "Baby Bully" with his bigger brother Jake.  Poor Jake gets so sad- we're working on overcoming this :(

   He has about a thousand nicknames- Lukers, Boo Bear, Bucas, Bubbas, the list goes on and on.  

One thing is for sure... we adore our Little Lukers!
And we're all anxiously awaiting to see how he'll respond to his new role of BIG BROTHER in just two weeks! xoxo

He'll do great as a big brother. Love all his pictures. In one I was thinking he looked so much like Jakers I had to look again. Growing up so fast.
