22 months!

Well, the second birthday is fast approaching!

This last month has been such a joy with Luke. He is acquiring new words and making short sentences everyday. It is so amazing to see how much he can pick up in such a short time!

Luke is loving letters and colors right now. He points out objects and tells us what color they are. Tonight at dinner for example, Nathan asked Luke what color his spoon was. He answered, "Geen!" Green it was. Then he pointed to my shirt and said, "pink!" He went around thr room naming several other colors.

The longest word that I have heard from him is "bumblebee," said just like it should be. He saw the bumblebee in his Magic "scoo bus" (School Bus) book that he adores.

His favorite book has been Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss. He almost has it memorized. I read on page to him and he says the next page to me. I am so amazed!

Since it is summer time, we have been outside in the pool a lot! Luke loves going in the "wader." We swim in our pool, in friends pools, or at the local splash parks. They are all fun.

I am planning on taking Luke to an allergy specialist soon. He has had another bout of stomach issues this week. I am not sure what is causing it exactly, but my hunch is that it is milk. He seems to be able to process other dairy products like cheese and yogurt, etc... (thanks be to God), but not milk. I can hardly digest milk myself.

This whole month, we have been blessed to have Grammy in town. Luke has enjoyed her immensely, and it was sad to say goodbye yesterday. He still doesn't really understand goodbyes, but we will hopefully see Grammy again in August.

Well, that's all for now. I'll try to get some pictures up later. I am so tired- it has been a busy month!
