This was one of those moments that takes a parent by surprise. I walked around the corner and saw this happening, so we grabbed the camera and caught it. (Please ignore my lame comments on the video.)

Luke, you are such a BOY!
Need I say more?
(Picture explanation: He thought it was so funny to put the flashlight in his pants and make them light up. I can't remember what exactly he said, but I remember it cracked me up and made me think "You are such a boy!" This thought is thought pretty much everyday, sometimes several times in one day, thanks to events like this one.)
Luke is a ball of energy. He goes goes goes until he crashes. I'm working on finding productive ways for him to use that energy so he doesn't get himself into trouble (He likes to rip and smash and draw on everything). His new favorite toy is Magnetix - yes they're dangerous if you swallow them but we're willing to take that risk. Along with that energy he has a lot of love to give. If Seth is crying he'll go lay down next to him and start singing to him (which usually calms Seth down - that boy LOVES music.) He loves to give hugs and protect us from the Decepticons (the bad transformers for those of you who don't have little boys/husbands around to teach you the difference) Aside from his toys, some of Luke's favorite things are: ice cream cones, string cheese, playing with his big sister, following and copying his daddy, helping cook/bake (and licking the cookie dough bowl), reading stories, building things, painting. He can drive me crazy, but I'm still nuts about him. I love that boy!
Here he is after sining to Seth
He's a very smiley baby. Maya and Luke love trying to make him laugh. A few days ago he started clapping his hands together. It's so fun to watch him grow. He is definitely a momma's boy (for now at least). As soon as he sees me I always get a big smile and he reaches out for me. My arms are worn out from having him in them all day, but I'm enjoying the snuggling while it lasts.
