Dear Luke, 24 months

Dear Luke,

2 years old.  Wow.  You are so big.  You are learning so much and growing too fast!  You have the sweetest heart of any kid I know.  It is so welcoming and tender.  You say "HI!" to everyone and want to know everyone's name.  You bring joy to anyone who is around you and people cannot help but notice your smile and sweet nature.
In the very near future you are going to be a big brother. Something I've been thinking about lately is how God chose you to be our first child.  That's pretty special and it wasn't by accident.  I am so lucky to have a big sister,  I look up to her so much and learn from her all the time.  I pray God gives you a wonderful friendship with your little brother, I pray you will have love and protection for him, and that you will want to be an example for him.
What an incredible responsibility and honor you have, Luke.  God knew you would be up for the challenge but you should also know it's a HUGE blessing.  You will be one awesome big brother buddy.  We are so proud of you.
Happy Birthday sweet boy!!!

 gotta have a Luke sandwich!!!

Pool Days

Child, you are fearless around water.  Your first time at the pool this summer you showed no fear.  You hopped right in and just expected to float.  Jumping in and out of the baby pool, getting your face wet, learning how to go under water.  There was no stopping you. 
After the baby pool's newness wore off, you moved on to other areas.  Mostly the grass, the water fountain, the drain where the yucky stuff collects, the flowers, and chairs.  Pretty much everywhere but the actual pool.
Being 8 months pregnant, it has not been easy keeping up with you.  Thank goodness for Nana!  She does a great job keeping track of you and snatching you up before you walk right in the big pool.
I am very pleased to say that in the last couple weeks you've become a lot more interested in the pools actual purpose, swimming! You are becoming a great little swimmer.  You are enjoying the pool a lot more and like to float out there all on your own.  You're learning to kick and paddle and it is just too much fun to watch you go!  I took you to the pool by myself last week (35 weeks pregnant) and we (meaning I) did great. 

 Your favorite time of day.... SNACK TIME!
I am loving these summer days with just the 2 of us.  We've spent many many days at our neighborhood pool and I am so grateful to have it!  Next summer you'll have a little brother to chase you around.  You can teach him how to put his face in the water and how to swim! We are so blessed, Luke!
