Luke is 19 months old!

Today Luke turned 19 months old. He's really turning into quite a little person! Several friends from my moms' group at church suggested that I write down all the words he can say at some point, so here goes:

  • Daddy
  • Mommy
  • Hailey ("Lee-lee")
  • dog ("dah" or "DOOOOOOOH") like you would say "dough."  There's a long emphasis on the O.
  • school ("coo")
  • shoe ("sue" a very s sound on this)
  • tree ("tee" with a point at a tree)
  • night night ("ni-ni")
  • bye
  • hi
  • ball ("bah")
  • spoon ("spoo")
  • car ("ca")
  • sit (to the dogs)
  • go
  • me
  • mine
  • no (one of his favorites!)
  • bath (more like "ba" but he says it in context)
  • Grandpa ("pa-pa")
  • Grandma ("na-ma")
  • Nannie ("nah-nee")
  • Robin ("Ba-ba"... we joke that she's Aunt Bob)
  • Meme
  • Amen ("A-bee"... always at the end of a prayer)
  • Cold (Ko)
Many of these words have an up-swing in the sound.  Like Nah-nee will always end up higher in tone.  There are probably more that we're not quite recognizing yet, too! He also likes to sing in church when we sing hymns, even though he doesn't know all the words yet.

A day at the park

We had some beautiful Texas winter weather and decided to stop by a park for a while so Luke could run around. He has been on a slide before, but wasn't really confident about going down by himself... until now. He went up the playscape and down the slide like a CHAMP!
