Luke Lately- 13 Months

Every month I find myself saying “THIS IS MY FAVORITE AGE!” (Yes, all caps). And every month it just gets more fun. I seriously love the stage Luke is in right now. Not sure if it can get better?

It's June in Japan which means lots of rainy days. Have you ever seen a child discover a puddle for the very first time? It is priceless! Luke went from timid, careful step to full blown puddle sitting and splashing in seconds— true childhood bliss right there, and every puddle along the way was just the greatest thing. This boy loves water, always has. 

The park is still our sanctuary and Luke’s favorite place to be. He started RUNNING this month- he goes full speed ahead, not looking down only forwards and goes faster than his little legs can carry him (which has ended up with a couple big goose-eggs as a result). He is chasing birds too which he calls "dog-dogs" and loves playing ball. Dad is his favorite, and leaving for work each day is becoming harder and harder and more apparent for him. 

When we are home, you can usually find Luke in his kitchen cabinet.  He has turned into quite the "house-elf" collecting his precious items and storing them away and pulling them out and storing them again over and over. In the cabinet today is his beloved orange sippy cup, empty cinnamon container you can twist, his musical train, kitchen tongs and a spoon, a toy laptop from Nana, and two balls.

This month Luke had a minor surgery and was very brave and did well! He also got a few big molars, and lots, and lots of mosquito bites.... he gets bites every night? WHY?! Probably because he has the sweetest blood and sweetest soul. . . 

Such a cheese.
