We have new tricks!

ABOVE IS LUKE OPENING BIRTHDAY GIFTS. HE'S ONE!
ABOVE IS LUKE JUST BEFORE CAKE TIME...CLAPPING FOR THE GROUP, SO HAPPY YOU CAN BARELY TELL THAT HE HATED THIS HAT!


Luke has mastered three new skills this week and is very proud of himself. You should see his smile when he does his walking backwards trick. He thinks that is super cool, although he has not yet learned the importance of seeing what is behind him before heading that way...luckily he has had no accidents yet. Then, he definitely has a first word - Bye. He waves and says "bye" quite enthusiastically and completely in context. When you get to the door at daycare, the door opens and there he is waving and telling his friend "bye". Then he also does this trick anytime someone opens the garage door with a purpose. He truly gets that one. Last but not least is his head nod, side-to-side. He thinks it's cool regardless of the fact that he inevitably attempts this one mid-walk, loses his balance and then gets back up to start all over. It is a little routine that we get a kick out of...I imagine the days of adding a word to that move, "no", are not far behind! Still adorable, still adjusting to the time change, as are we!
