Here he is trying out his cousin's toys. One was too big and one was just right.
Here is Lainey with Uncle Scott. It looks like they are in a staring contest, but she was telling him how she hurt her hand.

Luke has also become a "little" obsessed with 2 of his books. The first is his "Colors" book. A friend of Scott's family gave it to him and it has sea animals to help illustrate the colors - red crab - orange fish - that sort of thing. But the animals also come out like puzzle pieces which he loves. The only problem is the only one that has loosened up enough for him to get out by himself is the blue octopus. So when we get to that one he will pull it out, but we have to put it back in because he can't just yet. As you can imagine he will do this over and over. I don't even think he can get tired of it, he just gets distracted by other things.
The other book is from his Aunt Rah-Rah (Sarah) and of course it is about dinosaurs. So we will read that 6 page book over and over. Last night I got tired of reading it so I asked Luke to read it to me. He then started to point to each of the dinosaurs on the page and say something about each one. It was very cute!!
One last thing - last night I was trying to get a candid photo and Scott and Luke playing, but as soon as the flash went off Luke looked up and said "Cheese". It was too precious! We hope you are all having a great week.

Here are some pictures from the waiting room before you get called back. He liked crawling and falling all over these foam mats.
The next picture is of Luke and his nurse that was in the room with us. The faces make it seem bad but they were actually happy at the time, I just snapped the picture a little too late.
Last but not least the rocking chair the "nurse" sat in was tons of fun for Luke too.

I finally got some of Luke "parrot" words on video. You will want to turn the volume up because his voice is soft, but be careful because that crazy woman with the camera - her voice is booming!
Luke has also become affectionate. He will hug and hang all over Rudy, and even kiss him. Scott and I will get the hugs where he runs into your arms and your heart just melts. For a while now he will pat us on the arm or back when we hold him, just like we do to him, it is very cute! The kisses he gives vary from lips closed to mouth wide open and slobber all over. He has started giving kisses when you ask for them, but not every time.I have also learned the hard way that sometimes he wants something specific to eat. I used to be able to pull anything out of the pantry to give him a snack, but now he doesn't always want what I pick out, he will stand in the pantry and whine until I figure out what he wants. We are trying to work on the whining, but it is very slow in helping.
Here is one of his Valentine's Day shirts. He is also sitting in a chair he got for his birthday.
