18 months old!

I can't believe Luke is 18 month old! He is such a BOY!! He has NO fear and thinks he can climb on anything!! He LOVES being outside and would probably live in his swing, if you'd let him. He is talking more. He now says....momma, grandpa, memaw (which sounds a lot like maw maw), ball, baseball, door, bye bye, hello, hi, bath, juice, cracker, cookie, bite, nana--for banana, (that's all I can think of at this moment...I know I'm leaving out a bunch!). He is wearing size 4 diapers and wears 24 month shirts and 18 month shorts and size 6 shoes! Luke can also show you the following body parts: nose, mouth, tongue, ears, eyes, teeth, belly and belly button! If you ask where he is, he immediately covers his eyes and plays peek-a-boo. Also, if he hears clapping or sees anyone clapping, he thinks he must do it, too!
Here are a few of his 18 month pictures. He is wearing his Masters golf shirt and hat (thanks to my good friend Sondae for getting them!).

Weekend in Oklahoma

This past weekend we took off with Memaw and Grandpa and went to visit family and friends in Oklahoma. Luke has had a really runny nose and a bad cough, but that didn't stop him from having fun! I figured it was just allergies and gave him benadryl, but that didn't seem to help. (He went to the dr. this morning....poor guy has a double ear infection!) We had a great time seeing lots of old friends at church on Sunday. Too bad Luke wouldn't cooperate and sit in church! Mommy had to take him, we played! Thankfully, mommy's best friend, Sonya came outside and kept us company after she played the organ! Most of the weekend was hanging out at Great Aunt Sue's house with all of the family. Too bad mommy didn't get the camera out and take any pictures!
Monday we headed out to where mommy went to school and where Memaw worked. Luke immediately saw all of the kids on the playground and thought he needed to join them. I swear, that boy will spend all day and night outside if he could! After the kids went inside, Grandpa took him out to play. Here are a few pictures of him playing on the playground...

We can't wait to see everyone again! And...don't can always come down here and visit us!!

Today was a great day!! We woke up and found the Easter Bunny had visited our house. Luke got a basket with a few goodies...some hot wheels, chocolate and cute baseball shoes! Grandpa made us his wonderful omelets and then we headed to church. After church, we ate lunch at home before heading off to the Ft. Worth Zoo. Grandpa bought Luke a bunny cake for dessert!Luke loved watching the white tiger walking in front of him. He kept waving at him!!Luke took the stick of food from me and starting feeding the bird himself! After I got the bird to stand on the stick, Luke tried to grab the bird and hold him!! He thought the peguins swimming up to him were cool!Probably his favorite thing of the day...riding the carousel!!! Look at that smile!We all had a great time at the zoo! I hope this can become a tradition for us each Easter!

Pink Eye!!! Our house has been infected with Pink Eye!! I woke up on Wed. with a red eye. I wasn't sure if it was pink eye or not, so I went on the work and had the nurse look at it. She didn't think it was pink eye, but everyone else did. Luckily, the Dr. could get me in on my break and sure enough....Pink Eye! Of course, Luke woke up yesterday morning with it. He looks miserable. His eye is mostly red underneath and looks like he's been beat up. He has tons of goop coming out and it keeps matting up. He has medicine and hopefully his will be clear this afternoon.
Since he hasn't been on the eye drops for 24 hours, I decided to keep him home from babysitter again today (luckily Memaw and Grandpa came yesterday). I didn't want anyone else getting it! But, since he stayed home, he's missing Easter with his friends. :( I did take cupcakes to the babysitter, since I had already made them. I think they turned out pretty cute!!
We hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing Easter!!
