Warm nights and funny phrases

Today was BEAUTIFUL in western Washington. One of those days where everyone's steps are just a little lighter. After a trail race this morning on beautiful (not to mention steep!) Cougar Mountain and a celebration for my Grandma's birthday, Roger, Luke and I stayed outside until Luke's bath-time. Here are a few pictures of our evening outside:

You can see remnants of Grandma Jeri's cake on Luke's shirt. He was mid-sentence of my favorite sentence: "I yuv you."

Luke can finally steer his motorized school bus! This is ideal to me having to turn the bus around every time he crashed!

Happy boy.

I absolutely love watching Luke's language skills evolve. I love getting a glimpse into how his little brain is making sense of the world around him. He is beginning to initiate sentences more rather than repeat what he hears others say. Like a conversation — so cool!

My favorite is when I hear him (or overhear him) using phrases that are typically used by adults:
  • "Hmmm ... Let's see now."
  • "Maybe in a little while" or "just a little bit longer"
  • "I cannot believe it!" (although I may have to attribute that one to Little Einsteins, not his parents)
  • When playing with a telephone, "Hi! How ya doing? I'm good. Okay, bye!"
  • "We could do that. That be so fun!"


  1. Sentences, fun! I cannot wait to hear sentences (not wishing away the time, though!).

    Luke is such a cutie. I could kiss all over his face in that last pic. He couldn't be more adorable.

    Warm weather, ahhhh. I know the feeling of never ever wanting to go inside when it's like that. We were like that yesterday, too.

    Smooches to the cutie! xo
