Sweet 16 (months)!!

Luke turned 16 months old on Tuesday, May 28th.  And oh, man, is he getting to be a big boy.  No longer do I see this little baby, but I am seeing a full on little boy.  When did this happen?  I have no idea!

He has become such the climber- he can climb on & off the couch, tries to get in his highchair when he wants to eat, and into the stroller when he's ready to go. 

Look at me- I'm on the couch!!
Feed me!  Now! 

He can be as sweet as can be but he can also turn on you in a flash if he doesn't get his way right then and there.  Oh, dear.

We have been keeping busy with friends, baby showers, watching the Pacers games.  We went to the Indianapolis Zoo, had playdates at the park,  went to the Pacers pep rally and got pictures with Boomer, Rik Smits and Billy Keller, celebrated cousins' birthdays and so on.  We survived a week without daddy as he was in TX for his nerd conference.  But all and all, it's been a wonderful May! And June will be just as busy with graduation parties and Grandma & Grandpa's 40th wedding anniversary. 

Charlie's 1st birthday party!! 

Luke is still super busy when trying to change him, and doesn't like to be told no.  He flirts with all the pretty girls. He has also started waving at strangers and going 'hi!' when we are running on the Monon.    And he really started noticing his curls b/c he will mess with his hair. 
                                           Claire's 9th birthday - Ruby was taking a nap!

He says 'banana'  'breakfast bar' 'milk' 'water'  'apple'- or at least we know that is what he is saying.  Still loves cottage cheese, running around crazy, books, wears 12- 18 month size clothes,  Crocs,  gets so hot and sweaty when outside, likes the stroller and saying 'woof, woof' when he sees doggies.
Anxiously awaiting Baby Boy Armstrong for another little buddy.  Saw sweet Maggie Anne last week and need to go see Baby Grace.  Awww...babies, babies, babies.  Hopefully it will be our turn for #2 soon, but until then, just enjoying my little buddy!!!

15 months old!!

We just got back from Luke's 15 month appointment- and he's growing!

Weight: 24 lbs - 43%
Height:  31 1/4 inches - 55%
Head:     47.4 - 56%

I always like our appointments so we can talk w/the doctor and nurses and just make sure everything is ok.  We will go ahead with the urologist and get things done, he had 2 shots that he was more upset about before they actually poked him.  Then a long hug and a graham cracker made him all better!  Just need to get him to actually start saying some words besides 'uh-oh!' and 'oh no!'.  But he does like to babble. And he knows what you are saying and takes commands well.  Blows kisses and loves to run up to you and go 'up!'.   Such a sweetheart.

Great sleeper (yay!) and great eater!  He really pays attention to the outside noises and the cars going by when he's in the carseat. Still a wiggly worm when it comes to diaper & outfit changes. 

The Onesie says it all!
This picture was from last night on the porch.  He was sporting his Pacers wrist band as we watched them go up 3-2 in the Playoffs last night vs. Atlanta!  Game 6 on Friday.  Go Pacers!  
Play date tomorrow and Monday.  Weekend at my parents & with the Booths for an early Mother's Day.  Should be fun!  We've been having great weather.  We went to the park and had a picnic Tuesday night.  He loved to run around and see all the other kiddos.
Love this boy!
