Is it strange that I want to brag on what Luke is doing? This kid is so impressive to me. For those who haven't picked up on the million-and-one posts about our alliance with the Allen-Short family, Luke was born one day before Xander, and his birth was attended by the same midwife. His older sister Ruby goes to Sabot and I met his parents just before the babies were born and bonded with them over the trials and tribulations of sleepless nights and other things having to do with adding a new person to your family. Adam and I have been swapping kids on Thursdays and Fridays for somewhere close to a year, and let me tell you, he and Xander are like brothers. They're thick as thieves and the most social and communicative 21.5-month-olds I've ever met.
Luke has mad skillz, I tell you. See that stack of cars? He did that himself, over and over, perching each one on top of the last, using the wheels to line them up. Impressive. And the goggles? Also done by himself. It was the funniest thing, he would prop them on his forehead, then pull them down over his eyes, then back to the forehead, back to the eyes. That might not sound like much to you, but trust me, that's a pretty awesome skill for a not-yet-two-year-old. Way to go, Lukey Boy!
