And he's off...

I'm so excited to say that our little Luke is walking! Over the past few days he has been getting more confident in letting go and walking on his own. He still takes his time and holds on to things along the way to brace himself but he is doing great! We are thrilled!!!!! He turns 15 months tomorrow so we were ready!

He is such a joy to us and I have really been enjoying this age and all that he is doing. Here are some of his new "tricks"...

-He can shake his head yes in response to a question.
-He is now dancing when he hears music. He shakes his head and bounces his legs, with a huge smile of course. It's too cute.
-He now has 11 teeth including all 4 molars and the 12th one is about to break through!
-He had his first cup of orange juice and seemed to like it.
-He still won't drink milk. Jacob still doesn't either so I'm not sure what this is all about.
-He still is a great eater. He loves cheese, black olives, chicken, broccoli, green beans, most fruits, and beans to name a few.
-He loves to open and close cabinet doors, over and over and over! :)

I'm sure I've left off a few things but that is what comes to mind over the last month. We leave for our vacation to Destin soon so I'll be sure to post pictures once we are back.

Here he goes

Loves the cabinet doors

Needing a break


  1. Yea Luke!!! That's so exciting. Your back can have a rest now! Luke needs to teach Jackson how to walk now that he's going.

  2. Woo hoo!! Luke is just the cutest thing ever! You can tell by his face he is just so proud of himself for taking off! LOL! I am so enjoying getting to see all "the little ones" of yours, Dana's and Lauri's grow up!! Can't wait to add that Correa kid to the group! LOL! Love to all!

  3. I was going to say the same thing as Tanna -- that Luke looks SO proud of himself! His smile just warms my heart. Yay, Luke!!

  4. Look at that precious little munchkin go! Can't wait to see him show off his new talents for his Aunt Amanda next weekend!
