Every month I used to share a list of all of Lucas’ milestones, but I haven’t complied one in a while. Every day Lucas shows me another wonderful side to his personality. His likes and dislikes are as complex as yours and mine. He’s amazing.
Here is what I know and appreciate about my son today:
Lucas doesn’t have to be the center of attention. He is much happier being left alone to do his own thing. He’s a true observer, curious and quiet, taking in his surroundings, unless he’s the only child around and then, all bets are off!
Lucas is very loving IF and when the mood strikes him. He enjoys giving “pat-pats”, especially to babies and stuffed animals and nothing melts my heart more than hearing him say, “Mommy, come up here” when he wants to be picked up.
Lucas loves blueberry bagels, blueberry scones, blueberry waffles, blueberry yogurt, blueberry cereal bars and blueberry muffins, but will NOT eat a blueberry.
Lucas loves water in all forms; he lives for bath time, swimming pools, playing with his water table in the back yard, charging fearlessly for the ocean and diving into fountains.
Lucas loves sitting in his “special” chair to watch TV, singing the “ABC’s” no matter where we are, throwing dirt, meticulously removing wrappers from crayons and dancing. You should see his “hotel dance”.
Lucas’ favorite past time I would have say is playing with his Thomas & Friends trains and is ability to identify each one is astounding.
Lucas’ favorite color is yellow, favorite movie is Cars, favorite meal is macaroni and cheese, favorite dessert is M&M’s, favorite book is Where The Wild Things Are and smiles brighter than the sun when he plays with Play-Doh.
Lucas loves older children and if they give him the time of day, he will follow them around like a little lost puppy dog and talk about them for weeks.
Lucas pretty much refuses to pose for the camera and with nearly 6000 photos of him in iPhoto, I suppose I don’t blame him.
Lucas will ask for his lovey first and then “Mommy” if he hurts himself or bonks into something. I’m not happy with this, but I understand.
Lucas will march over to his lime green time out chair when asked. Shocking, I know!
Lucas isn’t a fan of meat. Occasionally we can get him to eat turkey and only recently (as of last week) has he started enjoying hot dogs.
Lucas is afraid of four things:
- Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage ride at Disneyland.
- A creepy red mask at a Mexican restaurant we used to like to frequent.
- Loud fire alarms like the one that went off repeatedly at our hotel in Hawaii on our first night of vacation.
- Roller coaster rides.
As you can imagine, this list could go on and on and on, but I’ll
spare you keep some things to myself. Lucas appears to be a typical two year old, but he is my two year old.
