Funny Luke

Last weekend Luke was walking around the house in my shoes. At first he was in the kitchen walking around. After we took note and started laughing he hammed it up and started walking all over. Luke has a great sense of humor. A single action or a look is enough to generate laughter.

3 Year Checkup

Tuesday, April 24, 2012 0 comments
This morning Mom took Luke for his 3 year checkup. Other than a double ear infection he is doing fine. At his 2 year checkup the doctor made note of one of his eyes. It was something along the lines of one reacting slower to light than the other. We couldn't see any issue and the doctor didn't seemed overly concerned. She checked it again this time around and everything was fine so there's a trip to a specialist we won't have to make.

Luke's values in height and weight were:
  • Height: 38 inches
  • Weight 35.8 lbs
The height is the 70th percentile and weight is 90th percentile. Luke's height increased 2 inches over last year and weight increased just under 4 lbs. To compare against Alyce she was 37 inches and 30 lbs at 3 years. Luke is going to be quite the bruiser when he gets older.

What I don't get is how Luke's weight can be increasing. The kid isn't eating anything. His breakfast is usually pretty thin, eats crackers and cheese for lunch, and about half time time refuses to eat dinner. Maybe he's sneaking some candy in bed at night.  That or he's losing fat and gaining bone.

Finally he had one vaccination.

Tonight as I'm walking out of Luke's after putting him to bed he says "goodnight daddy I love you".

Heart melting.

In Awe

Today was Opening Day at Six Flags. Luke is going to be three years old shortly and needed a season pass like Mom, Alyce, and myself. The downside of that besides the cost was that he needed his picture taken, just like everyone else in the park. The line for Season Pass Processing stretched all the way to Terre Haute. I stood in line most of the time. Towards the end of the line the rest of the family joined me. While standing and waiting Luke was in awe of the Excaliber ride going through its cycle. It kept his attention long enough to snap a set of pictures.

I think Luke is going to be the Amusement Park Rider of the family. He is enamored with roller coasters and is pretty much fearless.
