He's 5

Luke is 5 today, hard to believe how fast time flies.

Luke loves swimming, and he is becoming more confident every time we go.
He can swim underwater very well and loves jumping in.
Now that he is tall enough to touch in the shallow end
he feels like he can conquer anything, although
he is still cautious. He loves the water.

His love of the water extends to the tub.
If Luke is tired, cranky, sick, or bored put him in the bath and he gets a whole new attitude.
Owen has taken a bath or two with him when I need to get him clean.
Luke feels super special as a big brother holding his baby in the tub.
Owen loves the water too but isn't so sure in Luke's arms.

Luke loved the waterpark this past weekend. He is still tired from all the fun.
This was the leap frog lily pads, he loved conquering them.
Sometimes he fell in on purpose imitating one of the kids favorite shows WipeOut.

We love our 5 year old, he loves legos, bionicles, and anything Anna wants to do. He is equally played with by Beau and Anna and is a little lost with them back in school. He can't wait for preschool to start on Wednesday and loves making new friends. He still loves to play with my hair and although it drives me crazy someday I'm gonna miss it. His smile lights up the room and he can be the life of the party. Luke can turn anything into a toy including his hands and he is never quiet. He may grow up to be a sound effects man because he sure is good at it although he spits a lot making all those noises. He wants to be an ice cream scooper, a popcorn man and then a pilot when he grows up. I figure the first two jobs will help pay for college.
Happy Birthday to our Monkey.
He still gives the best monkey hugs.
