Monthly Newsletter: Month Fifty One

Dear Lucas,

This month has been a really good one. You still have your emtional times, but generally we can work through them (usually by feeding you =)) Compared to last month, things are a million times better.

A couple of times this month you have wanted your hair spiky. It's been very cute. You are also more concerned about things matching.

We have finshed reading your first chapter book. You enjoyed it so much that you have started reading it again. If anyone has any suggestions on another chapter book we could read to Lucas, I'd love to hear them.

Things with Nathan are still up and down. Sometimes you guys get along well. You laughing and run and have fun. And other times your play "fighting" can get either one of you in trouble. Or sometimes he will laugh and you'll get mad becuase you think he's laughing at you. This makes me laugh, and then it makes Nathan laugh more and it's a bad scene. But I think this will continue for the next 10 years. You will have ups and downs with your brother.

Swimming lesson is going really well. You are going under the water and acting like a fish. You listen to your teacher very well, just as you do in preschool.

A couple of things happened this month that shows me how much you are growing up. The first thing is your first "gun". It's a nerf gun, which I know is no big deal. But it feels like a big deal to me. We have set some ground rules about not shooting people with it but the walls or "imaginary things". How long these ground rules will last, I don't know, but you are really really loving it. You also had dinner at a friends house this month. Not that I've never had dinner without you. But it was weird to have dinner with Nathan and not with you.

As you grow and as these things happen, it makes me treasure the times that things are normal. I know there will be a day when you have less and less dinners at home, so I'm enjoying all of the ones we have together.

love mom

I would also like to add that he did a great job playing the wii fit plus. I was amazed at how good he was in the bike riding, skateboarding and the marching band. We are all blessed to have him in our lives.
Thank you
