12-17 months old! Finally a new Luka post!!

Luka is almost 18 months now! It's really crazy how time does fly! This age is definitely my favorite age so far, minus the little tantrums when he doesn't get his way. Everyday he does or says something new and fun! He is growing up so quickl! Luka is a really good boy and is very friendly and adventurous.
Things Luka says:
uh oh (every time he drops anything! it's so cute!)
bye bye
B (he calls me B, he can also point out and say B in the alphabet)
cheese (not for the food, for when he takes pictures=) )
thank you
bad (he thinks our puppy's name is bad! haha)
beep beep
draw (he loves to draw pictures and draw on walls lol)
ouch and owie ( he points out ouchies and blows on them and kisses them, and he also has imaginary ouchies that he likes us to blow on and kiss.
says "mooo" when you ask him what a cow says
(i might have forgotten some so i will have to come in and edit and add some more later)
 Things Luka does
Points at eyes, ears, mouth, nose, head, feet, toes, hands, legs, bum bum (butt), belly button
slides down the slide at the playground all by himself
says his prayers (our favorite! he folds his arms and closes his eyes tightly and mumbles some silly words and the claps for himself afterwards)
turns on and off all of the lights for us
makes every sound effect for motorcycles, helicopters, airplanes, horns, construction trucks etc. 
does summer-saults
walks in the ocean by himself and tries to swim
finds me pretty sea shells
waters our plants in the garden
shares his food
is nice when we tell him to be, instead of hitting and slapping he will pet or hug
hugs and kisses
blows kisses
waves goodbye and says hi to everyone, especially at the grocery store
pretends to be a puppy, on all fours growling and panting
Things Luka LOVES
motorcycles, helicopters, airplanes, construction trucks, busses, semi trucks, firetrucks, ambulance
his mommy and daddy, especially daddy when he gets home from work
his grandma
chilli and rice with avocado
minestrone soup
pretty much any musical instrument actually
bath time
playing with cars
his puppy Rambo

I love this kid!!!!!! =)

Christmas 2010!! It was definitely a success! We had such a great year and we are so grateful for everything we were blessed with, throughout the year and for Christmas! I got what I wished for and so did Luka and Poata, we are all happy campers =) I loved Christmas so much this year because Luka knew what was going on and was excited to play with each present he received which made it so much more fun! We shared Christmas morning with my mom, step-dad, brother, sister and cousin Rama. Later that evening we had a big Christmas dinner. Unfortunately we missed the Honolulu City Lights this year. *big frown* We planned on going Christmas Eve which is a tradition of our but Luka was really sick that night and it was pretty stormy out so we skipped it. But we did do some other festive adventures like driving around to point out our favorite Christmas Lights and going to the Haleiwa Christmas Parade and baking cookies for Santa and going to our Ward's Christmas party, among other things. I hope you all had a fantastic Holiday season as well!!! xoxo
