Lucas is THREE!!!
Weight: 29.5 lbs--------27.4%
Height: 38 inches-------54%
He is a healthy and happy little boy! He talks really well and talks a lot. He is learning his numbers and letters. He loves being social. He loves going to the library. He loves playing with his cousins and his friends. He never wants to leave places because he doesn't want to miss out. We have to sing him a song from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (Mr. Rogers' cartoon sequel) that says, "Choose one more thing to do and then it is time to go." We use lots of songs from that show to help Lucas. One song: "Grown ups come back" helps him go to nursery at church and have a babysitter. "When you're feeling mad and you want to roar, take a deep breath and count to four" is another gem.
Lucas loves Superheroes and Transformers. He is totally a boy. He loves turning anything into a gun. He loves trucks. He has lots of guys that he plays with, superheroes, rescue bots, and lego guys. He likes fighting and wrestling with other boys. He loves being outside, going to the park, and going on walks.
Lucas sleeps about 10-11 hours at night and still takes about a 2 hour nap. We have just started potty training. I read the book Potty Training in One Day. Since then he has been doing pretty well. And he is always so proud of himself when he does go. I tell him "I am so proud of you!" and he hugs me and says "I'm so proud of you too!" It is pretty funny.
We recently turned his crib (that still had the tent on it!) into a toddler bed. He is really proud of his bed and shows anyone that comes over. I was really worried that he would get out of it, but so far he stays put. He yells at us when he wakes up "Mommy, Daddy, I wake up!" At night he knows that he can only get out if he needs to use the potty. He usually yells out, "I need to go potty!" about 5 minutes after we already took him. We will work on that.
He is a great kid and makes us laugh. He knows how to entertain. We love you Lucas!
On the day of potty training, I wrapped a present of underwear (Superhero and Rescue Bots) and he opened it and was so pumped!
