Five Things I Love About Lucas – almost 18 months

5 Jun

1) Pretty much any food that he isn’t interested in eating is described as “hot” and promptly pushed away, regardless of the actual temperature.  Actual hot food is regarded cautiously and blown on vigorously.  Today, I told him the oven was hot and to stay away, and he stood across the room blowing in my direction.

2) Whenever you ask him if he wants to go to the park, he immediately points to his head and announces “hat.” He knows he is supposed to wear his hat out to the park — supposed to being the key phrase.  He’ll tolerate us putting the hat on his head inside, but quickly pull it off within minutes of being outside.

3) Cars continue to dominate his thoughts, but an interloper on his love affair has arrived — the bus.  He thinks all trucks are buses and announces them as such. He’s even recently started saying “school bus” – although it sounds like “fool bus” or sometimes “foo ba.”

4) The Wiggles are still the bees’ knees to this kid.  He calls them the “gulls” (as in “wig – gulls”) and asks for them by grasping his hands together and moving them up and down – his version of their trademark hand gesture.

5) He’s developed his own sign for his monkey blanket. To ask for monkey, he takes both hands and puts them under his arm pits – the way one would try to imitate a monkey while saying “oo, oo, oo, ah, ah, ah.” He doesn’t make the sound – only the gesture.

    These are always my favorite posts! P.S. I predict busses will soon surpass cars on the excitement scale. We now squeal or scream at every bus!
