Baby Luke

We have this little boy named, Luke. Perhaps, you've met him. He's the one who is always telling his mom to "Go away," when he's in the midst of having dinosaurs stomp through the house plants or engineering a train over a particularly difficult set of track that his brother built.

But, then, we have this baby named Luke, who loves to be snuggled and still wants to be cradled and rocked to sleep in one of his parents' arms. I kept thinking it was amazing that a 6 month old, 1 year old, 18 month old, 2 year old! would want to be rocked to sleep. Now, he's almost 2 1/2, he's way too big to be rocked to sleep, but he still loves that cuddling as one of us awkwardly dangles his legs over our arms and tries to cradle this big boy.


I'm not sure what we'll do when he turns twelve and insists on this...

Very cute. George is the very same way with cuddling, though Sylvie usually gets the rocking before bed. He has been very good about sharing his mom with his "sissy."

Oh, enjoy every minute! The time is just flying way too fast for me! I watch old videos of Thomas and can't believe that I thought he was big/old back then! :)

So jealous. Kyle never cuddled and I felt gipped.
