I love this kid.
This morning we came downstairs for breakfast and Lucas's alphabet magnets were on the table. He picked up the H and said, "H." I was very impressed... and a little doubtful, so I asked him again which one was the H and he pointed it out. I asked Ben if they worked on that last night while I was out and they didn't, so I guess he learned it from the singing magnet toy.
Another funny Lucasism: at night when he's all ready for bed we say prayers (quickly) and Lucas always listens for the "amen" and says it right along with us. Recently he will listen for a second, but run away really quickly to his room in the middle of the prayer. We find him in there waiting for us to put him in his crib. I guess he must be really tired!
Lucas has become very helpful at times. He loves to put things in the trash can. At the pool he spends a lot of time cleaning up the litter... I've only had to go fish someone's goggles out of the trash once. Here's a little video of Lucas helping me with the trash at home.
