The Big Talker Who Has an Appetite For Destruction

I know Tori will appreciate the GnR reference in the title.

Luke's really coming along with his emerging skills. He is starting to say all kinds of new words and even stringing together a few. I went into his room this morning and started tickling him as he was standing in his crib. As I picked him up, I said "I tickled you, you little cutie pie. Gotcha!" He giggled and said "Gah-uh." He said it again a few times after that.

He has also started to laugh differently. It really sounds like an old Woody Woodpecker cartoon. It's very stacatto and huhhuhhuh sounding. Its very hard not to laugh when he's doing it.

The appetite is also increasing. Today for lunch he had 1/2 a toasted cheese sandwich, a whole hot dog (I know, I know, hot dogs are bad for him AND they're a choking hazard for such a small kid but cut me some slack), some noodles, a whole container of yogurt, and some cheerios. Seriously, he eats more than I do. There must have been something in the air, though, because Ella was a Starvin Marvin, too. She had a hot dog, 1 1/2 yogurts, 2 bowls of cheerios and some noodles PLUS she had just eaten at story hour. I think I'm going to need a 2nd job so I can pay for their food.
