We are proud parents. So there are numerous ways we could boastfully describe Luke in honor of his 18 month birthday: smart, sensitive, adventurous, sweet, and yes, even willful. But the one trait that seems to be most evident in Luke's personality is his wonderful sense of humor! Here's a glimpse of what I mean:
But among all of Luke's silly expressions, nothing compares to "the face." Perhaps we are uncreative, but that's what we call it. Luke came up with this on his own, and he does it on command. At this point, anyone could ask him to make this face, and he'd do it. It never ceases to bring Paul and me to loud laughs, which I'm confident is his reason for continuing this entertainment. So there's no more accurate way to describe Luke's life these days than to share these pictures of "the face." Enjoy!

|Notice the baggy eyes. "The face" is appropriate even after having only been awake for 15 minutes!|
|"Anything to make you laugh!"|
And here he is in action:
Happy 18 month birthday, little Luke! You are a delight to this family, and your cheerful heart is good medicine (Proverbs 17:22)! We love you, and we pray that you will choose to live your life for God's glory which brings the greatest joy!
