PALS Profile - Luke

Favorite Color: It's always been red, but lately you've been saying orange. I think this is largely due to most construction equipment being this color!

Favorite Food: Food. Seriously, you love to eat. You have gotten slightly pickier with some things as you have gotten older, but you're not a picky eater. You love any kind of pasta and pizza like everyone else, but your favorite food is probably any kind of fruit. You LOVE fruit, especially grapes.

Favorite Book: Definitely Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Tom Lichtenheld. It combines all of your loves in one place: Excavators, backhoes, dump trucks, dirt, and rhyming.

Favorite Song: Anything by Fresh Beat Band but you also love "C is for Cookie" (by you favorite blue monster) and "Shine Your Light" by David Crowder.

Likes to: Do anything involving construction equipment. Playing with it, pretending to work on the machines, driving to the construction site to watch the excavators ... if it's related to construction, you love it. You started pretend playing really early because you had three older influences to draw you in. You love to play with them and pretend. You also love your mommy. My quest to make you a momma's boy is complete!

Does not like: Being told "no." You are just entering the whiny stage where you whine about everything you want. While I'm glad that you seem to be exiting the "I do it myself" phase, this new phase really hurts my ears. You also still struggle a bit with being left somewhere. You don't cry, but you're always slightly reluctant to go to school, the Y, Sunday school, etc. You are fine once you're inside, you just have to be prodded to enter. I'll have to chalk this one up to me and my momma's boy quest.

Things you can do: Ride your bike with training wheels (you taught yourself to pedal that bike really early), recognize all of the letters, buckle yourself into your car seat, working on writing letters but you are still a little ways from that.

Things you can't live without: Your excavator, food and snacks, your momma
