Happy half birthday Levi!!!!

Our LIFE....

How did we get so lucky to be blessed with this amazing boy?


I absolutely cannot believe Levi is 6 months old already!!!! We had a wonderful weekend and I'm enjoying some unexpected days off with our handsome fella. Uncle Brent came down this weekend and got some good Levi lovin'. We didn't do a whole lot, just hung out but we had a good time! I got a little picture happy this afternoon. I though to myself..."I have to do a little 6 month photo shoot." I'm home by myself for a couple of nights, Trent had to leave for business today so when we got home from church we played paparazzi in the back yard!

Levi is sitting up really good now! We still surround him with pillows or make sure we're sitting behind him because he does dump over every now and then. He has really started to use his hands. He reaches for just about everything and loves to flail his right arm around! (see above picture) He's also getting to be quite the little splasher in the bath tub. He kicks his legs and slaps the water with his hands through the whole bath! It's pretty hilarious...but whoever gets the lucky job of bath time gets soaked! Tonight literally my whole left leg was wet. I swear he's getting a couple of teeth. He hasn't been abnormally cranky, but he has all the other symptoms. Of course I really don't know what I'm looking for since this is my first go round with teeth...but someone told me they start out as little white bumps. I'm pretty sure he's got 2 white bumps right now. I guess we'll see!

This picture is my fave!!

And look at those dimples!!!!

Levi started eating some other solids this past week too! I'm usually pretty crazy about not doing anything until the doctor gives us the ok, but Levi's 6 mo. checkup isn't scheduled until the 16th. We were having sweet potatoes ourselves on Thursday so I decided to whip him up some of his own! He wasn't too sure about them and gagged quite a bit that first night, but he gobbles them up now! We are on day 4 of sweet potatoes and no reactions yet. I think we'll do peas next!

Yummy sweet potatoes! I spent a little while this afternoon making quite a bit of food so I can just pop it out of the freezer and serve on the weeknights.

Mr. "I don't wanna take a nap" didn't much care for the kitchen ninja. (I really should have closed the pantry door!)

And on a waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse note....every working parents nightmare came true for us on Friday. I know that everything happens for a reason and that our Mighty God sent me over to the babysitters house unannounced because it was time for Levi to no longer be there. Words cannot describe the way we have felt for the last couple of days. Anyway...I'm taking tomorrow off until Nana can get here. She's going to stay for a week so we can get ourselves together and find someone else. I have faith the right place will come along, and I pray it will be somewhere that he is LOVED AND SAFE.
