Disneyland - Days 3, 4, 5

Monday it was off to Disneyland!!

Mine, Mine, Mine. Waiting in line for the Nemo ride!
Nemo was pretty cool, if you're 5. You get in this little submarine and go through it. There were a few parts that were REALLY dark and loud that scared Levi but he was a trooper.
Waiting for the PARADE!!! Mom and Dad took Levi so Trent and I could go ride some "adult" rides. (i.e. Star Wars and Space Mountain) I threw a little hissy fit in line for Star Wars because I wasn't pumped about it in the first place, then our "Fast Pass" was taking FOREVER and I did NOT want to miss the parade! Of course we made it in time. Star Wars was a big let down too. But Space Mountain did not disappoint! It was even better than I remembered!
Meeska Mooska Mickey Mouse! As I've said a few times in the blog, I have been putting Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on for Levi to watch so he'd know who he was when we got here. Does he ever!?! He would get soooooo excited when he saw Mickey!! All I have to do is say "Meeska Mooska" or sing the Hot Dog song and he gets excited. It's soooo sweet.
Another example....we were waiting for the boys to ride Dumbo and there was a stroller next to us with a Mickey balloon on it. When I put it in front of his face he got this huge grin on his face and started laughing, when I took it away he tried to crawl out of that stroller! Thank goodness for the 5 point harness haha!
My bright idea was to go to Mickey's house and meet Mickey. Boy was that a dumb idea! We waited FOREVER and it was complete, unorganized chaos in there. It was cute though.
BUT....when we got there and Levi saw Mickey he went "ooooooooooohh" and held his arms out. When we got close to him he was looking at him like "whooooooa you're real!!" It made the wait worth while! Look how wet his diaper is, poor baby. We were all reallllly frustrated but I think all the little boys liked seeing Mickey.
Tuesday morning we all kind of did our own thing. Levi stayed at the house with Nana and Grandpa while Trent and I went to try and get a bunch of rides in. We got to ride a lot of stuff! Then we came back to the house to hang out for a little while before the baseball game.

This is Nana's idea of fun in the "sun" haha!
All decked out in our Rangers' gear! This was Levi's first baseball game!

This might be my favorite picture from the whole trip! Grandpa and Nathan. :)
Levi's first ballpark!
Sleepy baby!! All the screaming was a little much for him, he would cry when the crowd would all of a sudden start yelling. Poor thing. :(
Wednesday morning we had breakfast with Mickey and friends. Levi was crazy about the characters this time!
Levi, Stitch and Nathan. This little piggy ate so much at breakfast! Well breakfast was at 10:30 so he had already had his normal oatmeal/fruit plus 2 bottles. At the restaurant he ate, pancakes, bananas, and eggs!
Pluto playing with Nathan and Braeden, haha.
I swear he wanted Minnie to hold him!
Braeden hates anything that has to do with "girl stuff!" He doesn't want pink anything and really could care less about all the princesses at Disney. But he was loving on Minnie this morning!

Just a couple of other Levi notes....

He's still not crawling but he scoots backwards everywhere. He can get himself from his hands and knees back to sitting up now. While we were on vacation we put him down for a nap, went to check on him once he got quiet and he was sitting up playing in his crib! Ah!!! How did he get so big??

He's starting to eat a little more people food, but he still gags at every single new texture I put in his mouth.

He's outgrowing all of his 9 month clothes! I swear he's grown a TON in the last 2 weeks!

He's doing really good feeding himself finger foods. Well actually he's only really good with puffs or anything that's not remotely sticky. When something gets stuck in his hands he's not really sure how to get it off.
