Levi Turned 2!

This past week was a big one for us!  Friday, the 11th, was Levi's 2nd birthday.  The 12th was our 5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY :), and we had Levi's party on that day.  And then Sunday the 13th was Mother's Day!  WOW!  If that is not a lot of celebrating people then I don't know what is.  But this post is to give some cute pics and video of my cute two year-old.  :)  

Levi rocking in the AMAZING, antique rocking chair my parents brought from the family farm :)
Brandon and I were talking just the other day how amazed we are at who Levi has become.  He is such a social and lovable little boy.  He loves trucks, cars, planes, anything that resembles a vehicle of some kind.  He is VERY verbal and communicates pretty well in my opinion.  It does take him repeating himself a few times sometimes before I can tell what he is saying, but sometimes not.  The clearest phrase is probably "No. I don't want to." Not said in an annoying or complaining tone, just matter-of-factly. :)  He has finally learned to say "I love you" which just melts my heart.  He even says it sometimes without you saying it first.  Last night when Brandon was taking him to bed he even said "Lu you Connor" all on his own accord! :)  He does love dogs as well.  

"I'm TWO!!"
Levi's actual birthday started with a special Baked Pancake with strawberries, and eggs.  Then we had fun going to get party favors for his party and riding in the car/basket at the grocery store.  Not too exciting but it was still special.  We had his party on Saturday morning and we are thankful for all of the family and friends who came!  It was nothing super amazing, just playing and eating.  I made Curious George cupcakes because George is his absolute favorite!  Thanks again for your presence and gifts!  Levi was truly blessed on Saturday!  The video is some highlights of the party!  
Daddy is excited to get him some practice camping for when Mommy says he is old enough to actual go! :)


  1. Thanks Tally and Brandon for posting this! Almost seemed like being there! Wow...what a weekend you guys have of celebration! Maybe stretch those other ones out!! Levi's is the biggest "kick" RIGHT now! So fun to see him growing into a "little man"! Wish I'd had more time with you at Chris's wedding - you know how crazy those hosting time are! Was just great to see all your sweet faces and Tally's baby bump!! Can't wait for August!! Love you guys! BTW....we are all going to Redeemer now....Eric really wants to attend whether it's the same service as Chris and I'm up for that!! Not sure you'll be in Chicago this summer but sure hope to see you at one of the holidays next fall/winter! Miss you guys....wish we'd taken better advantage of being "neighbors" when we could have! Life just get's crazy/busy!!!! Give Levi a big BD kiss and hug from Auntie Bren!!
