the kid is going to be nine months before i get to posting this! eeeek! this only dates through the third week of january and in the last two weeks so much has changed. anyways, here we go.
over the past two months (december/january), levi has changed SO much! i have been bad at updating on the kids lately and i really want to change that. i've been spending all my free time working on other projects, but i'm happy to say i've got a plan to clear my plate and get back to what is important. :)
anyways ... what's new with levi? oh man.
for 'baby book' purposes:
12/27 - cut his third tooth (upper front)
01/03 - cut his fourth tooth (upper front)
that whole week ... a teething hell.
i didn't even blog about our christmas, but levi enjoyed it. he was a big fan of trying to rip wrapping paper off and eat it. they should make edible baby wrapping paper. then you could just like, wrap an empty box. :) in my opinion, the best gift santa brought him, was a little sasquatch. i think i love it more than him.
during the month we took down the jumperoo and swing as he wasn't using them much anymore. he prefers his walker or to be on the floor navigating his way ... somewhere. he starting getting up in the crawling position and rocks back and forth until he does a 'super lunge' and repeats. we have wood floors so once he gets on those, he basically will pull himself across the floor.
the dude is STRONG. just last week something a bit crazy happened. matt picks up the boys about an hour and a half before i get off work. well, he had to uh, go to the bathroom so he blocked some of the 'usual' things off and told tucker to watch his brother (who was in his walker). it wasn't long before he heard tucker yelling 'dad! levi has the dvd player!'. matt was thinking he was just playing with the buttons like he's tried to before. well, he finishes his business only to run out and find levi HOLDING THE DVD PLAYER ABOVE HIS HEAD. yes. he had grabbed it out of the entertainment center and was holding it above his head. thank god the thing was still plugged in because i think that helped it from CRASHING TO THE FLOOR. but yeah, so the little dude can now be dubbed 'hurcules'. we are so screwed. he is going to be into EVERYTHING.
other little things:
he LOVES taking a bath. put fins on the kid and i wouldn't even have to take him out of the tub. LIKE EVER. he can be in the worst mood and if i bring him in by the tub ... instant HAPPY. it is crazy.
he makes the 'this food sucks face' before he even takes a bite. he does it to be funny because we get a good laugh out of it when he does it.
the one place he will go once he completely crawling on his own will be: TUCKER'S ROOM. i don't think tucker is going to like this AT ALL. tucker has already given levi the boot once while him and auntie natalie were playing in there. levi made it in there with his walker (heehee). it was the first time that tucker had asked to close his bedroom door! ha! i think it's the start of something REALLY MAGICAL.
here are a few pictures:
hope grandma doesn't care i'm posting this one. the boys + grandma on new years day - in style. is this a freaking classic shot or what? kills me every time i look at it.
