over my past blog entries and MISSED to my core my tiny babies. Cody glanced over top his iPad a little scared, and asked what was wrong. As soon as he saw a picture of baby Levi he needn't say more! He knows I've been struggling with them growing up and no new babe on the horizon. I loved having babies and the unlikeliness of anymore is hard sometimes, and sometimes it's bittersweet to be out of the baby phase and watching our boys grow.

Levi is technically 2 years and 3 months old. He is nuts. He lives out his days as a little stand up comedian and loves to make us laugh. Pretty much everything he says and does is funny and shocking at the same time. So much personality trapped inside that tiny body. We are constantly in awe of what he knows and remembers. He is very verbal and has a sharp little mind. He and Max now have little conversations and play together/brutally attack each other all day. Sometimes Levi gets the upper hand in the fights, but Max LOVES that Levi still takes a nap and in a crib. He's always quick to remind him that he's a baby and be better behave. It's pretty funny to see into their little minds.

He is SO opinionated and LOUD. He's been introducing us to public embarrassment lately which has been a treat! He will not sit still at restaurants unless I give him snacks or let him shreds those little tubs of sweeteners. Neither of which I want to do. While I LOVE how verbal he is, it is so embarrassing to have him yell, "I will NOT eat dinner unless I get ice cream first"! Heavens where have a gone wrong! We have officially started a discipline regimen with him and it's helping a lot.
(before he knew how to throw a fit)
He's not even very strong willed across the board, and anyone who keeps him says he's perfect for them. He just picks a few battles to fight tooth and nail, and seems to save all the drama for us. He's very loving too and told me today "I have a precious family" and has been calling me "darling mommy" which is probably because Max calls me his "precious sweetheart". I think I might be baby talking to them a taaaad too much! Ha!
