Verve. This Kid Has Got It

Levi has star power. He knew exactly when to show up. Six minutes past midnight on New Year's Day. In the first year of his life, his picture was in a newspaper twice and then a magazine. I was afraid that he would use up his 15 minutes of fame in, well, his first 15 minutes, but I shouldn't have worried. This kid has verve. And you haven't seen anything yet. Levi, thank you for making me a mother.


I wish I could share all of my favorite photos of this guy. There are so very many. I'm sure some of you will think 'enough already' but if you knew how many pictures I had to set aside...


















Verve (vûrv) n.

1. Energy and enthusiasm in the expression of ideas, especially in artistic performance or composition.
2. Vitality; liveliness.


Levi is enthusiastic, vivacious, effusive, dramatic, intelligent, vibrant, imaginative, extroverted, curious, affectionate, chaotic, exhausting, thoughtful, verbose, intense, and entertaining~at the no-longer-my-baby age of six (going on twenty-six). (Just check out the funny things he has to say!)


Happy Birthday, Levi!

Heidi - now is my face red!! Because I had Levi's card bought and labeled as his, it seemed I had sent it. I WILL get it on its way tomorrow. SORRY. Loved the pictures of his development through the years - I do remember all the stages. It amazes me you had time to even blog on New Years Day! Love, Grandma

hey girl...how do you get the thicker white border around your pics on your blog posts?

Heidi said...

Um... I have no idea. Isn't that helpful? And it doesn't look very thick to me. Hm. I just picked stuff from the template choices when I first set up my blog. Maybe I'll have to go back and look...

i figured it out. under fonts and colors you have to choose border. so now you know if you ever want to change. thanks!
