Yep. I have a son in the double digits. That’s just wrong. Of course, I’m used to a son who either acts 2 or 22 with no in between. When I began this blog, he had just turned five. That blows my mind.


Levi is my New Year’s boy. 12:06 am, to be exact. We start off every year with a bang. (And, yes, I’m slightly belated in my posts, but that is nothing new.)

I don’t know what to say about him that hasn’t already been said. He’s vivacious, funny, sentimental, talkative, smart, affectionate, imaginative, chaotic, argumentative, and emotional. He loves words. He loves to read. He has an astounding vocabulary. Everyday I hear words such as scrutinize, apparel, vicinity, jurisdiction, and hundreds of others in casual conversation. He keeps us highly entertained.

He is an awesome ring-leader when it comes to imaginative play with his brothers. I am so thankful for his willingness and interest in involving them in everything. Sometimes that backfires, but in general it is one of my most favorite things about him.

He loves swimming. He loves to draw. He loves fantasy. His favorite books are the Percy Jackson series and the Peter and the Starcatchers series, and usually he’ll also add the last couple books he has read to his list because he just loves books in general. His favorite movie is How to Train Your Dragon.



Another one of my favorite things about Levi is that he could play with his little sister all day long. They are the best of pals. Here is one more moment in a morning with Lola:


Were you surprised to find out that I have children other than Lola? I know, I’ve been posting pictures of her a lot lately. I really do have some other things to say and quite a few posts half-finished. As always, I’m just trying to find enough hours in the day…

(I have NO pictures of his birthday party. How sad is that? I really can only do one thing at a time. Hosting/entertaining and taking pictures is really difficult for me, especially if I want to enjoy the moment. Which reminds me—I never even posted pictures of Lola’s 1st birthday party! I’m really slipping…)
