Levi's Second Year Begins

Yesterday was the first day of Levi's second year.  We're very proud of our little guy and what he's accomplished so far :)

Holly thinks he's starting to look more like a little boy and less like a baby.  I sort of agree... except I think he's beginning to look more like an old man with his pot-belly, skinny legs, and no butt whatsoever.  If we gave him a Hawaiian shirt and some Isotoners, people would think he was just an old midget.  At a retirement party, perhaps.*  His elderly physique is never more on display than when he's standing, which he does very often these days, we're happy to report.  Most of this standing is demonstrated at the new activity table that Grandma, Grumpy, and Auntie Sam got him for his birthday.

As you can tell from our gape-mouthed expressions, this is a VERY exciting table

Though Levi's party got rained out and postponed until this weekend, he still had a blast (as usual) with Holly's parents and sister in town.  We opened presents, went to market, went out to lunch, Levi flirted with the waitresses.  Pretty standard fare.  Levi has still not yet officially said any words, but I think if he could talk he would tell us he had a great birthday and a great first year.  Here are his memoirs, in caption-form:

Hey, everybody!  Thanks for readin' my birthday blog!

What's this in my hand, you ask?  Oh, just some developmental flash cards I got from daycare.  I'm right on track!
At least I think I am... I wish I could figure out how to eat these tasty-looking cards.

Speaking of eating... I could go for a snack right now....  Wait, what were we talking about again?

Ah, yes.  Reflecting on my lifetime achievements and gazing off in wonderment at what is yet to come.

Great things, I'm sure!  I love life!  Carpe Diem!

Mmmm... carpe.  My favorite.
