Happy Easter!

Today is Levi's 2nd Easter!
We went to the same place we went last year. This was the first shot they snapped. After that he was kinda like what the heck am I sitting on and didn't want to do it anymore! 
Crazy how fast they grow!

Last night we had Easter dinner and an egg hunt for the kids at my dads.

He did good! He would get one and shake it to see if there was anything in it. If it didn't make a noise he put it down and went on to the next one! lol

Levi's Easter basket from us. He LOVES Reese cups! And I got him his sand castle stuff for vacation!

This afternoon we are having Easter here and then going to Blake's moms so I will have to post more pictures later!

Spring Time

The weather so far hasn't been to bad in Tennessee. Until tonight that is when we may get a dusting of snow.

Last week we got to go outside and enjoy the sun. This was technically Levi's first time touching the grass and he wasn't a fan!
He loves his car. And of course he has to have a balloon. He is obsessed with balloons lately. Anytime we go into the grocery store he knows they have them all over the place. And I always end up buying him one.

Lately Levi has been super chatty! He says random words all the time but says them clear as day. Earlier today he said 'somebody'. Daddy has been teaching him eyes, ears, mouth and nose. My mom said nose earlier and he grabbed his nose. This was before I knew daddy was teaching him. I thought it was hilarious. 

Last night I had him laying on the bed and he was playing with the tv remote and knew exactly which button to push to turn it off and on. He's a pro at his stacking cups and blocks. And he is such a pig! He's picky at what he eats but he can eat anything. No baby food here! He isn't walking yet but he's so close! We've caught him a few times standing alone by himself.

He is the happiest little boy ever! Always smiling and laughing. Bath time is his favorite. The only time he fusses is if mommy leaves the room or if he's tired.

In 27 days little mister will be here...
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
Freeport, Bahamas
Nassau, Bahamas

I am sooo excited. Most people have said they would never take a baby on a cruise but I don't see why at all. Disneyland to me sounds so boring. There's nothing a 15 month old can do there. He's such a water baby and loves being outside that I think he will love this! Maybe even more than me! This is my 6th cruise but Levi and daddy's 1st!

Next update is Easter!

Adventures of Levi

Next month Levi gets to go on a new adventure! His first cruise!
Carnival Ecstasy

We head to Orlando (Port Canaveral) April 21st. We leave the next morning heading to the Bahamas for 5 days! We're going to Nassau, Freeport and Half Moon Cay. I've been to 2 of the places already but Blake and Levi have never been at all. I can't wait!

Half Moon Cay

Levi is ready!

We have 1 formal night and in the past 5 cruises I've been on I've only gone once. And since we never go out anywhere fancy I wanted to actually go this time and dress up. So Levi and I headed to the mall to find a dress.

I got tired of looking so I settled on this one from Macy's. It was originally $69 and the tag said $24.99 but when I went to pay it rang up $14.99! Not bad for something I will only wear once.

On the way out of the mall someone stopped me to tell me Levi was missing a sock. Story of my life! This kid never keeps his socks on. There was no hope in finding the sock. It's long gone!
 Then we headed to DSW to find shoes to match my dress.

I found these on clearance and then I had a $10 off coupon for being a rewards member so I got these for $2.16! Score!

That's pretty much all the excitement around here.

Levi is so close to walking. He stands like a champ and if he's holding onto something he can walk but he's not quite there. He has 6 teeth in the front and 2 molars came in. We thought he was cranky a few weeks ago from teething but he ended up having an ear infection. Worst thing ever! So cranky. He eats like a pig. No more baby food! Except for his gerber snacks. His favorite thing to eat is rice, beans, mashed potatoes and mac n cheese. And he use to hate bananas but now he loves them. He likes biting a chunk off. He's still in size 4 diapers. He can still fit in most of his 12 month clothes but they are getting tight! I wish warm weather would hurry up because all of his 18 month stuff is t-shirts, tanks and shorts. He loves the water! He splashes like crazy and soaks the floor. He loves to lick the water. I can't wait for vacation. He is going to love it! He talks a lot and yells. He says more words but it's mostly baby talk. If he wants something he grunts and looks at it or points.  He's always happy and smiling unless he is in desperate need of a nap. He loves cartoons! In the morning he sits in his high chair and eats his cereal bar and watches them.

Love him and his millions of toys

Eating his cereal bar standing at the couch

Smart boy lol The only time he gets a bottle is if he has milk. It's just easier to put it in that to heat it up a little. Some days he doesn't even use it but if he does need it it's to get him to sleep.

That's all for now! Next post will be Easter I'm sure!
