Levi's 1st of many cruises!

We finally went on vacation! 

We got back Saturday night after a long 10 hour drive home. We left early Sunday the 21st and drove down to Jacksonville where we stayed for the night. It was raining when we got there. Monday morning when we got up it was pouring! So glad we didn't end up sailing out of Jaxport. We drove 2 1/2 hours down to Port Canaveral Monday morning. After stopping at Target we got to the port around 1:30. It didn't take long and we were on board or home for the week!

 Levi looking around
The staff loved him. This is his rabbit ears! lol And they also made him a rabbit out of a napkin that I still have.

We had lunch once we got on the ship and just enjoyed the night.

The next day we were in Freeport, Bahamas! 

 @ Senor Frogs
 He was wore out already!
We walked around and looked at the shops.

We tried Conch for the first time. It wasn't awful but it was def different!

We got back on the ship and headed to the water area. They had slides and an area with a ledge around it to keep the water in. Levi had a blast here! We went pretty much every day.

  The next day we went to Nassau, Bahamas. We got off the ship early and walked around the shops. We stopped in a little restaurant and tried conch fritters and used their wifi. Then we headed to a beach that I had never been to. 

 This was Junkanoo Beach.

At the pool area again in this picture!

The next day was my favorite day. We went to Half Moon Cay, Bahamas which I had never been too. I'd been to a private island before but this one was even better! Prettiest place I have ever been!

The last day was a sea day. We just relaxed all day. Played in the casino. And of course spent a while at the water park again.

Random pictures:
 The black button turns the lights on. He played with this every single day!
 Climbing the stairs. Another thing he did every day

 Pretty sure he relaxed more than we did!
 This was a lounge by the casino and sushi bar. They were playing music and he was standing there dancing.
 This was his bed for the week. It looks like a cage.
Eating dinner
 Yummy desserts!
 Climbing the stairs to the slide
This was funny. He noticed the water and thought it felt good so he kept paying his head down in it lol

There were a lot of kids and babies on the ship. It really wasn't any different than any other land vacation I've been on. I would do it again in a heartbeat but I think next time I would take up the offer on the baby sitting services. It would have been nice to just have a day to relax baby free!

Since I cut hair for a living and I know how much kids hate clipper cuts, I was dreading giving Levi a 'big boy' haircut so I kept putting it off. Hence the reason his hair looked like this...
It was worse in the mornings!

And I wanted to wait until right before vacation so I didn't have to touch it up for a while.

He's never fussed during a haircut until today! He was not a fan at all. Glad my mom was there to help me!
He looks soooo much better!

Levi had his 15 month check up last week. 

He weights 23 pounds 5 ounces. And he is 29 1/2 inches long. He is only in the 10th percentile for height. Which is a given since me and his dad are short. He's still not walking but getting so close! He talks like crazy! The doctor asked if he was saying atleast 10 words and he is way past 10 words. He says sentences. He still does the baby jabber but for the most part you can usually understand him. He says 'uh oh' all the time but it is soooo stinkin cute how he says it. He says it more drawn out like utt eww. Can't help but smile at him.

Today we made our first blanket fort since it was raining today!

He thought it was fun. This coming week it is suppose to be 70-80 degrees! I can't wait! Levi is def an outside baby. He discovered birds and planes in the air awhile ago and loves it. He has always loved looking at trees while they move in the wind.

April is a busy month for us! Busy at work and then we are moving and then vacation!

2 1/2 weeks until our cruise! So excited!
