Playing around

I knew there was a use for those ugly utility boxes in the front yard!

We went to the zoo with Carmen and Vivienne, but I didn't take any great pictures.

Eighteen months

Levi turned eighteen months old today.  He had his check-up yesterday, and he is a big boy!  At 35 inches tall, he is off the charts for height.  (The 95th percentile, the highest indicated on the chart, is 34.25 inches.)  He weighs 28 pounds 7 ounces, so that is the 82nd percentile.  His head circumference of 48.5 centimeters is the 75th percentile.

Lately Levi has begun to be more physical: running a lot and trying to climb more things.  He can say dada, mama, bubble, ball, nana (banana), tickle, and a wide array of animal sounds.  He is increasingly interested in new things, and I always love to see what captures his attention.  I'm looking forward to seeing what the next few months will bring!

Random Photos

Yep.  That's Levi wearing his swim trunks and his favorite doggie towel,
even though he didn't want to go in the pool, and he's "helping" me water the plants.

More family time

Today was photo day for the kids.  As usual, it was awfully interesting getting everyone to look towards the camera, so we were lucky to get some smiles.

Grannie and Grandpa with Levi, Paige, and Claire

Maddie wanted to share in the limelight, but Amy wasn't so sure.

The cousins are getting so big!

Paige started crawling just yesterday, and here she crawled into the tent to join Claire.

Giddyup, Grandpa!
 On Monday morning we all went to Amy and John's house to play with Maddie's toys.

On Tuesday, Grannie met Levi and me at the park for lunch and a public concert.
