The Shortest Catch-up Post Ever!

I recently took a much needed.... LONG break from blogging. I needed to focus just on my family; my men. And I did, it was lovely.

I wasn't sure I was going to come back. It was beautiful to just live life, instead of constantly chronicling it all. But my baby, my youngest, is turning one in a few short days, and my momma heart is a bit sore from that realization. Time goes by too quickly, and I want to remember the sweet little moments.

So to come back from a long blogging break, I've decided to not catch y'all up on everything little detail that happened in our lives... just the boys, and a few major events. And to begin journaling the new sweet moments that are sure to come.

Levi

  • Crawling like he was born doing it.
  • Trying to stand on his own without support from anything...
  • Has two sweet little teeth on the bottom.
  • Is in size 3 diaper, adn 12 month clothing.
  • 25% for height and weight, he's my little guy in more than one way.
  • Will eat everything and anything. Including the bean burrito bite Jonah took out of his own mouth and put in Levi's... Oye.
  • Can imitate any noise PERFECTLY, including the sound a rubber duck makes when you squeeze the water out.
  • Is a mama's boy.

Jonah

  • Loves to dance, sing, and lip-sync (which is hilarious by the way)
  • Is in a size 6 diaper, and 3T/4T clothing.
  • 95% for height and weight, he's my big tall boy.
  • Has turned into a picky eater, the booger.
  • Is a daddy's boy.

Life

  • Went to Michigan for Christmas, had a blast with family.
  • Bought a new mini-van (Yes, I'm that mom now... and kinda enjoying it.).
  • I got to meet the Duggar family.
  • We are planning another Disney trip!

Pumpkins & "Fall Fest" Costumes

Carving Pumpkins
Helping Daddy gut the pumpkin... "Ucka..."

Clearly this is very serious work.

The finished project.


The Dragon and the Duck

(A big thank you to Nana Wendy who got these cute costumes.)
Jonah just keeps saying "roar" and "duck, duck, duck..."

Levi is 7 months



Levi weighs 18 lbs the last I checked (it's been a bit since I checked....). My sweet little chubby cheeked boy.

Still going strong in cloth diapers. If we travel he's in size 3 disposables. Levi is eating 6 ounces of formula every 5 hours during the day. And solid food with every meal. We recently introduced strawberries, brussel sprouts, and squash.  He has slept though the night occasionally, so the 3 am feeding is just occasionally now. He has a dream feed around 10 at night. He is doing so well with waking during the night, and putting himself back to sleep. Occasionally I wake up with him and just listen to him talk to himself until he falls back asleep.


If I put him in the sitting position, he does really well at sitting up by himself. He's also getting soooo close to crawling! Little man says "Mama, Daddy, Dad, and None." Two days ago he also said "Hi Babe!" It was super cute.  His favorite toy is still his big brother, and he gets super cranky went Jonah is not around to entertain him. He rolls everywhere, and even scoots forward a couple inches if a toy is just out of his reach. Tonight he had his first bath without his bathtub... which meant he could play with toys! He loved it.

Walt Disney World 2013

Yes, I'm spoiled. My hubby has taken me (again) to Walt Disney World. It was so much fun to introduce Levi to all things Disney, and to see Jonah meet Mickey Mouse again, and meet his first princesses (I think he has a crush on Rapunzel.).

It was a pretty simple trip. One day in the parks, one day just around the resort, and one more day at the parks. It was really nice to have that day in between to relax. We will definitely be doing it that way again.

The first day we went to Magic Kingdom in the morning, and Epcot for dinner/after nap-time. However, it was the Food and Wine Festival, and it was crowded! Now y'all know that I have been to Disney during the Food and Wine festival many times, but this time the drunk people seemed to come out of the wood-work. So we left Epcot relatively early to go back to Magic Kingdom until bedtime. We ended up staying until the fireworks started, which was not the plan, but Jonah loved seeing the "Ma-MOOM" (a.k.a. the fireworks). They were the first he's seen.

Levi meeting Mickey for the first time.

Jonah ran up to Mickey and gave him a big hug and kiss as soon as we put him down on the floor. So sweet.

Jonah and his new crush... Rapunzel.

Wish I knew what they talked about... ;)

Had this silhouette done of both boys our first day there. 

Day two we went to the Caribbean Beach Resorts splash pad. Jonah had a ball! Levi and Justin stayed on the sidelines taking pictures. Then we went to Downtown Disney, came back for naps, and went to Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge for dinner.
Jonah and the pirate ship slash pad.

The last day we started out at Animal Kingdom, but quickly left (not much friendly stuff for a 1.5 year old and 6 month old to do...) and made it over to Magic Kingdom. Travel from one park directly to another park was horrible... it took almost two hours! That afternoon (after naps) we went back to Magic Kingdom and had a wonderful time. It was a great ending to our trip.
Levi tuckered out...

First Mickey Ears ice cream... that he stole from Daddy.

We can't wait to go back!

Levi is 6 Months



Levi weighs 18 lbs. Which is heavy enough that we don't carry him around in the car seat anymore...

Still going strong in cloth diapers. If we travel he's in size 3 disposables. Levi is eating 6 ounces of formula every 5 hours during the day. And solid food with every meal. He likes apples, green beans, oatmeal, rice cereal, and sweet potatoes, but he prefers bananas. He has slept though the night occasionally, so the 3 am feeding is just occasionally now. He has a dream feed around 10 at night. Unfortunately he is waking up a lot during the night to have his paci put back in, and it is quickly becoming an issue. 

Levi still refuses to sit in the bumbo, bouncy-seat, or anything else. He's getting really really close to sitting up by himself. Little man says "Mama, Daddy, Dad, and None." His favorite toy is still his big brother, and he gets super cranky went Jonah is not around to entertain him. He rolls everywhere, and even scoots forward a couple inches if a toy is just out of his reach. 


It's crazy how quickly he is growing up.
It's crazy how quicly BOTH my boys are growing up.
