Levi says, "I'm 2!"

My little guy Levi. How can he go from this sleepy little bundle to a running, talking, laughing, trying-to figure-out-how-to-use the screwdriver toddler in 2 short years? I can still remember standing in my bathroom looking at myself holding my tiny newborn and hardly believing he was ours (a gift from God...but truly belonging to God). May he always belong to God...when he is able to choose, may he desire to give his heart and life to Christ.
Daddy reads Levi one of his new books from Grandpa Stacy and Grandma Carol. It takes a whole family to supervise this production!

He was surprisingly careful!

Blowing out the candles was his favorite part, I think!

"Candles," "cake," and "yum" are all part of Levi's vocabulary. But he didn't quite get the whole idea of birthday. His usual wiggly, noisy self became rather calm and puzzled as we sang "Happy Birthday." I videoed it and it's pretty funny. He enjoyed removing all the carefully placed playmobile pieces (DJ's choice) and then attempting to remove the ponds (blue jello). What fun!

The cake looks cute. I think Birthdays are a little overwhelming at that age. At Megan's 2nd birthday she started sobbing when we sang to her. We did have a big crowd (The Edwards were here as well as the locals) and all the kids were gathered right around her and were singing very loudly so that may have contributed to it.
