Did I never post Levi's 2nd birthday?

Levi Nicholas, Wise, Wisey Wise, Him, Himmy, little man, Leviticus...

You have lots of names :) you are 2 years old and as busy as can be! You call yourself "Him" and you adore Adalyn who you call "Ina". The two of you are the dynamic duo. Y'all can get into mischief in a heartbeat, and what was once a clean house, or freshly painted wall, or nicely ironed outfit will be a disaster in 0.2 seconds.

You are ALL boy! You love any type of ball but baseballs and bats are your favorite. You are CRAZY about bugs. CRAZY about them! Roaches, beetles, cicadas, worms... All of the nasty ones. If daddy gets to it before you, you bust out into the flash dance running in place and crying. You sleep with a june bug in a jar.

You love to wear your crocs, you love opening and shutting doors, you love matchbox cars, and you still love having your hand in your pants😁. You and josiah are forming a sweet bond that I love. The two of you share a room and he is a great big brother to you. You love daddy. In fact, the other day after you woke up, I was kissing you and scratching your back. I whispered in your ear, "I love you.." You smiled at me and whispered back, "I love daddy!" Stinker.

Wheels on the bus is your favorite thing to watch on Netflix, you get excited whenever you see a dog and especially when you see the donkeys on the way to church. Speaking of church, you love getting candy from mrs. Lisa's office. We love you to the moon, buddy! God is so good to have blessed us with your sweet life! Happy birthday!

Ella kate is 8

I promise you that I am implementing a new Pinterest phrase into my house on some wall, some day..."little ones should never be sent to bed, because they always wake up a day older" - Peter Pan

I can't believe that our firstborn is 8! I still look at her with her giant smile, small soft eyes, brown bouncy girls and infectious laugh... She seems to be frozen at the sweet age of 4-5 in my brain.

However, she is growing and I am doing my best to enjoy each new stage. She is an incredible helper! Breakfast maker, sandwich assembler, juice cup pourer, vacuumer, baby bather, baby singer:) she wears many hats in this family and we are thankful that God blessed us with some amazingly perfect sweet helpers, first.

Having six small kids is totally more do-able with her! She is sweet, caring, wants to please you, friendly, talkative, thoughtful. She wants to be a vet when she grows up. Her new favorite color is purple, she loves eating several things.. My fruit bug, Italian and Mexican buddy, loves sprite. Still spends hours playing with barbies. Loves sending people handwritten notes or texts, can make loom bracelets in no time, has the ability to turn a messy room into sparkly clean and a white piece of paper will be a masterpiece in minutes. She loves her jeans and loves ponytails without a hairbow.

We love our sweet EK! You are more important that you can imagine!
