Levi Turns 2!

I've been looking forward to Levi's birthday for months.  Last year, when he turned one, we were all sick.  For several weeks after his birthday people were sick.  So we actually never got around to celebrating his birthday! I've felt guilty for an entire year! : )  So I wanted to do it up right this year.

We got up this morning and I quickly got cupcakes in the oven before we loose power at 9.  Then we made pancakes for breakfast.

While the power was out, we opened Levi's presents and played!

We thankfully got power back early at 10:30 this morning, so I was able to make the frosting and get the cupcakes put together in these cute Mater cup cakes before lunch.

Then we had tomato soup and grilled cheese for lunch, followed by CAKE!

The afternoon was spent watching a movie and playing outside, and a little bit of Wii mixed in there too.  Tacos for dinner, and more cake.  He's one happy two year old today. : )

Can't believe my bubby is two years old.  He is in such a fun fun phase.  Here are some things I love about two-year-old Levi:

-He brings his me a stack of books, the same books everyday, and says, "Rez! MOM! Rez!!"

-I love the way he says "zeba" and "umlelalalala".  (zebra and umbrella)

-He loves to cuddle and snuggle with me

-I love it when I'm holding him, how he wraps his whole arm all the way around my neck

-I love the way he pops his lips when he kisses me

-I love the way he smiles when he's trying not to be in trouble, it's this totally cheesy put-on smile, complete with raised eyebrows

-I love how he loves to help and pick up: his favorite things are putting all his cars back in the box, and throwing his diapers away, and putting his empty bottles and snack dishes into the sink.

-It is so cute in the mornings when he's hungry and he goes in the kitchen to get a bowl and spoon and shows it to me saying, 'Bowl!"  It's his way of saying, "Breakfast, please!"

-As annoying as it can be, I love that he just wants to sleep in our bed, and can't seem to fall asleep by himself.  I can't say I blame him. I don't like sleeping by myself either...

-It is adorable how he mimmicks everything his brother and sister do... especially when it's something he shouldn't be doing.  : ) He thinks he's so much bigger than he is.

-I absolutely love to listen to him say all his letter sounds. My favorite is the x, he doesn't even open his mouth, it's just like a crash in his mouth with closed lips.  So awesome.

Oh, I could go on and on.  These are just things I don't want to forget. : ) I'm so in love with this little man!
