My last post was a gush about the baby… so I thought it might be time for a little gush about this kid too – my darling 22-month-old, Levi.
Why hello, heart-breaker.
The other day I was watching him play and listening to him talking to himself and the words flashed into my mind: “My heart can’t contain you. You make it burst.”
I’m so in love with this kid that some days I feel like my heart aches a little… you know – aches with love.
He is so hilarious right now. Mr. Personality in full effect.
Nearly everything he does makes us giggle.
Yes, he’ll be two soon…. and he’s a normal toddler, complete with moments of tenderness and moments of defiance.
But he’s an incredible individual. I couldn’t be more proud of him.
Just the other day I was saying to Ryan, that “seeing Levi at nearly two years old gives me such confidence in our ability as parents.” Because really, he’s just turning out to be such a lovely little person.
I know that we can’t take all the credit for that – it’s a combination of him and us and all the other special people in his life. (Mostly just him.)
But really, I couldn’t be more proud.
Oh wait, I said that already.
He’s so good with Judah.
And he’s also very good at stealing the show.

He never ceases to amaze us.
Have you ever seen a toddler of his age instruct an entire house full of adults to get their groove on? Since Levi entered our world our friends cannot visit without ending the night with a dance party directed by the shortest guy in the room. Even the non-dancers dance. And laugh. And love it. And talk about it again later.
This child breathes music.
And he is music for our soul.
Love this little dude.
Dear friends, it can be easy to focus on the challenges of raising toddlers… but what do you love most about your toddler right now?
