You, my boy, are a brand new baby these days! This month you started rolling over every chance you got. You're sitting up on your own for a while at a time, too, which has made play time so much fun!! Beginning to fill out your 12 month clothes, you're growing into a charming little boy! You've started babbling, "Memememe," which is adorable, but I always respond back, "Mamamama." Hey, a girl can dream! We still haven't tried any solid foods yet, mainly because I think you'll look far too grown up with a sippy cup and I want you to stay little! Speaking of eating, you've turned nursing into quite the game, full of giggles and then smacking my face repeatedly. Your favorite things to do these days are to play peekaboo, have us blow raspberries on your belly, gurgle your spit, "sing" yourself to sleep, and hang upside down. And lo and behold, still no teeth, yet you're teething like a mad man! Levi, we're continually reminded how blessed we are. The best and scariest prayer we pray is a prayer of surrender. We're trusting God to soften your heart and speak to you so that you may know Him and experience His love for you. Whew, it's not easy being a parent (already!) but we love you like crazy and are hopeful and excited to see what God will do in your life!

Every day with you is more and more fun! We love watching you discover new things! You chew on your hands all day long and have continued to learn how to roll over. You have a new found love for Peek-a-boo and you smile from ear to ear at Sophie! We're amazed at your ability to sit up straight (with support) and hold your own bottle and put your paci in and out of your mouth! So many milestones were reached this month and we're SO proud of you! You're still an ornery little napper, but I think that's partly because you're teething these days. NOT fun! But even in the midst of the drool and fussiness, you flash us smile after smile and yes, even a few laughs! It's music to our ears, sweet boy. Every morning we spend some time reading from your special Bible! It excites me to know you're hearing truth at such a young age. It's our prayer that Jesus would stir in your heart and that you would come to know Him and love Him. He loves you even more than we do, so you have every reason to trust Him! To the moon and back, kid!
