A Birthday Post, (Almost) One Month Later

Well you already saw Levi's party, but I still haven't posted his (last) monthly photo and book post.
12 Months
Wow...we made it to a year.  I cannot believe you have been here that long...what a big boy.  We had an awesome "Little Man" birthday party for you.  I was not sure how you would do with so many people around...but you handled it like a champ.  And entertained quite a bit when opening your gifts.  You love the toys that make noise.  You kept pushing the buttons and smiling and dancing to the noises they made.  You love to dance.  You dance at any noise that even slightly sounds like music.  Mommy almost cried when you ate your cake.  I cannot believe that I am the Mommy of a one year old, an amazing one year old at that.  The moment was so surreal for me.  I love you so much.  You finally started crawling this month.  This means our house is extra messy because you get into everything.  Daddy and I cannot keep you out of Daisy's dog food, but we have a hard time keeping Daisy away from you when you eat snacks too.  I have concluded you two just like to share with each other.  You can also pull yourself up now and I think you may be walking real soon.  This month you also learned to "woof" like a dog and it is super cute. Levi Harper McHugh, there is not a day that goes by that we are not so thankful for the blessing you are to our lives.  You bring so much joy, and keep us smiling even when times are rough.  I look forward to what the next year will bring, and then the year after that, and so on.  You are one remarkable little guy.

I just had to share the process of getting this month's photo too.  Not nearly as traumatic as the last two months, but required some Daddy (and Daisy) assistance nonetheless.

Levi's party was the day before his birthday and I still wanted to do something special for him ON his birthday, not that he knows any better.  We saved the gift we got him for his actual day, a Radio Flyer Retro Red Rocket.  I saw this sometime last fall and knew I wanted to get it for his birthday.  But when I went to look for it online in March (?), it had been discontinued.  I was disappointed, but also wanted sure I wanted to pay the big price tag anyways (at least $65.)  Anywho, fast forward to May when I went rummage saling in my favorite Fort Wayne neighborhood.  I pull up to a cute little house and BAM, there it was in all its glory.  I could not believe my eyes.  So I scored it for $20!  I was ecstatic!!!  Levi likes to push its buttons and loves when we push him on it.  He is still not quite big and coordinated enough to get on it himself.  It also vibrates, which scared him for a little while, but he has finally warmed up.  We also took him out for ice cream.  He got his own cone!  Cutie pants.
