It's Eric!

Every morning, after our diaper change, a quick snack, and putting on our cloths, we read! Mommy loves to read, and Levi tolerates it. I have gotten SO MANY books for Levi, and we read a new one every day. That is, after we read our Eric Carle. Notice it's prominent place on the dresser, reserved for only the best.

Eric Carl was my first favorite author. We go way back to Elementary school. There is something in the illustrations or story that I LOVE! They are easy to read, the pictures are easy for Levi to see (his favorite is the Blue Heron), and most of mine are board books. That is important lately, because one of Levi's favorite reading time activity is to kick at the book in Mommy's hand. His aim is getting better, great... We've found some fun Eric Carle activities online, and when Levi is a little older, Mommy plans on using them in fun Mommy School lessons! That guy... Eric is our favorite!

Thankful For...


This year I'm Thankful for a lot! I could write you a list, but I'll just get straight to my #1. Surprise! It's Levi! I mean, come on, look at that face. Is it weird that I think Levi is his very cutest when I'm burping him. His little face is so close to my lips that he just gets smothered in kisses!

These pics are my little man at his first Thanksgiving. We dressed him up and hauled him all the way up to Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. We got to spend the day with some fun cousins, Great Aunt and Uncle, and Great Grandma and Grandpa. Three babies born this year, you know there was a major cuteness overload!  Levi enjoyed himself. Yum! A big helping of milk, washed down with milk, and some milk on the side. How festive! Happy belated Thanksgiving and now... To CHRISTMAS!
