"You can't see me!
Where am I?"
"Peek-a-Boo! HERE I am!"
Nana is with Levi this week! Uncle Luke and I drove down on Friday last week and we are here to help out -- to get ready for Little Sis, who will arrive in October. Meanwhile, I am getting to take care of Levi--so Jamie can get things done. Jamie is painting, Luke is earning his journeyman's card--she's teaching him everything she knows about that skill.
Oh, I just can't tell you how much fun we are having. When he gives me a hug, I just melt. When he pats my hair I just want to giggle, so I do. We play silly games and I crawl around on the floor and play with him.
The times I treasure the most, though, are when he will let me hold him close, and rock him again like he did when he was tiny and wasn't so curious about everything around him.
A soft head of sweet-smelling hair underneath my chin does wonders for my soul. It doesn't matter that millions of tomatoes wait for me at home, what is aching today, or that a hot flash just blasted up my shoulders and onto my neck and ears...not a bit.
This little man makes me forget--everything but HIM.
Levi is as smart as a whip and busy, busy, busy. He gets around quite fast. A little walking and a lot of crawling. So much progress for fourteen months. He says a lot of words and loves flashcards, which I find so funny. He has a ton of animal flashcards. He loves books and his tractors...tractors the very best.
Who knew love could multiply to infinity?
Yes, ...to infinity, and beyond!
