The Rudds Visit!

The Rudds arrived on Thursday around 3 in the afternoon. Within minutes, our quiet apartment was full of laughter, screaming and chattering of four excited children. We had a great few days together. I wish it could have lasted longer, but all things must come to an end. Because I was so busy enjoying my time with these wonderful people, I didn't get as many pictures as I would have wanted to fully capture our time together.

Friday morning- can you think of a better way to start the day?

Ginger watching an animal at the zoo.

Katie getting some snuggles with Levi- not sure who enjoyed it more. Levi loved cuddling with Katie.

What great timing on the picture. Nice job, Daniel.

The kids enjoying the polar bear. (from a safe distance)

I love Will's faces.

Enjoying the children's zoo.

Isaac enjoying the carousel.

The train at the end of the day was a big hit.

Really, it was.

Seriously.

First time Daniel's changed a diaper in a long time.

Headed to the falls.






"Where is the trolley stop? Is it here?"
"I don't know- I think so- that is what the map says?"
(notice the sign in the background)

So this *is* where the trolley stops. :)

Thank you for traveling so far with your four children to meet Levi and spend a couple days with us. We enjoyed every moment.

Three Month Levi

On Wednesday Levi enjoyed his 3 month birthday. He had a wonderful day at home and I was able to take some great pictures of him. These pictures are from the last few weeks.

Levi has his hands in his mouth most of the time. He loves to suck on them. When nothing else is readily available, he will suck on his lip.

New friends, Sterling, Amanda, and Quinn (she is hiding in the wrap).

Happy Levi at the park.

Enjoying time at the park with dad.

Levi is reading his book. He enjoys looking at all of the animals.

"Mom are you still watching me?"

This was taken on Wednesday.

Levi is a very happy baby and I love his smile.


Exhausted after a long day of activities. He is a wonderful sleeper.

Levi Loves Youtube

The other night I was watching a video of Josh Groban while holding Levi. He enjoyed watching the video and when it finished playing he was sad. We played it again and captured some of his excitement on video.




***side note: all videos of Levi will now be posted on My Youtube account, which is: youtube.com/tarapetty***
