Such a big boy!!

Today I put Levi in the cart for the first time. At Costco they have two seats in their carts so it worked perfectly. Half way through shopping we had a diaper emergency and after taking care of that I put him in my front carrier and he napped the rest of the way. This little denim jacket is actually a "Levi Strauss" jacket that my Aunt Tamar bought for Levi. I love it on him!!

Here is Levi swinging for the first time. He loved it!!! We went to the park with my mom last week while she was on her mid-winter break. It felt like springtime.

♥ ♥ Happy Valentine's Day #2 ♥ ♥

Look at what our Valentine got us! Lulu and I were so excited to get roses. Mark made our Valentine's really fun. Normally I get chocolates too but I gave up eating sweets so Mark was "sweet" enough to not tempt me. Lulu's pink rose.Mommy's red rose.

We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19

Levi is just starting to sit on his own. He can sit for a minute or two and then he starts to tip over. He's getting good at putting his arms out to catch himself......somtimes.

Today We Walked and Walked Some More.

My morning didn't start off too well. I chose to sleep in just a bit longer then I normally do, so my quiet time with the Lord was cut short. It's amazing to me that if I'm having a great day it's because I put God first and spent my first part of the day with Him. Praying and spending time in the Bible is so important for me because I really do go to God to get me through each and every day. Being a wife and mom is so rewarding for me but it would be impossible if I didn't have God. My day's are truly a gift from God and I need to go to Him for my guidance each and every day. So, once Mark read from the Bible and prayed for us and headed off to work I bundled us all up and went for a walk. I spent an hour in prayer while walking. What a refreshing hour that was. Here was my view......Lulu sang to Levi while I was praying. The hour walk was great because Levi got his morning nap and Lulu got some fresh air. Then after we were home for a bit and ate lunch we got bundled up again (not as much since the sun was out) and went for another walk. This time it was to the grocery store. I needed a few items and we all needed to burn some energy. Lulu walked the entire way to the store. It's just under a mile to the grocery store. Then she walked around the entire store helping me get the things we needed to buy.Here is Lulu looking over a small bridge. She was looking at the small creek that went under it.Here we are in the parking lot of Safeway after our fun walk.Here is Lulu sitting in the "car" cart. I have never actually used the "car" cart. They seem to be loads of fun but Lulu enjoys walking the store and helping me grab things. On the way home both Lulu and Levi were tired and relaxed. There is nothing better then prayer, fresh air and some exercise. My morning quiet time will now be extending into a early morning walk. Praise God for good weather!!

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7

Going to G.G's

Today we went and visited my grandma. Lulu calls her G.G. because she is her great-grandma. We live really close to the retirement community that G.G. lives in so we are able to go visit quit a bit. Whenever we drive by in the car Lulu always yells "hi G.G's house"Levi was of course just as sweet as can be. He even rolled over for G.G. while we were visiting. When I was little grandma always had little toys around her house for me to play with. They weren't the "typical" toys but they were always so much fun. Nothing has changed because G.G. still has the most interesting things for Lulu to play with. One of Lulu's favorite things to play with is G.G.'s remote control for her lights. So we usually have a light show while Lulu pushes all the buttons on and off a few times until she is bored with that and goes onto the next thing. After we visit for a bit in her apartment we all pile into the elevator and head up to the dining room for lunch. There's always a table reserved for us right by the window and Lulu knows right where to go.We have been having lunch with G.G. since Lulu was a newborn. It's been fun for my grandma's friends to see Lulu grow and now they are all getting to know LeviHere we all are. These are my grandma's only great-grandchildren (so far). What a special thing to have great-grandchildren but especially for them to have a great-grandma.
