Seven Years... and Our Boo Boo Baby!

I don't even have an answer or explanation for this picture. Levi went down for a nap with his arms in his sleeves and when Jenny went in to check on him this was the result... I can only assume it has something to do with not wearing a onesie.

Any ways, on to the week of activities at the Jones'... This week Jenny and I celebrated our seven year anniversary of being together as a couple. On a cold Friday night, after an awkward Chinese dinner (thanks Chris), getting lost, a missed playoff game, and hanging with friends, I presented Jenny with a very serious and specific proposal... "I think we should hang out more often." What romance, what eloquent word usage!? What girl wouldn't be swept off her feet!? Jenny was so in love that it took her until 5th period Monday afternoon, when our friend Chris congratulated her on being my girl friend, that she realized that was me asking her out the previous Friday... and the rest is history! Seven years, two colleges, five degrees, a bunch of Class III HD-ZIP genes, a marriage, three state moves, and a Boo Boo Baby later, we're still happily together laughing with and at each other every chance we get!

That's the end of my flashback, here's Levi!

Levi is on the verge of never being able to be left alone again... He hasn't taken more than three or four crawls before falling, but between that, rolling over, and pulling himself on blankets, he gets where and what he wants!

Here I am trying to help him with his form.

Jenny left Levi on that blanket to the left while she went and washed her hands, less than fifteen feet away. In the mean time Levi managed to crawl and roll under the futon. I guess he wanted to see what was in the blue bag.

He also likes to make his way over to our makeshift box of toys and pull it over and play with each toy in about a 10 second rotation.

As part of the celebration of our seven years together I surprised Jenny with a night downtown. We left Levi with our friends Paul and Kindra (thanks again guys!) and spent Friday night at the W Hotel on Lakeshore and enjoyed a fine fondue dinner at Geja's Cafe in Lincoln Park. It was a great time, but boy did we miss that little boy! Here's Jenny the next day hanging with our little man.

This is what we get to look forward to when Levi is done taking a nap or getting up in the morning. He hears his door open and loves to smile at us through the crib bars just begging us to try to resist picking him up... it's impossible.

We'll leave you with a video of Levi working on those crawling skills from earlier this past week. Have a great week everyone and we'll keep praying for you Ashley as we expect there to be a new arrival any day now!
