"Flower Belly of My Fatness...!"

"Welcome back to my life!"

Wow! I can't believe that it's been over two weeks since we posted last. It's just been one of those crazy busy months. Anyways, Levi is doing very well and is a talking machine! He's been giving Jenny a good workout with his need for activity and if you haven't seen him do his spinning dance, well, you better come visit!

Here's Levi in a very matchy matchy outfit, getting ready for a cold day out with Mama

We also got to spend another lovely evening with the Dalach boys!
Levi LOVES babies!
(and yes he still is one)
We've also been trying to spend more time outside now that Levi is a walkin' monster! He loves the park that we live by and says hi and bye to everyone he sees.

So High!

Sammi and Dylan visited two weekends ago. Sammi gave Levi a little Professional touch-up.

All better and tired...

Jenny had a yoga and spa day downtown, so Levi and I got to have a "dude night." We spent the first hour or so going through some of the files and news articles in my briefcase.

"Anything left in there buddy?"


Before we left for Las Vegas last week, the Broglis had an early Halloween party! Levi and I were Allen and Carlos (from "the Hangover" - Post- Jared Subway Diet) and Jenny was Snow Black... still the fairest one of all.

We made it! Here we are in Old Las Vegas (Fremont Strip).

We were in Las Vegas for a full week, so we had to come up with additional activities. The Valley of Fire National Park was quite impressive! Here's Jenny and Steve (we went with the Broglis) chillin' in some funky rock formations.

Did some climbing...

Being fancy on the Strip... drivin' our sweet 300 and on our way home from the Palms!

We had a pretty cool view of the strip and the City Center from our Suite.

Back home in Chicago!
(Thanks for a great time Broglis!)
We were greeted with a care-package from uncle Jim.
Levi can now be a Monster all the time! Levi-Trumpy (Trump is Monster.com's Mascot,
but we like to call him Trumpy as we don't like the Donald)
Caught searching through Mama's purse

And searching through drawers pulled out of the table...

"Hey you... what you think you're doin'?"
Well, that's the last two weeks in a nut shell! Sorry for the delay but thanks for checkin' and have a great rest of the week. I'll be in training all next week, so I'll try to post a few pictures before I leave, but if I don't get a chance have a great next two weeks and make sure you give us a call to come visit and see the Levi Spin Dance (or maybe we'll just post a video soon). God bless!

Also, you may have spent the entire post trying (in vain) to determine the meaning of the title... well, there is no explanation other than it was the lyrics to one of Carli Brogli's Made-up Songs during our trip in Las Vegas. Somehow it was suppose to describe how she felt (FYI ~ she's prego). Well, that's all I have to say. I pretty much just needed to have documentation of its existence for future reference... "flower belly of my fatness!"

"Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for HIM to act."
~ Psalms 37:7a

I vote spin video and some talking ones. Yeah that's it, multiple videos since you missed a few weeks of updating Levi's blog. We suffered, now so do you. Video away.

Love Aunt Jeni

Hi all,
You forgot to add Levi's "Bompa" which he said many times last Thursday. He would stand by the patio doors and knock with one finger and call bompa very plainly. Sooooo cute!!! I couldn't get him to say Goggy though. But we had a great day! See you at Nanny Maude's party on 11-13. We'll get 5 generations pictures for the blog.
Love you all,

I was wondering what the title meant. Thanks for filling me in :0)

Looks like you had a great time in Vegas! It's always nice to get away! No layover in Denver, though?

Nice halloween costumes!

Good luck Jenny- it looks like he's a busy little guy!

I vote for spinning video too.
