Baby Bumps!

Man that little guy is getting so BIG! He's feeding himself, crackin' jokes, and running everywhere!

Here's Levi with his buddy Wyatt, just playing with cars

Wow... what did Jenny say to them?

So peaceful

Well, with walking and running comes falling...
poor Levi! He hit the right side of his forehead twice in one day,
at least four times this week :(


Good idea, cool the wound :)

No Levi, on the front of your head

Levi and Jenny play a game called "Na-Night,"
where Levi pretends to take a nap in our bed.
It's super cute!

Hey, lay down, it's nap time!

Levi got to spend an afternoon at the nature museum. He spotted the stuffed Polar Bear from a mile away and instantly said "Rooaaarrrr!" and then had to go back to it over and over again to roar at :)
"Uppy!"
"Naaaaatuuuuure"
This pretty much sums up their personalities...
Chill and... not so chill.


We had the joy of joining in on the Bess Birthday party this weekend.
There was a "sing-a-long" guy and little maracas.

FUN!
Food and Music!

"Hi Lady, wanna be my gurl-fwend?"

Piano-Man!

Who needs a dog when you're toddler will do this?
(I have a chocolate chip on my finger)
Another week in winter busy season, but still lots of laughs and funniness here at TheJonesPod. And for those of you that are wondering how Mama and Inside Baby (how we refer to our little boy-to-be) are doing, they are both doing awesomely. As our doctor said, Inside Baby's ultrasound was gorgeous. Not exactly the wording I would use, but I like it! Lastly, just because Chris said it wasn't official until it was posted on the blog - the final part of my promotion has gone into place, I have a window desk! Have a great start to March everyone and thanks for checking in!

Just helping....

Not a very picture-tastic week here in JonesPod-Land, but not because of a lack of funny events, but simply because Levi never stops. Luckily, a couple of those busy moments were still caught on camera. My personal favorite of the week... Levi "helping" Mama in the kitchen. :)

"Poor buddy, is there something on your finger?"

On a "low" note, Levi took some time to enjoy a picture on the fridge...

Lastly, here's Levi being, well Levi the Ham... putting on a show for his captive audience.

Well, tax season is upon us! I hope you're all enjoying your federal 2% "raise," or like us in Illinois, just glad there was something in place to counter our 2% income tax increase... awesome. Have a great rest of the week everyone and I don't know about you, but I'm saying a prayer tonight for Wisconsin; all those poor sick teachers... (queue eyeroll)

Elmo.... Elmo........Elmo!

Welcome to the next stage in Levi's interests... ELMO! No longer is the morning filed with yells for Mama or Daddy. No, just Elmo and ice cold drink :) And the peak of Elmo enjoyment for our little ducktail is: The Elmo Sing Along Video!
"Elmo, Elmo, Elmo"

And in a shocking turn of events... we moved SOUTH (Chicago) and got stuck in our first SERIOUS blizzard! Additionally, I got to experience my first ADULT SNOW DAY, SWEET! But not so sweet for this guy...


"Levi, what's in the box?"


Elmo bibs...

And some sort of rocker?


ELMO!
Thanks G-wo and Grandpa Mokey!


Coooooool

Sweet Ride Levi

It took Levi a little bit to get use to its "verbal" features...

This week also included Levi's 18 month checkup, and in case there was any question he's still awesome and a genius. And we also had a follow-up ultrasound for Levi's little.... BROTHER! That's right, we're having another little boy! And the ultrasound went very well, other than the fact that it appears he's MORE wiggly than even Levi was.. scary. I guess they'll be good buddies. Thanks again for checking in and putting up with all my exclamation marks as usual :)

PACKERS ARE IN!!!

That's right, in case you didn't hear it... the PACKERS are in the SUPER BOWL! And Levi just had to dance about it. And what's better than just the Packers being in the Super Bowl? How about beating the Bears in the NFC Championship in Chicago, and oh yeah, we live in Chicago to enjoy it!


A low scoring game had Levi a little distracted with Disney stories
So, since the NFC Championship the JonesPod has been pretty busy! I've been out of town for work, Jenny has been playing "single Mom" and Levi is just plain busy and goofy :)

"Levi, I think you missed something amongst your busyness!"

Well, I'm back in town, glad to be with the Pod, and enjoying some extra family time thanks to the blizzard. Keep warm Midwest, and thanks for checking in!


GO PACKERS!
