Almost 18 months old

Levi had his 18 month check-up today. Unfortunately it revealed that he has another ear infection. He is scheduled to have tubes put in next Thursday. Hopefully that will resolve his persistant ear problems. He measured 34" tall and weighed 27# 10.5oz which ranks in the 90% and 76% respectively.

Levi is demonstrating how to work the new windows.

He really likes to point out the cars and trucks.

Pee-ew. Photo shoot over, time to change a diaper.

This little guy escaped while getting ready for bath-time. Naked truck driver on the loose!

"Hello, World!"

Home Improvement

As usual, there have been home improvement projects underway at the Dickson household. We don't like to let a little thing like the previous project not being quite finished stop us from starting another. The biggest change lately is that most of the carpet has been replaced by engineered hardwoods. I'm so pleased with how it looks. Lucas did a great job. A big 'thank-you' also goes out to Joel for his help. He and Luke stayed up almost all night to finish the floor in the living room.

Here Levi is posing with the dust mask positioned as a yarmulke. Levi was in heaven during the floor projects. He was thrilled to have a cleared out room containing his Daddy at ground level along with lots of tools.

Today a crew came to install new windows. A 'before' shot of a bedroom window:

Visitors from Florida

We're still having issues with our internet connection but here are a few pictures from the week. Grandma and Grandpa were here. It was great to see them and the kids had an especially fun time with all the extra hugs and attention.

quick note

Just wanted to post a quick note to say that we haven't been able to get on the internet thru our home computer for a week now. We're working to get things resolved as soon as possible.

These shots are probably a more accurate representation of the kids.

Play Outings

Look at these adorable kiddos. We met up to play with Makenzie and Jerrika yesterday.

This morning Levi and I went to Deanna Rose. He was especially interested in the puddles and the pigs.

A duel self portrait attempt:

He was not sure what to think of the turkeys at first. You have to admit, those are some crazy looking animals. Also, he jumped a foot when they gobbled at him. After a minute or two, though, he was enthralled with watching them and smiled really big when they made more noise.
