Family, Friends and a Celebration!

          Levi is one loved little boy.  He's been home about five and a half months now and is still meeting friends and family for the first time.  While we are blessed to have most of my family nearby, the majority of Luke's family is spread around the country.  These past months he's been able to meet his aunt and uncle in CT, then his Grandma Lisa a short while later.  Last Saturday he met another part of our family here in RI and this week we have had a full house of Luke's relatives....great grandparents, grandpas, aunts, uncles and even a sweet exchange student from South Korea!  Levi has been reveling in the attention and excitement.

So thankful for such great family!
   Levi developed a special attachment to Ramona....probably because she was so sweet with him!

But she really had to get her work done so we set him up right next to her....he thought this was the greatest idea ever!

It was difficult to tell who was working harder........

                                     I mean really.......

Always an adventure with Pa G!

Newport with my sweet family

This precious boy is blessed with some amazing friends and family, (and so are we!) another month and a half he will be turning two!  We are planning a party for Saturday August 17th from 4 to 6pm for anyone who would like to come.  It's a birthday party, but it's also really a celebration of Levi coming home as well as a thank you to all of you for being a part of his journey to us.  This is an absolutely positively no gift party, but we want everyone to feel welcome to stop by (especially if you still haven't met him!!) and celebrate with us! More details to come!
