Our Easter...

We thought Levi needed a sock monkey in his Easter basket.

I know he is really too young to care about an Easter basket.
But I wanted to do something for our little guy.
It looks like he was pretty excited about it too!

Ori (Calla's big brother) and Levi matched at church.
We thought they needed their picture together.
Levi wasn't so sure...

Of course we had to have a cousin picture.

And a family picture.

Mr. Levi loves his daddy.

He was pretty handsome in his little Easter outfit.

And look at those cheeks.
Just like his big sister.

It was a good day.
We loved celebrating with our little man.
And we rejoice that HE LIVES!
We cling to this HOPE as we miss Cora on these days.
Not just on Easter, but everyday.

And in case you are wondering, Levi's outfit is from... gap
pants...old navy
And he looked just as cute as all the little girls!

Just so you know - those little boys don't let you dress them that "cute" for ever SO . . . keep it up while you can!!

What a little doll baby!

He does look a lot like Cora.

Boys can definitely be fun to dress, but it's a bit more work finding the adorable clothes than it is for girls. But it can be done!

I very rarely comment on blogs, but your son is so insanely handsome / cute / huggable that I had to say something. I had a girl first, too, and it took a while to get used to little boy clothes. Now I love how my guy looks like a "little man" in them. Bring on more pictures of your son - they never get old! Glad you had a wonderful first Easter with Levi...continued thoughts and prayers for your family.

He is SO cute! Our little man wore those same shoes on lots of compliments:).
Haven't known what to say to you guys lately...still praying though. Keep His love close to your heart & keep up with the hope you have. It'll never replace her, I know, but at least you're trusting in the One who has her.

The cousin picture, it goes without saying; Cora's absence will be forever felt and seen. I don't know why some are called to live a life so filled with bitter sweet. I pray that the sweet is what begins, ends and fills your days, knowing bitter threads its way through it all. A thousand unanswered questions, mostly why?

Dear Jess!

I hope you have lots of wall space and plenty of shelves to display all the adorable pictures of your children! They are to cute for words! Every time I look at the pictures of your children, I think that's a framer, that's a framer and that's a framer! I would be out of space in no time if I were you!

Levi is one handsome boy! He looks so big, as big as Ori in that one picture! The cheeks are absolutely the best.
I love that picture with the basket, in the chair. He does look so excited. And the one with Joel is adorable. And the family one is wonderful! Okay, all of them are!

I have an 18 month old boy and I always complain about the selection of boy clothes. And although cute boy clothes are harder to find, once you find them, they are just as cute as little girls! :)
