I have a feeling my little man is going to be 
spending lots of time with his daddy in the future.
Learning how to be a farm boy of course.
But for now, we just visit daddy.

Joel is busy planting corn these days.
They work pretty late, so Levi and I went out to visit him in the field.
Otherwise, Levi might never get to see him!

Joel told him all about his fancy new planter.
And his green tractor.
We like our tractors green, right Levi?

And Levi even got to go for his first tractor ride.
No smiles.
He was too busy checking everything out.

About five minutes into our ride 
the sun was going down and Levi fell asleep.
I am considering sending him out to the field for all of his naps.
Maybe that would solve our cat-napping problem.

Poor Joel got the flu yesterday.
Planting and the flu is not a good combination.
I'm just hoping Levi and I don't get it too!

I've visited your blog a couple of times but had to comment on this one! I know that your husband must LOVE taking Levi out with him. My husband is a grower, and gets so much enjoyment out of taking our kids out in to the groves with him! It's such a wonderful bonding time.

They are so precious!!! There is something so captivating that your hubby is a farmer- my husband's family are farmers in IL, and I love going there and seeing all the fields!

That is unique in my experience - napping on a tractor, how cool! Perhaps not very convenient, though, even on a farm.

Stay away, flu!!! I hope Joel feels better soon...

My grandpa owned a John Deere tractor store when I was younger. I really miss those days. What a cute little family.

That's so cute.

My bad baby (3 yr old) is loving going out on the mower lately at our new farm. But it's not nearly as sweet as tiny little Levi!

Jess -

I love seeing pics of your little man. Thanks for posting them! My husband and I are having a little boy in August and the theme to his room is "My Little Farm." It is adorable.

My husband had the flu/bacterial infection over the weekend as well and I was keeping my fingers crossed that I didn't get it, too. So far so good!

Take care!

How cute are those pictures!! :) Those cheeks look so kissable!! The tractor rides that I have taken were always calming for me to. I never fell asleep though, but I probably could of. I said a prayer that you and sweet Levi don't get the flu. Thanks for sharing with us.

I have been following your blog for some time and enjoy reading
it. This post of yours reminds me of a book series I read by Traci DePree, The Lake Emily Series. It's enjoyable, not sure if you have time to read, but thought you might like to know about!

What a sweet post! My granddaddy like his tractors green, too, so much so that he was one of the owners of the dealership in their small town. I still remember him letting me "drive" the tractor when I was 3 or 4 years old. Thanks for bringing back those memories!

Oh, I hope his flu passes quickly and you remain healthy!
I seriously don't think that Levi's cheeks could get any better. Oh. My. Goodness.

I'm jealous you have a green tractor. I sing to my 4 year old almost daily, "I'll take you for a ride on my big green tractor. We can go slow or we can long as I'm with you boy it don't matter..." (Thank you Jason Aldean.)

He asked to see my big green tractor, I pointed to his daddy's little green riding lawnmower. He wasn't impressed.

I check in on you guys often, but don't know if I've ever left a comment. Levi is so stinkin adorable!! I love his Easter outfit :)!

You guys are an inspiration to many and you have been a blessing to me! We are walking through childhood cancer with our 4 year old daughter right now and have been for the last year and a half. I have found encouragement many tough nights through your blog so thank you!

Levi is big kid. How much does he weigh? Reminds me of my son who, as I remember, weighed 30lbs at 18 months. He turned out to be 6'3" and wears a size 14 shoe.

((longtime lurker coming out to say hi))

Cute!! Levi looks so much like his sister in the second to last photo. My grandpa is a farmer in ND and a John Deere guy as well, so I love the pictures and the green. :)
