seriously spoiled

Before Griffin was born I was a little worried about how Levi would feel about not being the center of attention anymore. I had no idea what to expect. Although it has taken a little time for him to get used to sharing his mama, I should have never been concerned about him not getting attention. Having a baby brother was probably the best thing that ever happened to Levi. Our friends and family have been so sweet to him. And the gifts this little boy has been given...insane!! He is one loved little boy.

 There were many days when daddy would come home from work with gifts for Levi and Griffin. Always very exciting. One of the best days was when daddy came home with a gift from his John Deere salesman. Awesome.

 Everything John Deere that a little boy could want. Lots of green tractors of course.

 And the camo John Deere hat. It has hardly left his head since.

 Levi got several other tractors after Griffin was born. We have been playing lots and lots and lots of tractors around here.

And trains too.

 Just today Levi and Griffin got a combine {so exciting!} and new shirts in the mail.

They even got a gift all the way from Australia from a blog reader. Thank you Michelle! Levi is loving his Australian ABC book. So fun. Levi shouldn't run out of toys for awhile. Between the tractors, balls, sand buckets, crayons, play dough, and books I think he should stay busy...for a least 5 seconds, right?!?!

 Joel and I joked that if we would have known how many toys Levi would get, we would have saved half of them for Christmas. Our Christmas shopping would have been done!! Don't worry...we let him open them all.

 Thank you to the many people who showered us with gifts and loved my boys so well. 

We are beyond grateful.

And seriously spoiled.

Aw, Jessica! He is adorable... it's funny how we worry about things that end up not being a big deal at all. I worried and worried again each time we got ready to add another kiddo to the mix and it always worked out wonderfully! Blessings!

So pleased the package arrived safely. Even if Griffin's arrival did beat it leaving my desk. Where it had been sitting since...gulp....July! Dear me :(

Thank you for your updates Jess. Prayers for all of your family continue from our little family on the other side of the planet!

I'm so happy to hear that Levi is adjusting so well...and being showered with love and gifts!

From what I could glimpse of it, your house is lovely, too.

How is Mr. Griffin doing?

You have adorable little boys! But my question is, did you make the pillow on the bench in the first picture? :)
