Funny Levi Sayings I Don't Want to Forget

When told no to more m&m's Levi told me his tummy was sad. And more m&m's would make it so happy!

At HEB, Levi pointed out many Santa's, I commented "Santa is everywhere these days."

He replied, "No, God is everywhere!"

He still regularly talks about his Huns. They do a lot of the same things that we are doing. My favorite right now is that he'll ask me a question, like "When we spill a lot of water, we have to clean it up, right?"


"Oh, cause my Hun's didn't know that. They beat us home in their race car."

According to Levi, there are 3 Huns, all named Levi who are 3 years old. He will often ask me a question and say Oh, cause my Hun's didn't know that. It makes me smile every time.

Drove to the fancy mall.

Levi and Annika fell asleep on the way there.

Levi transferred to the stroller and stayed asleep the whole time.

I did some returning and exchanging.

As I returned a pair of boots, the man at the store asked if anything was wrong, I said no, just too small.

He checked the size on the box and said "41! Too small?!"

Way to win a customer, buddy.

Then asked if I wanted to look around for any gifts.

Since I have skis for feet.

A while ago, Levi started telling us that he was going to have an airplane party for his birthday.

So we did.

His favorite colors are green and orange.

Apparently, the pictures I took were of the decorations.

I think everyday since you've turned 3, you have said to me "Mom, I'm still free!"  And when we have said something like when you get a little bigger, you can do this, you quickly reply "But, I'm free!"

When you first started talking about your airplane party, you were so convincing that you were going to have one, we couldn't not throw one for you.

When Daddy first showed you the invitation, the plane was blue.  You said, "Dad, I wanted a green plane."  Drew tried to convince you that the plane was really great blue, but you knew exactly what you wanted.  Airplanes.  Green and orange.

You were a really impressive, incredible two year old, I can't wait to see what three brings!

You are a delight.  You are entertaining.  You make all of us laugh.  

Sometimes, we call you Chip because of your chipped tooth (Sage was holding your legs and dropped you on your face- that's the story you tell and it's the truth).  Sometimes, you'll say, "I Chip Yebi!"  

You love to tell me stories as we drive around in the van, a lot of times they involve poop.  

We love you, Chip Yebi!

The Back Story:

Levi started talking awhile ago about "The Huns".

Sometimes, The Huns would come with us places.

Sometimes, they drive their own cars, orange and green and will beat us to our destination.

Sometimes, The Huns were people.

Sometimes, The Huns were dogs.

Every once in a while, he'll ask me if I know where The Huns are.

Monday, I was emptying some boxes out of our bedroom and got them ready to take them out to the recycling.

Levi and Annika were eating lunch so I took the opportunity to take the boxes outside.

Levi came running out.  But, I'd already finished.

As we walked back in the house, he started whining and crying a little.

"My Huns were in the box!  You threw my Huns away!  You threw them away!"

I assured him that I checked the boxes and they were empty.

He reaffirmed that I had indeed thrown them away.

I insisted the boxes were empty and his Huns were somewhere else.

Somehow, it just dropped.

I haven't heard about The Huns and if they did or did not survive my box throwing out.

I'll keep you posted.
