Not home to see the Lil’ Trucker

Levi makes his way down the stairs.

My little trucker is growing up. Today we took Levi to the doctor for his 15-month appointment.

Seriously. Where did 15 months go?

Levi can climb both up and down the stairs, walk backwards and understand almost everything you say to him. Especially when he plays peek-a-boo.

Today he weighed in at 24 pounds 9 oz,  standing 30 and 3/4 inches tall. He’s not setting records in either of those categories, but he is a Yeager after all.

It is hard to be mad at him when he’s acting all cute.
