Happy 1st Birthday to Levi


A man with many names is much loved.

-Ancient Arabic Proverb

That’s why we call him Baby Taco Meat, Meaticus, The Toc, Baby Man, Meats, Lunch Meat, or just Levi.

We adore you Levi Bowen. Thank you for bringing such joy into our lives. We wouldn’t be “us” without you.

Happy birthday.

    Oh my bananas! Pure adorableness is so hard to find these days, and Levi here is a perfect example!

    • Ha – indeed! I wholeheartedly agree. And thank you for saying as much.

  • You do know that Levi shares a birthday with Bilbo and Frodo, right?

  • ~*~Happy Birthday Sweet Levi~*~ It’s still your birthday in Cali, so I’m not too late. 😉 May God bless you and keep you. I always like to pray over a birthday verse(s) and the word “blessed” came to my heart and I was lead to Matthew 5:3-12. May it guild you in it’s right time.
    Love the picture Mr.Hopper and all the ones your wife shared on fb… she has a great gift in photography. Your family is beautiful!
