New Toy

Daddy + Moby = Very Happy Levi


This is the first time Levi used his new toy. He really loves it.

Chillin in his diaper on a hot day.

I love all of Levi's faces. He is very expressive. He continues to make new noises and is now smiling frequently. I brought him to the doctor last week (he had been crying for hours and it seemed like he was in pain- but he was just exhausted and unable to settle himself down.) and he weighed 11 pounds 6 ounces. He is a very healthy boy.

Lots of Levi

Levi is getting so big. I can not get over how quickly he is changing and growing. I don't think I will ever get used to it. He weighs over ten pounds now and is very strong. He has pretty good head control and has rolled over a few times. Levi loves to explore his world- looking around and taking everything in. He is making lots of new noises and learning how to get what he wants quickly. Lucky for us, he seems to be settling in to a somewhat regular schedule.

More Pictures of Levi

Levi's first bottle. It is so nice to be able to pump and have Tony feed him.

Moments before Levi let us know he was done with the photo shoot.

I laid Levi down for a minute to get dressed, and returned to find him like this. I think he might be a bed hog like his mom.

I love watching him sleep.

Sleepy boy so happy to see his dad after a long day at work.

Four Weeks

Four weeks ago we were welcoming our son into the world. Since that day, we have had very few dull moments.

Levi has had a few baths and loves them. The warm water is soothing on his belly when is really fussy.

Levi's umbilical cord fell off, and he has the cutest little belly button.

Little more than two weeks ago, Levi started having fussy spells. It started with a four hour crying session. At this point they think he is just gassy/colicky. Yesterday he had a dr appointment to make sure there wasn't something more going on. The doctor ordered X-rays to rule out a condition that would require surgery. Fortunately the picture was good.

Levi now weighs 10 pounds. He has started cooing and is very alert when he is awake.

All of our parents have now made the trip to come meet their first grand baby. Each visit was unique and we are glad that they were able to come.

We have taken Levi on several walks and a few fun outings. He loves riding in the car and going for walks, either in his stroller or snuggled in the moby.

Tony continues to be an amazing father and husband. While having a baby is certainly stressful, we continue to work well together and are learning how to navigate life with a baby. I am reminded often how great our life is and am more in love with Tony each day.

I am looking forward to all of the upcoming firsts and trying to savor every moment.
