Everything Is Good!

Levi is 5 weeks old as I write this and doing great! I know I haven’t checked in much lately but I’m sure I will get back into more regular posting eventually.

At his one month appointment last week he was nearing in on 12 pounds and is 22 inches long. He is a strong, healthy little guy and I am so grateful.

Dylan is in love with Levi and takes really good care of him. He has taken it upon himself to hold Levi’s hand in the car when we drive and he comforts Levi when he cries; patting him, kissing him and saying things like, “Don’t cry, Levi. Everything is good. Dylan is here.” I’ve seriously never prompted any of it and I just love watching them together.

Levi’s most notable quirk is that he is a grunter. He hardly ever actually cries but he grunts a ton. He sounds like an old man most of the time (at least, how I remember my dad’s dad sounding getting up from a chair) and I find it totally endearing. I need to get it on video before he stops doing it! I call him “Sir Grunts-a-lot”.

The main downside of not posting as frequently right now is that I am not preserving as many pictures of our family at a time when I really want to. I’ll include as much as I can here now because I know the grandparents are eager for more pictures!

Also, we got a trampoline.

I leave you with a video of the boys that have stolen my heart:

What a change in Levi since he was born, but he still looks like David!!!!! I’m happy for you that he is an easy baby! And, Dylan has taken to him like fish to water!!! It is so cute to see the brotherly love developing, and Dylan taking on the role of the older brother!!
