Updates :)

Sweet Levi,

I cannot believe two months have passed but we also cant imagine life without you now! You are SUCH a sweet and gentle baby. Every day you grow more and more alert which makes my job even more fun. You started to smile around 5 weeks. I still remember the first real one you gave me. It was about 6 in the morning after one of your feedings and you were laying on me and I looked down at you and you were just smiling the sweetest smile I have ever seen. On the day you turned 6 weeks old you did your first 6 hour night stretch. I felt like a new woman! Who knew that me (who loved sleep) could totally not care about waking up multiple times in the night- love will do that to you :) We took you for your 2 month check up and you weighed 14 lbs 12 oz and were 24 1/4 in long! You were 90 percentile in weight and height and 85 in head circumference. You are a big, proportionate baby :) You are now wearing 3 month clothing (which is starting to get tight already!) and size 2 diapers!! The night after you turned 2 months you did an 8 hour stretch of night sleep! I woke up at 4 am and had to go check on you because you were in such a deep sleep. I think we have turned a sleep corner because in the week since you have done a few 7 hour and 6 hour stretches! Yay!!! You have already been to the beach 3 times in your short life! You do so good in the car. Your dad is crazy about you! He loves to get into his bathing suit and get in the bath with you and you absolutely love this! You kick like crazy and talk in the bath. Maybe you will be a swimmer like your uncle V! In the last two weeks you have developed quite the little personality. You love to smile and kick on your changing table in the mornings. Those times are my favorite. You also are loving to lay and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Your sweet cousin EB also loves him- looks like a trip to Disney will be in our future :) We have started to do morning walks with crazy Grady. You love them. We put on Pandora and are on our way! You love any 'chill' music. We usually play Dave Barnes or Jack Johnson. We have started to get somewhat of a schedule. You wake up between 8 and 9 and have your first feeding. We then go downstairs and you watch Mickey while I have coffee and read. Then we take our walk and that wears you out. When we get back you take your morning nap. You eat again around my lunch time :) and then you are awake for another hour or so. Then you take your long afternoon nap. This can sometimes be a 3 hour stretch! You then have more awake time and eat and we wait for dad to get home. You may take an evening cat nap while me and dad eat dinner. You then get your bath and eat one last time and go down around 9. You are such a joy to be around. You never cry unless you are hungry or tired. I am so thankful God put you in our lives! We cant wait to see how you continue to grow! We love you!

You LOVE your daddy
