Many of you have asked, 'Does Levi look like Noah?' and of course David and I talk about it too...the comparing of the children has begun.  So I am posting some pics of Noah in his first couple of weeks and Levi these last two weeks, what do you think?  (BTW I think they look(ed) alike)

Easter Weekend

 David has had off Thursday, Friday and Monday so it has been great to have him around as we all transitioning from being a family of 3 to a family of 4 (or for those of you who count pets 4 to 5). We had a great weekend with friends and family celebrating our risen Lord!

We enjoyed brunch with friends on Saturday morning.  My sister, Emily, and Mom came up of Saturday for the afternoon and we enjoyed Aunt Emily's spoiling.  We shared a snack and dyed Easter eggs and went out for dinner.  

We did a Easter basket scavenger hunt with Noah this year giving him written clues to where the next clue was to get closer to his basket.  He did pretty well with the clues and it is definitely we will make a tradition for our boys.

Levi went to church for the first time and slept like a champ.  After church we headed to David's parents house for Sunday dinner and some relaxation.  The weather was beautiful for a couple walks and playing in the yard.

Levi Stats: 8 pounds 2 ounces - he also let me sleep for two 4 hour stretches last night!!  I am praying this will turn into a routine (if not longer as he gets bigger).

Here are some more pictures because really that is what you all want to see!  We are doing well.  Levi is gaining ounces like a champ.  All of the grandparents have left (but are not too far away, THANK GOD).  And we are settling into what could resemble a routine.  Noah adores his little brother and asks when he will be able to play and walk.  He also asked me tonight on our walk if we can have another baby!!

Noah's face as he walked in to meet his little brother for the first time!

 The nurses put Levi's footprints on David's shirt!  They said I can heat set it, I haven't tried yet...any ideas before I try?

He's Here!

Levi Eric was born at 4:16 on April 14.  He's 7 lbs, 10 oz, 19.5 inches long.  Looks like he'll have some blonde hair! Everyone is healthy, happy, but relatively tired.  We went into the hospital at 9:30 last night, so much shorter than Noah's labor...

Some Early Easter

Noah and I have had the opportunity to do some Easter egg hunting with friends.  And as much as everyone is telling me to sit still, being 9 months pregnant, but I didn't want Noah to miss out on activities and times with friends so I waddle along like an Easter duckling.  And really who am I kidding, I am not that good at 'sitting still'.  Here are a few shots from our hunts.  The first set is with other mommas and kiddos that Noah and I have met and they have all become such great friends for both of us as we are closing in on being here a whole year - can you believe that a year has almost passed since our big move?!?  (The pics loaded out of order, sorry)

Our second hunt was a put on by the city and a local hospital and it was crazy busy.  I didn't get as many pics mainly because I was afraid that Noah was going to be trampled by the crazy parents that were grabbing the eggs for their kids instead of letting them do it.  There was also a local fire truck there and I am pretty sure Noah enjoyed that much more than the hunt itself.

Can you see all those specks out there in the grass?  Those are all eggs, they announced that they had stuffed 20,000 eggs!

This is, quite possibly, the funniest thing Noah has ever done.  Yes, there was a bit of prompting by dad, but it's still hilarious.  In case you can't tell, he says (repeatedly), "Hi, my name is Sir Dunks A lot."  Enjoy!
