Levi is now smiling a lot!  He started smiling at about 2 weeks old but they were so brief it was impossible to catch on camera.  Now at 4 weeks, he is smiling tons.

I know this stage changes so fast and I'll forget all the incredibleness of it, so I'm trying to take it all in while I can.  One friend reminded me how awesome it is that we have the capability to take pictures and video to help us remember.  Years ago that wasn't an option!

Levi isn't the only one around here, that wears a smile!

Mornings like these make me smile.  It doesn't take long for me to change my perspective from, "I'm wasting time here snuggling with my newborn" to "No time is wasted snuggling with one of God's children!"

Levi loves to look up.  His head is always back trying to see all that's above him, I guess.  It seems to me, it would hurt his neck but he sure likes it. I can tell that he hears my voice and is really studying his mama face.

"Oh, my mama is so beautiful!"

These were taken yesterday at 5 weeks old.
I love this elephant but it is about as big as he is right now.

This is one of my favorite onesies because of the color and it says "Apple of my Eye".

This picture reminds of Popeye the Sailer Man!

Micah says so many darling this these days.  I wish I could remember them all.  We sing to him every night and he requests 4 songs never calling them by their actual titles.  Jesus Love Me is "the Bible song" The doxology is "the Amen song" and the funniest is Amazing Grace.  He calls it "the wretch song!" because He saved a wretch like me!

We also sing This Little Light of Mine and he holds up his foot as his light and we do all the motions with his toes!  You know, hide it under a bushel, No!  and Don't let Satan blow it out!  We blow on his toes and he giggles and giggles.

Just about every time Micah holds Levi like in the pictures above, I grab the camera and take their picture so now he tells me to.  As soon as they get situated, he says "Take my picture, ok?"

These two will be best buds one day soon and I get to experience it with them.  Thank you Jesus!
