Levi turned one month old yesterday! I know every parent says this, but I can hardly believe that much time has passed already! Levi smiles at us now (real smiles ... not just gas), and he is "talking" quite a bit more. Just like his mother, he is kind of a loud talker. He enjoys taking "showers" in the kitchen sink instead of fully-submerged baths. He is even outgrowing some of his newborn clothes.
We got to have our one-month doctor's appointment yesterday, too. Levi currently weighs 9 pounds 6.75 ounces, one pound more than his birth weight. He also measured 22.5 inches in length. The doctor didn't say what percentile he is in for his height and weight, but it seems like his growth is progressing normally. (I was trying to read the little marks on the growth chart, but it was too small to see. I think Levi is somewhere in the 50-75% range for all his measurements.)
Overall he is a fairly happy boy. When he has a bad day, he has a really bad day, but when he's feeling good, life with Levi is absolute bliss! We love our little guy!
Below are a few photos we took to mark Levi's one-month birthday. As you can see, we had some trouble taking a flattering shot.
