Three Months Old

Micah is three months old today.  He is such a sweet boy!  His smiles are absolutely darling, and when he shrugs his shoulders and covers his smile with his hands, my heart just melts!  He's an awfully big boy, too.  I'm starting to have trouble holding him with one arm because he is so long.  Lately he has been working hard to roll onto one side.  Levi has been getting a kick out of trying to make Micah laugh.  He and I will stick out our tongues and make funny sounds.  When Micah giggles, Levi laughs, and I can't help but thank God for this wonderful family!  I am so blessed to get to spend every day with these two boys!
At breakfast this morning, Micah was so happy and smiley!  Unfortunately, I missed my chance to take pictures of him in his best mood of the day.  When I started our photo shoot, he was starting to get sleepy.  (Can you tell he was kind of zoned out in the picture above?  Still pretty cute, though, right?)

Levi saw us taking pictures, and he wanted a piece of the action.  It was actually his idea to sit next to his brother in the rocking chair.  (Levi got a hair cut later today, thank goodness.)

Our first Easter as a family of four!  After a busy morning at church, we had dinner at my parents' house.  We all got Easter baskets, and Levi especially enjoyed digging into his.


 Next we went to John and Amy's house for an egg hunt and dessert.  Levi and Maddie got to find all the eggs this year--92 total.  It took Levi a week of practicing before he really got the hang of hunting for Easter eggs.  I was proud of him for not stopping and eating the contents of every single egg right away; he managed to put most of them in his basket without opening them.

 It was so great to see Avery Margaret for the first time.  She was four days old!  I love this next photo of Beth and Jill with their new grandchildren.
Last Thursday, at Grandpa Gorham's house, Stephanie put together an amazing day of egg dying and hunting.  It was so fun!  Not only were Bob's four grandsons there, Stephanie also had to babysit three family friends.  (In the other family, the kids are named Claire, Anna, and . . . Levi.  We had to start calling them Big Levi and Little Levi.)  We had seven kids, and it was so much fun!
