The Business of Being...Levi

Well I've been hanging around this world for  THREE MONTHS now and here's what I think about things so far... 
I've had another fun filled month! It started off by celebrating my first Easter! I wore my first suit on Easter with my little brown dress shoes that Tati gave me. My suit was seersucker and I was quite the dapper fellow, let me tell you!

Easter was a lot of fun! I attended all the services leading up to Easter with mommy, the Maundy Thursday service, Good Friday service and Easter service. I got a great nap during all three services in my carrier, so mommy got to enjoy all three services as well as long as she was standing and bouncing me in the back of the sanctuary. I was tempted to wake up when she sat down, so she hung out in back and we made it work together. I'm good like that. My grandpop and grandma were in town for my first Easter and I skyped with nana and pappy, so they could see how cute I looked in my Easter duds.
I've continued traveling and meeting all sorts of new people.  Mom and Dad took me on another airplane, so we could go see mommy's college roommate, Thais, and her growing family in Chicago. I was there for my "God-brother's" dedication and I got to hang out with his brothers, Isaiah and Sammy all weekend long.  James and I are super close in age, only two months apart, so we're bound to be best buds like mom and Thais. It was also cool to see how much I've grown because James is about the size I was when I was new and now I'm so much bigger than him! I also met my new friend Hope this month who is one month old and I am way bigger than she is! Mom thinks it's crazy how fast that happened, but I'm eating like a champ so it's no wonder. She tells people I'm growing like a weed.
Then to wrap up this month, my OSL aunties came to visit me in Boston. My friend Liam got to come along too since he's only a couple weeks younger than me. We like to do a lot of the same thing...swing, hang out on my playmat, nap, eat, cry occasionally and ride in the stroller or carrier with our mommies. Spring has finally sprung in Boston, so Mom's started taking me for walks in my stroller on nice days. Luckily the weather was really nice while my aunties were visiting, so we strolled around and even picnicked in my front yard, the Boston Common, and I showed them all around my city. I wasn't sleeping as much during the day, but I did sleep on mommy through dinner on the North End at Fiore when my aunties gave mom her Tiffany H necklace. I guess it's a tradition they started giving the necklace when each person got married, but mommy was already married to daddy, so my aunties decided to give it to her when she had her first baby...ME!!! Just another reason mommy is happy I finally came along. You're welcome (wink).
Speaking of things I like to do lately, I have to tell you how much I absolutely LOVE my playmat these days! I grab for my toys and kick my legs to the music. It's so much fun, let me tell you! Mom has taken quite a few videos of me playing. I also have tummy time on my playmat and it's getting better. I'm starting to hold my head up more and I don't cry during it like I used to. It's not so bad after all.

I've also started to be more awake during the day and actually play a little when I have playdates. Mom takes me to a play group on Tuesday mornings. When I first started going, I would sleep the whole time, but now I try to stay awake and play with my little friends. It's lots of fun and will only get better I bet! I am also sleeping a little longer at night. I go to sleep anywhere between 9:30 and 10:30 and then I usually sleep until between 3:30 and 4 when I wake up to eat real quick and then go right back to sleep.   I then wake up between 6 and 7 and will eat and cuddle with mom for a little while she wakes up. I can tell she appreciates the longer stretches of sleep because she seems more rested as far as I can tell.
My cry has gotten stronger and I still hate a wet diaper. Mom has me wearing my cloth diapers now for the most part (except when we're traveling and at night when I sleep), so when I feel wet I make sure everybody knows it. Other than making me look like I have a big ole butt, they're pretty cute, at least that's what everybody says.

Last but certainly not least, at my two month appointment my doctor said I'd start interacting more this month and he was so right. I'm not making my parents work for the smiles as hard anymore. My mom and dad are just eating up my smiles and coos. I am most smiley first thing in the morning, especially on my changing table. Mom is constantly grabbing her camera to take my picture now that I'm such a smiley guy. The jury is still out on whether I like having my picture taken so much. I'll keep you posted. Oh, and I also discovered my hands this month! I like to suck on them now and then. They're pretty tasty!
Of course this has been another month of firsts...
      Wearing cloth diapers.
      Meeting Aunt Thais and the Carter boys.
      Staying awake for playgroup.
Overall,  in my  THIRD MONTH I've enjoyed the business of being SMILEY.
