Tummy Time!

Levi is getting so big, about 12lbs now. He is 6 1/2 weeks old and he loves "tummy time." He can hold his head up really well and push up with his arms. He does get a bit tired and then ends up laying flat on his tummy and really likes that position. He's very content where ever he is and it takes a lot to upset him. He is cooing a lot and has been tracking for a while now. Levi is a great sleeper!! We usually put him down around 8pm and he is up at 7am. He will usually wake once at night to nurse and even then he doesn't really wake up. It's been such a blessing to get this much rest. I can't wait to see how God is going to use Levi as he gets older.....and also Lulu. They are so different and I could see that even when Levi was still in my belly. The way he acted inside of me is just how he is now, calm and content. It's amazing how God creates life and gives a baby 9 months of a warm place to live before coming out but they still take on their personality from very early on in the womb. I remember how Lulu used to flutter in my tummy non stop and those flutters became kicks that were non stop and to this day she is always moving and dancing. Levi would flutter and take long periods of rest then he would flutter some more, then he started kicking but not very hard and would have long periods or rest......just like he does now. I just know God has something very special planned for both of them just like he does for every single little baby waiting to be born.
"For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother's womb. I will give thanks to you You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. Psalm 139: 13-16

I just want to hold you, Levi. Kiss you and love you up!
Someday, maybe Mom & Dad will let you spend the night. Cinnamon Toast is always for breakfast. Lulu is the best cinnamon toast maker.She will show you how it's done.

What an angel!! He already looks so strong and coordinated, and I just love that bald head. My 3rd boy didnt grow any hair until he was 2!! Kept him looking babyish for a long time.
