4 Month Old Stats

The day we left for Texas, Levi had his 4 month old check up. Bless his heart, he wasn't feeling well. The night before, it appeared that he had developed croup with the horrible seal like cough. It didn't seem to bother him, but it kept me up off and on all night. A couple of times, I took him outside in the cool air to see if that would help him breathe better. Fortunately, the humid air in Texas cleared it up rather quickly. Dr. Bob still hears the heart murmur and says there has not been any change. We continue to pray that he will outgrow it by the time he is a year old. If not, we will be referred to a pediatric cardiologist. Here is the comparison of all three boys at 4 months:

Levi: 17 pounds, 2 ounces; 26 and 1/2 inches
Josiah: 18 pounds, 12 ounces; 27 and 1/4 inches
Caleb: 17 pounds, 2 ounces; 27 and 1/2 inches long

Levi continues to be pretty laid back. He gets his fair share of snuggles, probably a little more than the other two since we seem to be more on the go and he enjoys the comfort of being carried in the sling. He loves both of his brothers and his face lights up when they talk to him. Last week, he discovered his toes. It's so cute to watch him roll up and stick one in his mouth. I'll have to try and take a picture of it. He also loves chewing on fingers. He continues to sleep well only waking up to eat. It's hard to believe that he will probably be crawling all over the place by Christmas. He's growing up way too fast!

It is crazy to think he is already 4 months old! It just hit me too that Drew and him aren't too far apart in age. What a great picture!
