It's tough to be 2... weeks old!
I look forward to the day when I can tell everyone how awesome my son is and how he's the most talented child alive, but currently his skill set is very limited. However, I will say that Levi poops and sleeps like a champ! And anyone that wants to dispute that can come visit and judge for themselves.
The only exciting thing to note from the last week is that Jenny and I survived our first week of being full time parents! Jenny isn't a big fan of being a mom from about 1:00 am to 7:00 am, but I try to help when I can. For all you parents out there this may sound all too familiar, but being up since 4:00 this morning is definitely not one of the highlights of fatherhood. Personally, I think Levi was just excited to start celebrating being 2 weeks old today! (I thought we should enjoy a beer together to celebrate!)
During the last week Levi and mommy pretty much had a ton of free time to themselves, considering I worked about 60 hours last week to play catch-up. However this weekend he got to be busy and meet uncle Drew (Jenny's brother), Mimi (Jenny's grandmother; John's mom), aunt Jane (John's sister), and uncle Jim (John's brother). He got to visit lots of fancy restaurants and even chillax at the Four Seasons, too.
All in all, Levi is a very well behaved baby. He sleeps regularly and is very easy to comfort. He eats a lot and is looking a little chunkier! Today marks his 2 weeks of being ex-vivo and shockingly enough his closest relatives made another visit. (Thanks for dinner Ed and Marty!) They have a commanding lead on Levi visits and if I'm not mistaken, I think I heard Levi call Aunt Martha Gigi tonight (just kidding mom...). Also, thanks for all those that have visited Levi so far and be assured that we love the company.
Well, I'll just post some more pictures and a funny little video and call it a night. Have a wonderful evening all and thanks for taking an interest in our little family! ~Casey
P.S. I think he's getting sick of the camera in his face... :)
