The other night, Levi surprised me by sleeping 11 hours. But... this is why:

Does anyone else have a thumb sucker?

Today was Levi's two month appointment, and he weighed in at 13lbs 9oz and is 23 1/4" long. Where did my little baby go? Just for fun, I pulled out Elijah's growth chart to compare their sizes at the same age... Elijah was 9lb 13oz and 20 3/4" That's almost a 4 pound and 3 inch difference! It'll be interesting to see if the boys end up being about the same size when they're older or if Levi will outgrow his "big" brother. On the down side, I found out Elijah has double ear infections AGAIN. Poor boy.

Here are some Levi pictures...

Nadine is a "finger sucker"--and it certainly seems to get her to sleep.

Hey Julie,

Jude isn't a thumb sucker, but he's decided in the last two or three days that he can't sleep without a pacifier. Unfortunately, he doesn't really know how to use it, and he pops it out of his mouth every 20 minutes or so...and panics! We've had some interesting days. Luckily at night, he sometimes doesn't realize he's popped it out, and we get a few hours of good sleep!

Levi is adorable. I can't wait till the boys meet each other. Liam does suck his thumb. I was fighting it at first, now I am all for it. It quiets him and I love that!

11 hours! Wow, I'm now convinced scheduling is the way to go. Ethan does suck his thumb. I think it's so cute...
