Levi- 2 months

Here is a Levi update. He weighed in at 13 lb 5 oz which is a gain of 5 lbs since her was 3 weeks old and grew 3 inches! He went from 25% in height to 90% and 10% in weight to 90%. He is just fitting in to our family perfectly. He loves to watch his big brothers and sisters. The picture is of the kids at the nature preserve on a walk. We have been enjoying beautiful weather playing in our yard and cleaning out the extra growth of our vines from the summer. Mike painted our shutters and columns and front door, pictures coming soon.

Greta's broken arm

Greta is a little monkey with a bit of cat in her. She is always jumping around, but usually lands on her feet. Saturday afternoon while playing at the neighbors she saw a shiny rock and jumped down to get pick it up. She landed on a toy and broke both bones in her right arm. It was casted Monday; she has been so brave and hasn't complained of pain very much at all. The picture in the wheelchair was taken at the ER while waiting, can you believe that smile? The staff couldn't believe she wasn't screaming, you can see the crooked arm in one of the pictures. We are so grateful that it didn't break through the skin. She was bored more than anything and tired of waiting. The ER Dr. was able to set it straight while she had some crazy dreams on the meds. She told us later that Dad had like 6 or 8 eyes!
Now we have to spend the next 6 weeks trying to keep her from running or jumping and hurting herself or us with that hard cast.

Halloween part 1

Here is Levi in part of Greta's costume. This is Greta getting a kiss from Levi the frog. The last photo is her as Taylor Swift. Her Aunt Amy helped her make the guitar. I will try to post the video of her singing "You Belong to Me" later since it is saved on the other computer.
