Levi's First Day

Here are a couple picts from the first 24 hours. We were still figuring out a good bandage/hat combo, so bear with us here... these aren't the cutest pictures. I had been in the hospital pumped full to the brim with drugs for quite some time now, and just had surgery. Larson had been sleeping (sort-of) on a couch and, well, looks pretty good- darn him. Enjoy!

This is how Larson slept:

Jared drove over from Seattle in really bad weather, really late at night, but we were awake (of course) and he came to meet Levi at 3 AM or so. Thanks Jared!

The Family all visited in the morning and each brother got to spend some alone time with us and baby Levi.

Mom = Tired; Levi = Adorable

Levi beat the odds as he cruised past his 1 day birthday!
(Posed by the clock to show the time being 24 hours from when he was born!)

Levi is stunning. In every way. I had Isaac (my 4th child also), he lived 70 minutes on April 8th. Found your blog via facebook. How are you hanging in there??

Wow...He is absolutely beautiful! I had known about Levi's birth through the ABFA group and had been in prayer for you & your family. HOw amazing that he lived for 16 days! Wow. What a blessing from above. My Noah lived an amazing 19 hours and they were the best 19 hours of my life. I miss my baby boy more than words can possibly express.

I am glad to see you started a blog for your baby boy and look forward to getting to know you as you chronicle your journey.

BTW, your boys are just adorable! So very cute!
