Levi Calvin!!

Our hearts are pretty much exploding with joy right now!
Little Levi was born Wednesday, September 5th at 10:24 am via a scheduled c-section. The week before his scheduled arrival we had a few false alarms. Low amniotic fluid levels, decreased movement, some scary stuff. BUT, he arrived healthy as can be, Praise the Lord, even with the cord wrapped around his neck. We are just thanking God for His protection and timing with our little guy.
Levi weighed in at 7 lbs 11 oz and is 20" long. His feet are about the longest sweetest little newborn feet I've ever seen, with big hands to match! He has dark dark hair, pretty much long black hair. The snuggliest personality and is an excellent eater. I have a feeling he will not be in for the weight checks big sister had at his age.
Speaking of big sister, miss Georgiana Lee is LOVING her new role! We've experienced very little "hey why are you paying attention to him and not me" moments, and overall she has just wanted to be a little mommy to who she calls her "real dolly." A favorite quote already was when she walked into the hospital room to visit for the second time, baby Levi was crying and Georgiana said "Don't worry baby Levi, big sister is here!"
She was also a little rockstar with being away from mommy and daddy for 2 nights (we got to come home a night early!!). She had never spent the night away from us, and honestly that was probably my biggest concern. But, she was a brave little girl and had an absolute blast staying at my Aunt Michelle and Uncle Roger's house, or "Rogggg" as Georgie now refers to him.
Anyway, I just wanted to share at least this pic, you can imagine how many paparazzi daddy Kelly has taken, so I have many more cutie patooties to look through and hopefully post.
Thank you to all those who prayed for us and the arrival of our sweet boy!!!

Welcome baby Levi!! He's so very handsome. I love it when little babes have so much hair. :) I will be praying for you as you rest, recover and enjoy loving your new little boy. And praying that Georgie will thoroughly enjoy the extra daddy time while you rest!

So so SO happy for you guys! He is just beautiful! Looks just like his big sister (but in a more manly way of course!). Can't wait to see more pictures. Love to you all!
