Dec. 2002...just over one month
Levi's visit to new cousin, Piper - 2004
I will definitely have to dig out some pix of Levi...I have scrapbooked a lot of his pix so it may be difficult.
Five years ago right now, I was hating life...Levi was born very quickly at 1:00 p.m. October 31, 2002. He weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces and was my smallest baby...
The poor kid struggled from the get go...the midwife discovered a "hairy tuft" at the base of his spine, which can indicate spina bifida...that "diagnoses" can wreak havoc on a newly birthed mother..so we got him checked out asap to make sure it was closed. Yes, and amen, it was! Then he became catatonic when his pediatrician administered the numbing agent for his cirumcision 8 days later...so he feared he may have a "heart issue"...come to find out our poor little guy simply had a baaaaaaaad reaction to the pain relief and who wouldn't down there? But ya know what? through all of his little hardships, Levi has chugged along and is an amazing little guy to have around.
We are glad to have you in our family, Levi Taylor! You are one spunky, incredible, tender hearted little dude! Happy Birthday Young man!
