Levi

If any of you have been missing me here’s what I’ve been up to.

Levi was born October 31, 2010 at 2:04 PM and weighed 8 pounds, 4 ounces. He was 19 inches long.

We’re all happy and healthy.

    That little guy is a handsome one. (And I love your Twitpic that showed his hands. His hands are the best.)

    The Iz, she is a hard act to follow, but Levi will be up to it.

    Sheila, wait until you see his freakin’ feet.

  3. Michael Smith on November 8th, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Also, I’m not sure he’s going to pull off the sunglasses the same way the Iz can.

  4. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 6:45 pm

    Well, he will develop his own style, I’m sure!

    Happy for all of you.

    No one could blame you for being preoccupied.

    what a handsome young man!

    I like babies. This is a fine example of one.

  8. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 6:55 pm

    A most excellent baby.

  9. Daryl Scroggins on November 8th, 2010 at 7:05 pm

    Nice sheets. Just right for such a beautiful boy. I hope you all get some rest soon!

    Oh god, it’s actually cute! I’m not kidding! Some babies look like potatoes, but that baby is cute. Between the Iz and Mr. Levi, you’re gonna have your hands full for quite a while.

    Best to you and Alicia!

    ….and I win the cookies :-)

    He is so stinkin’ cute! I can’t wait until Sunday!

  12. Rick Neece on November 8th, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    Get ready, Michael. You’re going to have to buy big shoes and big gloves. Only happiness, my wish for you all!

    I cut my hair like that today. If I had the right blanket (and a onesy) I’d take a picture.

  14. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Deron. Onesie and a blankie. Ode to his subconscious. Want.

  15. Amanda Mae Meyncke on November 8th, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    They sell onesies for adults at Target.

    I’m a facilitator.

  16. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Deron in jammies with feet.

  17. Deron Bauman on November 8th, 2010 at 8:25 pm

    Whaaaaaaa.

  18. Michael Smith on November 8th, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    Thanks, all!

    Deron’s pulling your legs. He’s wearing a onesie now. It’s all he owns; onesies and a pair of camo cargo shorts.

  19. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    A couple of sets of camo onesies.

  20. Deron Bauman on November 8th, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    I’ve got some plaid shorts too.

  21. Amanda Mae Meyncke on November 8th, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Deron just tears holes in a new garbage bag every day. It’s better because that way everyone can hear him coming, and every day you get a new outfit!

  22. Deron Bauman on November 8th, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Crinkle, crinkle, crinkle.

  23. Carole Corlew on November 8th, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    He is a sugar boy baby.

  24. Michael Smith on November 8th, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Deron?

  25. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 9:37 pm

    Find him an alternate name, Carole, like you done with Mr. Boudreaux!

  26. Sheila Ryan on November 8th, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    Not that Levi isn’t right for the boy. But we all need an escape hatch identity.

  27. Deron Bauman on November 8th, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Yes, Michael. Carole was talking about me.

  28. Molly on November 8th, 2010 at 10:31 pm

    Halloween baby!

  29. Coop on November 8th, 2010 at 10:46 pm

    Rockin’!

  30. Phil Bebbington on November 9th, 2010 at 4:13 am

    Congratulations to all, he is very beautiful. Am I the only one that wants to smell him, if that is permitted? Baby skin is delicious.

    Not to eat, obviously!

  31. Cindy Scroggins on November 9th, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Wow. Baby Levi is wise. I can see it in his face. If there is such a thing as an old soul, Levi has one. Beautiful.

    Phil, I love to smell babies. That’s the first thing I do around one. Babies smell even better than puppies.

  32. Carole Corlew on November 9th, 2010 at 9:59 am

    Deron is a sugar boy too, but I was talking about the baby Levi this time. I am onworking a temporary alternate name, Shelia. I really need to see someone in 3D for that. But he’s so little a sort of “real” name might come to me anyway. It’s an essence thing.

    I knew a guy named Dan back when, from Roanoke. He entered the University of Virginia before women were accepted there, in the days when men attended class in blue blazers and ties. When I met him he had a cigarette in one hand, a whiskey in the other and was partying down. With a big smile, he announced, “I am a buddhist.”

    He was a great guy, fun to be around. I knew he was no “Dan,” but “Lester,” which is a Scottish and Irish surname of Gaelic origin, a variant of Lister. He thought the name and the concept were funny. But before long, he was calling himself Lester.

    Michael, we were wrong.

  34. Michael Smith on November 9th, 2010 at 10:23 am

    I hate being wrong.

  35. Carole Corlew on November 9th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    Deron. Trying to crowd out a baby. Poor Levi. Although he might be like my son. As soon as he could talk when anyone looked at him even for a second he said, “Why are you staring at me.”

  36. Deron Bauman on November 9th, 2010 at 10:31 am

    Michael started it.

  37. Andrea Kremer on November 9th, 2010 at 10:35 am

    NEW PERSON! NEW PERSON! SUPER CUTE! man they’re awesome when they’re new. congrats, mr. smith.

  38. Carole Corlew on November 9th, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Did not.

  39. Deron Bauman on November 9th, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Mom!

  40. Carole Corlew on November 9th, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Dang, you are good, Deron.
