Levi Thella Shank

Levi Thella arrived Tuesday, May 11 at 2:27am. He weighed 8pounds, 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. I was having contractions all afternoon but deceided to go to bed around 10:30pm because they didn't seem to be getting stronger or closer together. By 11 pm i was sure we needed to go to the hospital--after Langley's quick delivery--I was not taking any chances!!! So we arrived at the hospital about 11:30 or so after our sweet friend, Emily, arrived to stay with Payton and Langley. After a long hour and a half of trying to draw blood and get an IV I got an epidural and then Levi was quickly born. Steve and I were so thankful for a healthy baby boy who was just pecfect in our eyes!! Levi was welcomed home by his big sister's Payton and Langley with balloons and a sign!

We went camping with 2 other sweet families, Josh, Rachel, Kaylee and Caleb and Chris, Kristie, Brave, Davey and Alton the weekend before Easter. It was our first camping experience for our family. We had 7 kids under the age of 6 and 2 pregnant mommies. We had some rain our first morning but other than that everything went pretty smoothly. The kids played at the playground, around the campsite and down by the water. Payton loved getting to play with friends and Langley loved being outdoors and snacking 24/7!!!
