Seven Months

Eli is continuing to grow and change!  He is now sitting up solidly, eating all kinds of food (yogurt is his favorite), working on two teeth, blowing raspberries, rocking on all fours, and laughs at his big brother.  He also survived his first sickness, hand foot mouth, which both boys had the first week of school.  Thankfully, our sweet baby didn't fuss too badly considering he had ulcers inside his mouth!

Eli's Baptism

Eli sure charmed the crowd at church as he was baptized on August 14th.  Even though it was right during his nap time, Eli was all smiles as he was shown off to the congregation.  We were so blessed to have family and friends celebrate with us on this special day for our extra special little boy!

Half a Year

Our little boy is six months! I can't believe how fast the months are flying by.  Eli loves to eat food, swim in the pool, laugh at Barrett and Bentley, and is super close to sitting up.  He got another glowing report from the doctor at his check up.  We can't get enough of our smiling, happy baby boy!

Eli's stats:
Weight:15 lbs. 2 oz. (12th percentile)
Height: 25.8 in. (16th percentile)
Head: 43 cm (39th percentile)

July Fun

Barrett and Eli had such a fun month going to see dinosaurs with Reid, playing with friends, visiting Austin, Barrett seeing this first movie in the theater, and most of all a DIAPER FREE kid!!!!  After a full week of staying at home, Barrett is officially potty trained!

4th of July

We celebrated the Fourth by going to Grandpa and JoJo's for a day of swimming and backyard fun.  Barrett had so much fun playing with his cousins, and Eli enjoyed relaxing in the pool!

Five Months

Eli is continuing to grow and change.  The biggest change he has made this month is he is now sleeping in his crib!  After a frustrating month of 45 minute naps and waking up three times a night, the pediatrician suggested we move him to the crib and do a little crying out.  I am pleased to say he is now napping 2 hours at a time and only waking up once a night. Hallelujah!!

Eli is also beginning to interact with Barrett, eating solid foods, and rolling all over the place!

Big boy in his crib!
