As far as I can tell, I still have AT LEAST a half dozen DAILY Eli-stalkers out there, and for your efforts, you definitely deserve new pictures!! We had a family dinner for the 4th at JC and Lindsay’s house. It was a lot of fun, and Eli was a doll. As far as his stats go, I’m pretty sure he’s up over 6 pounds now!

Ali’s first opportunity to hold cousin Eli – the shock and terror in her eyes says it all.
Taking a goooood look at him.
Beautiful little boy.

Playing with the coloring. . .
He is SO content when he’s wrapped as tightly as possible in a blanket!! That’s his secret bullet. Anytime he cries, swaddle him!

Now for a few of Ali (I’ll get back to Eli before it’s over, I promise!):
Ali and Pop sharing neck sugars. . .
Really getting those sugars!!
Ali discovered cousin Layla’s doggy door and had fun going in and out of the house without having to find a tall person.

Heading back outside. . .
Pop and Eli sharing a moment out on the deck. . .
Ali desperately wanted to give this leaf to Eli.

Eli also got his first Sunday in Church today! He was very attentive. He had his eyes closed in intense concentration the whole service.

  1. You’re so funny, Rachel! I love reading your blog! I hate that I missed seeing Eli in church today (I worked nursery 2nd hour). At least I got to see him for a second last Wednesday night! He is getting so big!

  2. Very cute pics. :) Glad you gave us an update about Eli. Ali’s face is priceless in that first picture of her holding him. Hopefully she’ll warm up in time and not be so horrified. :)

  3. Cute pictures! I love Ali discovering she can fit through the doggie door. That is priceless. Eli is growing and looks very healthy and happy. Thank you for sharing as always.

  4. Thanks everyone! Thanks especially Jennifer, that is a huge compliment and I really appreciate it!!
