I feel such guilt when I don’t get around to recording important events… especially when I take THOUASANDS of pictures…
but that is RIDICULOUS! I don’t need yet another thing to feel guilt about in motherhood… so I plan to post Minnesota pictures … someday!
the focus is on this little guy…
who turned 4 months old on the 19th. I don’t think I’ve ever written only about him… his sister is a bit of a spotlight hog. But that’s okay with him,
he is happy doing ANYTHING… except riding in his carseat for longer than 30 minutes. Daily, he sits happily and makes sweet noises while I’m dealing with Lily’s latest catastrophe. He gets a pensive look when she is screaming and carrying on about the travesties of her life… such as being told no, not getting to flush the toilet when someone goes without telling her, someone putting the wrong outfit on her little brother. I hope his thoughts in this situation are about how absurd his sister’s fits are and how frustrated they make his mom and dad…. and how when he’s older, he’ll NEVER do things like that.
Look at this face… pure joy. I don’t think fits are going to be a problem…
I thank the Lord every day for this little boy and his sweet, sweet spirit.
He loves to be talked to, loves to stand up, and loves to look at patterns. Unfortunately, his favorite is the pattern on my ‘hooter hider’, which greatly impedes his eating in public.
He loves his big sister… even though she likes to torment him. Just another example of his easy-going personality… although he does have his flinch-y face every time she comes around.
He weighs 18.2 lbs.
He is 26 1/2 inches tall.
He’s in the 97th % for both. Looks like we’re going to have to have another jumbo baby on our hands. As if the chins and leg rolls weren’t already an indication.
He sleeps through the night… every once in awhile. Most nights, he wakes up once around 3 or 4. He takes naps during the day… IN HIS BED… which is amazing and so NOT like his sister.
He currently goes by Mister Guy, Brotherrrr (said Hulk Hogan style), Brother (said Desmond from Lost style), Bwudder (said Lily style), Brother Bean, Baby Noodle, Bright Eyes, E-Lo, and so on.
The evolution of nicknames fascinate me… says the mother of a girl called ‘Be-bo’
… wish I could explain how and when Lily-bug became Be-bo… but I can’t. Who knows what Eli will be called 3 years from know.
Happy 4 month birthday!
WE LOVE YOU Mister Brother Baby Noodle Guy!
