Happy HALF birthday to you…

precious E-why

you’re almost crawling.  You’ve been doing the rocking move for over 3 weeks now.

you’re finally sitting up on your own.

you LOVE food… especially anything with SWEET in the name like sweet potatoes and corn and sweet corn and rice.

you’re almost grown out of your 9 month clothes.

you love to be bounced, zoomed, flown around the room.

you’re a ‘getter’… if anything is in your reach… you WILL get it.

you’ll smile at anyone who talks to you… and even let them hold you.

you have your mommy’s features… but not coloring…. even have your mommy’s signature fuzzy baby orangutan hair (see last photo).  Nana said looking at your face is like de ja vu sometimes.

you LOVE your sister, but probably DAD most of all.

your  main nickname right now is Brother Beankins…  that Lily came up with all on her own to fit into the ‘Jenny Jenkins’ song

you drool ALL THE TIME (see photo 2)!

you are the sweetest boy in the whole wide world!

Lily selected funfetti cupcakes and rainbow chip icing and enjoyed them with friends on your behalf…. while you ate baby squash.

That was so funny about the squash!

I love little E-why so much. That smile he gives you when you talk to him or even just look at him just melts your heart. I love that he is such a happy little guy. And, although I want Ethan to stay with him developmentally, I am not ready for crawling!! Luke has too many tiny toys.

Our precious little Eli is the most darling little boy!!! What a wonderful personality he has...so much like his dad's. When Jeff was little my dad often commented on how he was "ALWAYS" smiling.

Papa and I can hardly wait to get to love both of our babies in just 9 days!!!!!

Eli is so cute! He is such a happy little guy. He is a blessing to us all. I can't believe the boys are already 6 months old. Love, Nana

I love my Gracie Bug like crazy, but there sure is something special about Mommys and their boys! Eli is just the cutest little guy. I miss him so much!
