I can’t even believe that this little guy is fixing to be A YEAR OLD…. good thing his mom has been planning his birthday party since Christmas.
Right now, Eli:
-weighs 24 pounds
-loves to point at everything
- knows where his nose is
-says Da-Da for Jeff and I’m pretty sure he uses ‘Hey’ in context (I always heard that boys, especially 2nd born boys, talk a lot later… but I never thought MY 2nd born boy would be that way. Ha Ha… Lily was always advanced, but Eli looks to be the silent observer type like his dad… which is kind of nice. His big sister doesn’t draw breath between words from the moment she wakes up.)
-takes 3 steps by himself consistently… 8 steps is his record so far
-loves to play with whatever his sister has in her hands… especially things with hair to pull
-just like his sister, loves to go feed the horses. He tries to pet them the whole time.
-He hates to ‘drive’ past the neighbor’s great dane who barks LOUDLY at Eli’s little car coming down the dirt road.
-is obsessed with the trash can and toilets… which is awesome for me.
I LOVE every little thing about him.'
…except maybe the last one… that’s really not even cute.
