Becoming a big boy

Hello all! It has been over a month since I’ve posted anything. Sorry about that. Things have been going well. Elijah’s doing great and becoming such a big boy. He’s been (Army) crawling around the house and sitting up on his own. He’s eating all sorts of foods…we’re working on finger foods. He continues to be a good sleeper and his nap schedule is working pretty well so far.

Here are some recent pictures of our little man…

Elijah is so polite. He raises his hand any time he has a question. 🙂

This is Elijah’s personalized sippy cup. He hasn’t quite gotten the hang of how to actually get liquid out of the cup…but he sure can hold it!

Deep in conversation…Elijah is such a good listener.

Showin’ off those teeth. Elijah currently has six teeth coming in at once. In probably two more weeks, he’ll have eight teeth in (four on top & four on bottom). He’s been a real trooper with all those teeth coming in.

Here’s our Mother’s Day photo.  My first Mother’s Day was fantastic. I learned a valuable lesson…if I don’t want to be disappointed, then I need to let Aaron know my expectations. I told him that since it was my first Mother’s Day, I wanted it to be very special. I gave him three options for the celebration of the day, and he blessed me with all three. My advice, ladies tell your husbands what your expectations are. You don’t have to be too specific, but sometimes our guys need a little guidance.
