favorite drawer

This is Eli's favorite drawer, the handle on the outside has always been irresistible, and he accidentally got it opened one day and discovered a whole new world of treasures hidden inside! Its so easily accessible and provides lots of entertainment and occupies his busy mind/body, so this will be Eli's special drawer that mamma doesn't make off limits.

Rub a dub dub

Right now I am letting Eli's natural body oil be his moisturizer, so I only bathe him as necessary.
Most of the time he loves the water, some times he hates it.
He outgrew his baby bathtub already, I can't believe it. I grounded him for that, of course!

First Time Swinging at the Park

We were so happy to have a beautiful day last Saturday. We worked on fixing up our house in Camas, painting the garage and doing a little yard work. We are hoping to sell it very soon! Elias is such a huge help, he helps by supervising happily from his car seat. He is sooo sweet (even though he is on a sleeping stike during the nights) After we finished working, we took him to swing in the park.

traveling with a baby

I always wonder what it will be like when we travel overseas with Elias. I guess my main concern is riding in cars without a carseat for him.
Right before Elias was born we went to work with the Micah Project for a week. We made a series of a day in the life of Micah videos for them...
I just found this cool newer video today

Yep- I finally did it, Got Elias' 6 month pictures (at 7.5 months) but better late than never! Here are a few highlights... it didn't help that Elias tumbled off the platform in the middle of the photo shoot ;( (Horrible mom!)

Too Soon!

I stick Eli in his crib while I shower. When I got out this morning, I found him pulled up onto his knees reading my map (time to take it down!) I thought to myself.. soon he will be pulling himself up to his feet as well!

I left the room to and came back one minute later to this:

"I'm so proud of myself mommy"
