Taking a much needed nap for the both of us
After getting his shots at his 2 month check-up.
I think this is by far my favorite way to spend any afternoon
So these past few months Eli has had a lot of first and will have many more in the months to come. At the end of October Eli had his first trip on an airplane to Arizona. Troy's Grandma McGuire passed away and we were very grateful that we were given the opportunity to attend the funeral and visit with family.
In Arizona Eli was able to meet his cousin Hunter (Troy's sister, Stacie's little boy) It was so much fun seeing them together
These are a few pictures from Arizona with Troy's family.
For Halloween we were still in Arizona but we made sure that Eli didn't miss out on getting dressed up for his first Halloween and taking a few pictures when we got back.
I just like this picture of him smiling
I like this one too:)
I love seeing how much he has grown. These pictures were taken at 2 days, 1 month, 2 months, and three months.

Wow...7 weeks...it is hard to believe that Eli is 7 weeks old. It's hard to remember what life was like before Eli. He is such a blessing in our life. Yes Troy and I haven't sleep more than 3 consecutive hours of sleep at night. And I feel that my days are filled with nursing and changing diapers and even more nursing. And then when I do get out and go somewhere I usually have to make the run for the car to yes you guessed it feed the little guy. But it is all worth it and more to have a healthy happy and growing baby boy(at his month check-up he weighed 8.12 lbs). Eli is starting to show his personality. It is getting fun that he is starting to recogonize the world around him. It is funny how you'll have one day where he will sleep when I am ready for him to sleep so I can get things done and I can see that slight glimpse of hope that an actual routine is in the future and then the next day everytime I try and lay him down he cries. I guess I have to keep on living for those "good days"
Here are a few pictures of Eli during the past 7 weeks of his life:
Some of Eli's hospital visitors
Eli and his grandaddy at just 1 day old
Eli's cousin Kinsley just loves being around Eli. She will always run up to him saying "I-lie, I-lie" and will always try and share whatever she has with him
Eli and Grandpa McGuireEli's Blessing
Eli LOVES his rainforest gym, especially the tucan bird
(He loves his Georgia Snuggly made by lazy bee)
