A much needed Update

Before this year comes to an end I guess I should let everyone know what we have been up to this last month. I looked forward to Troy having almost 3 weeks off of school in vain due this being his busy time at work with UPS. At least he got Christmas day off. Eli is growing and changing every day. In November he started rolling over. He did it a handful of times then took a few weeks off and is now starting to roll from his belly to back again. We are still working on the other way. He also started laughing and making a ton of noises. It is so funny how he tries to "talk" to you. Eli is trying his best to sit up. He is doing really well at it even though there are times he just folds over like a taco. He turned four months old back on Dec. 7th. At his check-up he weighed 16.6 pounds and measured 26 inches long. We decided to go ahead and see how he would do with rice cereal. He loves it. It didn't take him long to get the hang of the whole spoon thing. We used to put him in his high chair to play with his toys while we were in the kitchen but now once he is in there he wants to eat. I better not say this because I will probably jinx myself but Eli is finally on a pretty consistent sleeping/eating schedule. A month or two ago I thought this wasn't possible.

A few pictures to catch everybody up on how he is growing:
