It seems like every time I would try and get Eli on camera doing anything whether it was laughing, "talking", or playing peek-a-boo he would stop once he saw the camera. I finally got him laughing today. Don't you just love how a baby's laugh can always make you smile.

Since Eli has become a pro at sitting up he has experienced quite a few firsts over the last few months:

The beginning of December Eli went in his stroller without his carrier for the first time

Sitting in a highchair at restaurants

(Sorry its kind of blurry)

Making grocery shopping a ton easier, sitting by himself in the buggy

This is probably Eli's favorite sitting up accomplishment...swinging. You can't really tell in the picture but he loved it!

A month FULL of Birthdays!

Today is my wonderful, good-lookin', smart, considerate, loving, charming, romantic, did I say handsome husband, Troy's, birthday. I am not usually one to go on and get all lovey dovey especially on a blog but I did want to say that I don't know how I got so lucky to have him in my life. It is funny how much one person can become apart of who you are. Happy Birthday deserve the world and I promise I will try everyday of my life to give it to you.
Happy Birthday Elizabeth, whose Birthday is also today. Thanks for ALL that you are have done for me especially since Eli has been born. You will never know how much it means to me to have you live next door. I am so grateful to have you as a sister and a friend.

Happy Birthday Hannah! (Jan 17th) You know you have been like a sister to me. It amazes me how much you always know exactly what to do/say to make someone feel like they are the only one in the world that matters. We have been through a lot over the years and all of it is worth it to be where we are today!

I can't mention January birthdays without wishing my other two sisters Lindsey and Victoria a Happy Birthday as well! I love you girls a ton and ya'll are such examples to me. It is also my two nieces Kayla and Olivia's birthdays this month...Happy Birthday!!

Sorry this picture is so small I tried and tried to get it bigger but it's getting late I am getting tired so this will just have to do
