I just wanted to first congratulate my brother Jonathan on his graduation from Dental School earlier this month.

And also my other brother, Eric, on his wedding this past weekend.

Congratulations!! We are so proud of both of you!!!

~Oh and if you are wondering where I got that adorable tie Eli is wearing...Elizabeth, my EXTREMELY talented sister made it. And is adding it to her Lazybee collection. They are very reasonably priced and indestructible to a very active 9 1/2 month old.

Here are just a few random pictures of Eli

Eli and his cousins Kinsley and Benjamin

Eli giving me my Mother's day flowers...it was adorable

The"cage" the only way we can keep him in one spot...it is not as bad as it looks :)

And so it begins...

Eli is 9 months old today!! He is getting so big. And so grown up. You can tell that he is really starting to understand the world around him. Here are some of his recent accomplishments:
1. Crawling

2. Pulling himself up

3. Clapping

4. Waving

5. Turning off the lights

6. Closing doors

7. Repeating sounds (mainly da-da and num-num, while he eats)

8. Sleeping through the night, again YEAH!!!!

His 9 month stats:

21.10 lbs

28 inches

Like I said Eli is crawling and our lives are never going to be the same. These pictures and video are from last Saturday when he was just starting to figure it out. Now less than a week later he is everywhere!!

Eli loves his cousin Kinsley. When you say her name he looks around for her. This is them playing at my dad's office.

I know I am very behind in posting these but at the beginning of March when we went to out to Utah my very talented brother-in-law, Daniel, took some pictures for us. As you can tell I can't choose which ones I like the best. There is even more than this. Thanks Daniel you did an amazing job!!

With warm weather finally here I am sure we will be doing a lot of this this summer

Typical Eli...tongue out, shirt covered in drool, and "trying" to move
