A new year: 2011

Friday, December 31, 2010

I don't usually make new year's resolutions, but for 2011 I want to get back to blogging. I want to write about all of the great things that are going on in our lives. Eli is growing up so fast, I'm getting closer to obtaining a new degree and our lives are moving in fast forward. I don't want to forget any of the wonderful things that are happening. If no one else reads my words that's ok, but maybe someday Eli will appreciate my antics.

Happy New Year Everyone may 2011 be the best year yet!!

9 months...

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Wow, it's been a while since I posted here, but thought some of you might still check in and like to know what's up this the Hendersons.

I took Eli to his 9 month check up today and he got a great report. Dr. Doud said he is a very healthy boy. He weighted in at 24.7 pounds (92 percentile) and is 29.6 inches tall (83 percentile)!! That makes him in the 95 percentile overall. Dr. Doud said that he is maintaining his weight and percentages. And that he's not fat, just solid!! We didn't get any shots today -- thank goodness!

Eli is getting so big and doing so many new things. He is crawling everywhere and really fast. He is pulling up on anything (even if it's not safe) and he's very brave and lets go sometimes to see if he can stand or walk. And I must say that he's gotten pretty graceful with his falls -- is that a good thing?!?! He'll eat anything that you put in his mouth. And loves to have a bite of anything Mommy or Daddy is eating. He has started to talk; he can say mama, dada, popa, bye bye and is trying hard to say dog. I just can't believe how big he's getting. And I love that he is excited to see me at the end of the day when I come to pick him up -- that's the highlight of my days!!
Well, here are a few pictures of the little rascal...

Eli is getting so big and doing so many new things. I can't believe how he is growing. Here are a few pictures:
This isn't going to be good soon. He can only scoot backwards for now, but soon he'll figure out crawling and poor Sassy doesn't stand a chance.
Little Devil?!?!

Sunday afternoon nap...

February 12th snow storm. He didn't really know what was going on.

Sooooo cute. Notice the bib -- it says it all!!

Growing so fast...

Friday, January 8, 2010

I can't believe that Eli is 5 1/2 months old. He is getting so big and doing so many new things. He weighs between 20 and 21 pounds and is about 27 inches long. He is sitting up like a big boy -- he is still a little unsteady, but does very well balancing himself. He is reaching for the toy(s) that he wants to play with and he can transfer them from one hand to another. He is eating baby food twice a day and we've cut back on the number of bottles that he gets. He slept through the night 4 nights this week. Wow, I can't believe it. I bought a convertible car seat last week because he is almost too long for his infant seat. He will hold his arms to up or out when he wants to be held/picked up. He loves Sassy (our dog), he thinks she is SOOOO funny. He LOVES my Mom and Dad and just lights up when they come over. He just realized that if he whines or cries we will react and either talk to him or pick him up!

Here are a few pictures of him:

This picture doesn't even begin to show how cute he was in this plaid shirt and blue jean overalls.

This was his first attempt at baby food... Not too bad. He loved it -- it was Sweet Potatoes

This was taken on Christmas Eve!! He was so good that day and had such a great time opening presents!!

Jay's sister, April, took this picture on Saturday 12/26 and our family Christmas gathering. He was also, very good that day too.

April took this one too. Aren't they sweet?!?!?!?!

This is our big boy sitting on the couch by himself...
