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...
