Our joy comes with the morning...

Happy two month birthday, Eli!

We can't believe that our baby boy has been with us for two whole months already!
He has really started smiling and cooing at us...it makes us completely forget about those late night feedings and dirty diapers. What a joy...

Here is a little video from our morning ritual. Most days, daddy wakes up and leaves for class by 7:00a.m. Usually mommy is feeding or has just finished the first feeding of the day. When daddy leaves, we put the Mr. on daddy's pillow- He loves to lay on it. Mommy tries to get a few things done around the house and get ready for work while the little guy sleeps a little while longer.

Around 8:30, I go into the bedroom to put him in his car seat to go pick up Chris from class... this is what I see every morning...



There are no words to describe the warmth and love felt by the smile of your child. Just knowing that he can recognize us and is happy means everything.

Oh. My. Goodness. He is THE cutest thing! I sat here grinning at the computer trying to make him smile back at me! I love all his little newborn noises and jerky movements. I'm thinking I MUST hold him. When will you be back in town!? Love and miss you guys!
