11 Months

Last week Eli turned 11 months old.
I can't believe that I am planning his one year birthday party; I am in total denial that my baby boy isn't really a "baby".
I guess that he will always be my baby though...after all, I still call my 5 and 12 year old dogs puppies.

What are you up to these days, Eli?
Well, what are you not up to? You are walking everywhere! You keep me on my toes all day long.

You love to be in the kitchen "helping" mommy cook.

Your favorite time of day is when daddy comes home for lunch. Mommy's favorite time of day is your long morning nap before daddy comes home for lunch. (See pictures below for after-nap-hair fun.)

Shortly after this picture was taken you got your first haircut!

You and mommy play all day is your "train" that you like to ride around the house in.

You have a total of 6 teeth and are working on another one.
You love to dance to your Santa doll.
You have conquered the sippy cup! YAY!
You have added toast and Cheerios to your diet.
You have said "Hi", "Bye-bye", "Mama", "Dada", "Woof", and "Memamaw".

Baby Eli,

We are so proud of you. You bring so much joy into our lives. Thank you for making us smile everyday. You are such a good baby...I hope that your other brothers and sisters are just like you!
