What?! 18 months?

****Updated: Now I do have pictures of Eli! Woot

I can't believe that our baby boy is 18 months old. It seems like it has all gone by so fast, and yet I can't remember what we did before him!

We celebrated today  Monday by having our family pictures taken by the fabulous Benita Cloward...

We are so excited to see the rest of our proofs! Don't you love his outfit! Oh, you should see the hat that goes with it! It was a good shoot, but it started raining in the middle and I forgot mine and Chris's second set of clothes at the hotel...dang it. But, I did have Eli's second set, and he was adorable! ;) If you are in the Norman area we totally recommend Benita, she is wonderful!

Anyway, back to the man of the day....
Here is to you, my precious little boy who is too big to let him mommy sing to him before nap time anymore. :(

Eli, 18 months:
This month you learned to count to 3 and we are working on your ABC's.
You wear size 4 diapers and are in 12 month clothes and 18 month pj's.
You still take 2 naps about 1 1/2 to 2 hours long- thank you, Jesus!
You are constantly calling daddy on your toy cell phone...we never want him to miss anything while he is at work.
You love to get kisses from your Kaikeyi dog.
Your favorite thing is still trucks and pointing them out and saying "Bye-bye truck".
You hate flies.
You have 15 teeth; 8 on top and 7 on bottom.

Baby boy,
We are so proud of you! You are so amazing. Thank you for being exactly who you are. We can never thank God enough for the precious gift he gave us by giving us you. You are such a joy.
