Splish Splash!

Getting Eli ready for a bath.

Getting undressed is still his favorite part of bath time.
His laugh is so cute!!

Going Out With My Baby

Getting ready to go to the movies for the first time.
Eli slept through most of the movie. During the loud
parts he kicked a lot, but he didn't cry at all. After
the movie, he got more than a few comments about
how cute he is and what a good movie-goer he is.

Eli still thinks it's funny when we tug on his shirt sleeve.

Emily's family knows she detests peas, so they find
every opportunity they can to tease her about it.
Auntie Kirsten thought this outfit was a funny
Christmas present. Emily thinks that it's appropriate
that Eli is sticking his tongue out. :)

Hangin' out with friends.

Eli sure has a cute laugh.

More Play, Less Sleep

Eli used to just flail his arms randomly (often
hitting himself in the face). Apparently he can
control them well enough now to reach up and
play with dangling toys.

Feeling a soft blanket on his face helps him fall asleep.

Eli with a swim diaper on, ready to go swimming in
the pool at the rec center. He acted pretty indifferent
to being in the water, and eventually just fell asleep.

Playing peek-a-boo after a bath.

Innocent Looks and Laughs

"Thank heaven for little boys." (That's what his outfit says.)

Look at that innocent face!

Eli thinks it's funny when we tug on his shirt to pull it off.
I wonder why babies think certain mundane things are
funny, and why they give blank stares for things I think
they should think are funny...

Notice the drool bridging his lip and my shirt. :)
This was shortly after Eli spit up on my shirt
(we got a graphic picture right when it happened,
but it turned out too blurry), so Emily wants to
make me some shirts that say "Dad's Burp Rag"
and "Real men have urp on their shirts."
