Oh Baby, Oh Baby!

For those of you who can't "enjoy" my expanding baby bump, we have once again started to keep track of my growth!  Here I am at month 3, 4 and 5!  For those of you who haven't heard, we tried something new this time around and found out we are having another BOY!  We are so excited for Eli to have a brother so close in age.  We are keeping the name secret until his birth, so don't bother asking because we won't tell!

Snapshots of our 11 month old

Playing in the bath tub...with a starfish-shaped squirt toy.  He's such a ham!
 Enjoying a chocolate-chip cookie with Grandma Kathy
 Spending time with Uncle Pete.  Although he was only home for a short time, we tried to soak up as much Uncle Pete time as possible! 

 My first taste of ketchup...does it look like I enjoyed it?

"Just Me and My Dad"

I've always loved Mercer Mayer books, and as I snapped some of these photos I could help but think of the book "Just Me and My Dad".  I know I've said it before, but Eli loves his daddy!  He lights up every time he sees him. 
Here is Eli trying to see just what daddy is up to..."if only I was a little taller"
 Eli, daddy and his baby doll. 

Every father's dream...walking around Bass Pro with his son.  Eli loves to ride in the cart like this & today was no exception.  Here they are making a list for Santa!
 Licking the bowl and spoon.  I don't know who enjoyed this treat more.

Eli's First Trip to the Park

I know I'm a slacker, but trips to the park are truly a "trip" because we live out of town.  Eli loves to swing though, so today I took him to the park while we were in town.  Of course he LOVED the swing and giggled going down the slide with mommy!  Here he is enjoying this beautiful fall day!

Recent Moments

Anthony's youngest brother Nick celebrated his birthday this weekend too!  Happy 12th Birthday Uncle Nick! 

Of course Eli and Grandpa celebrated by sharing some cake and ice cream.
Eli's new trick...starting on Halloween, Eli began smiling while wrinkling his nose and squinting his eyes.  Daddy says he looks like a opposum know what!  It's so darn cute!

Halloween 2010

We had so much fun with Eli's first Halloween!  After his 3 hour nap (surprise!) we took him out trick or treating to a few family members.  By the time we got back home he was ready for another nap (which worked out great bc mom and dad could carve some pumpkins!)  After he woke up, Eli's grandparents and a few friends came over to visit and eat.  We had fun watching the trick or treaters stop by too!  This annual event is definitely something to look forward to!
The only picture I have with Eli's hood up.  He wore his costume all afternoon without a complaint--even took a nap in it--but he wasn't fond of the hood/lion's mane.  That's okay...he is just a baby after all!

"Much better!  Now...what exactly are we doing?"

At Eli's Great-Grandparent's house.  I love this picture with his cute little tail!

Aunt Debbie shared some M&M's with Eli.  His first for the day, but not his last!  Yum!

I think Anthony did an AWESOME job this year!
