Best of Friends

Eli has taken an interest in my expanding belly.  He pushes my shirt up and pokes my belly button while he giggles.  Recently he started hugging and kissing the baby too.  We are all getting so excited to welcome Eli's little brother to the family in April.


Eli has become increasingly mischievous with age and I know it will only get worse!
Here he is squeezing to get something out of the corner.
 Sitting in a cake pan...
 Emptying my cabinets and then making raspberries with his mouth..
 This is what my floor looks like EVERY day!  It takes him 5 minutes to disperse the toys just how he likes them.  I pick them up ONLY after he goes to bed, otherwise my efforts are futile.  Autumn enjoys them spread out too.  As she learns to crawl, new toys are always accessible!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!

The first time Eli has gotten to play in the snow.  He wasn't that fond of it, but giggled when Mommy and Daddy threw the snow at him.

Family Pictures

Our first family Christmas picture!

While we were there, we took Eli's 1st Birthday pictures as well.  I'm pretty pleased with our handsome little man!

Eli's 1st Haircut

On December 1st, the day after Eli turned 1, I took Eli to get his first haircut!  Anthony's cousin Denise did a great job!  Eli did surprisingly well, it's amazing what a little sucker can do! Here is his transformation!

Anthony, Eli and I went down to the Edward Jones Dome last Saturday to cheer on the Warrenton Warriors as they competed in the state championship game!  I'm convinced 1/2 of Warrenton made it to the game--it was such a fun time! Eli was SO good too!  He sat on Anthony's lap most of the game and played with people around us, ate goldfish crackers and watched some football.  Here he is making faces at the people behind us....
 Although we took 2nd, we are all SO proud of our home team!  Here they are strategizing.
