Sweet Eli {4 Years Old}

This past weekend has been a whirlwind of activity, the most important being the celebration of our sweet Eli's 4th birthday!  What a precious addition he is to our family.  He brings us so much joy, love and energy!  He is such a lovey boy and his favorite things to do are give us hugs and kisses...all day long...such a sweetie!  He especially enjoys loving on his baby sister and takes any chance he can to plant a big kiss on her or give her a squeeze.  He and Johnathan are such good little buddies, and my heart is often full to the point of exploding when I see the bond of love between them.  Our lives just wouldn't be as full without our precious boy, and we are forever grateful to the Lord for sparing his precious life on his birth day 4 years ago!  Thank you Jesus for our sweet Eli.

We love you so much, sweet boy!

Keepin' Up with Sister

It's hard to believe that our little angel is almost 8 months old.  Time does fly.  I wanted to record (mostly for my own purposes) Sister's 6/7month stats before it's time to jot down what she's up to at 8/9 months.

When we took her to her 6 month check up (a month late, lol!) she was 15.5 pounds, almost 26 inches tall and according to her doc she has a lollipop head, haha!.....her head measured in the 90th percentile, but I think it looks much smaller than that, the boys' seemed so much bigger and they measured about the same.  Anyways, she's growing well and is a lovely, healthy little girl.

She enjoys feeding herself these days and especially likes bits of pancake, Gerber crunchies and puffs, bits of banana, strawberry and meat sticks.  She will occasionally still eat her spoon-fed veggies, but mostly likes to do things on her own.  Uh oh, independent already!  ;-)

Her favorite word to say is Da-da.....which she loves to repeat over and over.  It is so cute.....and you can imagine that her Daddy loves this!  She adores her big brothers and gives them the biggest smiles and laughs.

She is a delight to be around, and we all just love our Baby Sister!
