The Life of Eli: Month 8


This past month flew by as we prepped for Halloween, ventured uptown to celebrate Grammy J being a breast cancer survivor, and got back to sleeping through the night (hallelujah!!!).

Highlights from this month include:


Meeting Sir Purr for the first time and hanging out with Grammy J at her breast cancer survivor bash.




Oh you know, just being tired from daycare.


But he's all good once he gets that cat nap from the car ride home.


First time eating yogurt. He LOVES it!


Wearing Daddy's hat.



Celebrating Mackenzie's 3rd birthday!




Go Panthers! Keep pounding!


Not so sure about this guys.


Sun's out. Tongue's out.

Cheese.


Pumpkin patch!


Pumpkin jammies!


Lion. Roar!


Life father. Like son.


Visiting with Uncle Bill.


Pumpkin butt!


Mommy and me time.

The Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

This October we headed to Wise Acres Organic Farm for Elijah's first visit to the pumpkin patch. Our stay was short but it was long enough for me to get my obligatory photos sitting amongst the pumpkins. It's crazy to think that next year we'll be chasing around a toddler who will enjoy the hayrides, animals, and everything else the farm has to offer. Happy Fall!

The Life of Eli: Month 7


This past month hasn't been the easiest. I questioned myself more than ever as Elijah changed his eating habits daily with the introduction to pureed solids. Between that and his first cold, we were all over the place. Sleep didn't come easy and this momma was a hot mess for the month of September.

Even though we went through a rough couple of weeks, Elijah continued to give the best hugs, wrapping his arms around our necks, holding on tight as if he would never let go. It's the best feeling in the world, I tell ya. It made up for the whole not sleeping at night thing.

Highlights this month included:

Bath time with Dad is always a win.


The first of many Matthew's Alive!




Bath time snuggles with mom.


A few favorites from our photo shoot with Sunny.






Riding on the bye bye buggy.


Morning snuggles.


First App State game of the season!


Refusing to nap at daycare means catching a cat nap on the Bye Bye Buggy.


Looking all old (and stylish) at the end of the month.


Talking to my buddy Hadley at daycare.


Cheering my cousin, Keegan, on at his first soccer game!



After work shenanigans.



See you guys at 8 months! It will be here before we know it.
