6 Months


 ::A pro at sitting up now::Gabs with "da das" and it's adorable::Roly Poly bug::First tooth on his bottom right::Doesn't refuse a taste of solids::Loves to laugh at his brother::Sleeps in the same room with him too::Wiggly little guy wanting to grab at everything::Around 18 lbs::


Eli has made huge leaps in his development. He has been sitting up for a couple weeks now, and it's great (except when Joey feels the need to knock him over). We have our 6 month appointment tomorrow for measurements and whatnot. Poor Grandma Hobbs gets to be with him after he gets his shots while we go on an anniversary hike (I realize this as I'm typing, sorry!). He got his first little snaggle tooth, 3 months earlier than Joey!

He's doing well keeping a schedule with his sleep as long as we are home. The bassinet was getting tiny for him so we took a risk and put him in the crib, which is in the same room as Joey. It hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. Joey is out like a light when Eli wakes up crying (so is Sam).

Eli is our wiggle butt and grabs at anything in his reach. But he's so happy. A lot of people comment on his happy countenance, and it's a blessing to have him. I couldn't have asked for a better second child at the moment.

We've been spending our days at the park:

First time sitting up for the camera.
Loving the swing.
Snuck a PB&J sandwich in while my parents
were distracted and didn't regret it!
Prunes make me blow out of my pants!
Found my toesies.
Passed out while playing 
 These past 6 months have been a party! We love you Elijah!

Oh what cute pics of Eli! He's such a smiley boy. You could have left out that poopy photo though--haha! Yuck. I love seeing your boys through your eyes and watching them grow from month to month--it's pretty amazing. Eli especially is growing and changing fast! We love him and Joey so much :-).
