Eli at 18 Months

Oh boy. I adore life with this kid (most times). He has such a happy and smiley personality and just became a year and a half! I'll make a list to paint a picture of this boy at this age.

  • Busy little guy, loves taking things out and putting them back, then taking them, out then scattering them for me to find and pick up.
  • Our fish! He adores going to the pool and having to keep us at arms distance at all times because of how crazy he is.
  • Says some words and is copying a lot more. Some of his words include: Mama, Dada, JoJo, shoes, binky (in his own way), war (water), bah (bath), Hi and Bye, and plgh (please). 
  • He loves loves making animal sounds!
  • Also loves cars and is his go-to toy at all times.
  • Loves to read books and gets excited when I mention reading them.
  • Starting to get aggressive (playfully) and is leaving marks! Usually it's just with us and hasn't really attacked any other kid.
  • Still loves mama's milk and trying to figure out the best way to wean him while maintaining my sanity.
  • Becoming a wanderer and doesn't come back unless is caught and dragged back.
  • Favorite foods: ? Only think I know for sure is fruit snacks. Everything else is hit and miss!
Love you Elijah!!

Oh, our sweet boy Eli, he has grown into his own person and is so confident and happy. We miss his energy at our house! I hope and pray that he and Joey will always be protected from harm or injury and will thrive wherever you go. They are a sweet, adorable pair, and they are blessed to have you and Sam as their parents. We love you and miss you all!
