A new toy

Grammie and Grandpa sent Eli a little valentines day money so he could buy something just for him. At the store he decided that he wanted blocks and a glow worm. He made good choices, he LOVES his new glow worm. Thanks Grammie and Grandpa.

smart baby

Eli wants so desperately to walk so today he figured out how he could get around the house. Thanks grammie and grandpa for the Christmas gift that not only plays annoying music but also makes it so my child can really start moving around the house.

So tired

Eli had a very busy baby day. Busy enough that during his afternoon snack he fell asleep.

I especially just love his chubby little fingers with bits of food on them.

Snow Day

Today I woke up to almost a foot of snow. . YUCK! Our town doesn't own a snow plow, school was canceled and when we moved down here from Utah we didn't bring a snow shovel. So today we stayed inside. . .

Watched my oleander bushes die. . .(they don't do well in the cold). . .

. . .watched the icicles drip. . .
. . .ate some good home cooked food. . .

. . .and dreamt of warmer days.

a new appreciation

Today I delivered my first newborn. It was an amazing experience. Holding that brand new baby brought back many memories. It's hard to believe that almost nine months ago a dear woman placed her sweet newborn in our arms. I have a new appreciation for the strength, love and courage she had.
