11 months

Is that crickets I hear out there?

I know, I know. It's been awhile since I posted. But, I'm horrible at taking pictures regularly and my daily life really is too boring for an every day (or even an every week) blog post. I'll try to do better Mom, Granny, MIL, FIL, Aunt Cathy, and the handful of other readers I may still have out there :).

I took this video a couple of weeks ago of Eli laughing at J.C. "fake boxing" behind the couch. He really thought it was hilarious. The video is difficult to see (we have low lighting in our living room), but the sound is really the best part anyway.

Here are a few more random pics that y'all may enjoy.

Eli discovering Layla's doggie door.


Out we go. Fun times...





Ali and Eli havin' some fun in the sun. Look at my big guy standing up all by himself!





Eli knows that it is a big no-no to play with Layla's water bowl, but sometimes the fun to be had is just too enticing for him. I looked up from doing dishes the other day to find this.


Yep - he's sitting in the salad bowl (which I often let him play with while I'm working in the kitchen) while splashing around in the water. Now I do realize that the appropriate reaction would have been to sternly correct him instead grabbing the camera and trying to hide my giggles. But then I would have missed this great photo op. It may not have been my best parenting moment (seeing as how it seems recently that we're back to square one with the water bowl issue), but it's one heck of a pic, don't ya think? :)

Can you believe that Eli will be a year old two weeks from tomorrow? A year old!!! I can't. Time is going by way too fast..... Stay tuned for birthday pics!

Gosh he is adorable! The picture of him in the salad bowl is great. I can't believe he will be one soon. Where did the time go.

That laugh is amazing :).

Gina said...

He's so cute. :) :) I got a kick out of him figuring out how to get in and out of the doggy door. :)

Beth said...

Tooooooo cute! Love it! In one bowl and playing with another bowl is just great!

Rachel said...

Cute!! And although she figured it out first, I DON'T THINK the doggy door discovery was Ali's fault. . . was it?

I get to keep Eli in the nursery, and I have to say he is one happy boy. A happy BUSY boy. I know you stay active at home. :) I love his smile.

Lindsay said...

Very busy! He keeps me on my toes.

And Rach, I think it was just a matter of time before he discovered the doggie door. I won't blame Ali :). Thankfully, he hasn't discoved how to lift the gate that slide over it. Yet....
