Day 123-{4 months old}

November 26, 2011
Dear Eli,
You are now 4 months old! You are getting chunkier and chunkier and taller and taller. You can roll over both ways now and want to sit up on your own SO badly.  You can sort of do the “tripod” sit, but your belly is in the way, so you get mad. You smile and laugh at just about any antics we do or don’t do. In other words you laugh very easily. 
You have enjoyed jumping in the jump a roo and watching your brother run past you this month. You have been resisting afternoon naps, but Mommy has her way of getting/making you sleep. :) You still sleep all through the night, so I really should not complain. 
You are a joy. We are glad that you are our boy and we can’t wait to teach you all about life, playing, and most of all Jesus. You are a special creation, made by Him and we are so glad that He gave us you!!
Love always,

Reid-{17 months old}

Dear Reid,
You are now almost 1 1/2 years old. This past month your eagerness to learn has exploded! You are learning so many new words that I can’t even remember all of the words you are saying. You love your brother and try to get him to dance, sing or play the piano with you. I love to see you learn and want to understand everything. I think you may be an engineer or a musician. :)
Your favorite thing this month was reading books, with assistance, or on your own. You like it when Mommy or Daddy point to different things on the page and tell you what they are and if we stop too early, you will pick our hands back up to point again.
You are so full of life, love and joy. After you are in bed for the night, Daddy and I will often say that we miss you. There is a certain air of happiness and joy when you are running around the house.
Discipline has been needed more as you are getting smarter and a little bit stubborn. You understand quickly and most of the time, don’t do the offending crime again.
We can’t believe how big you have grown and we LOVE YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH!
Love from,

Steve captured these pictures when Eli
was BELLY laughing 
when we sneezed. 
It started out that Steve really did sneeze,
so naturally we kept sneezing
to make Eli laugh.
It was so cute!
