6 Month Eli!

Ok, so this post is REALLY late. Eli turned 6 months old on January 18th! We are having SO much fun with him! He talks to us all the time and is fascinated by Pita (the dog.) He loves to grab her ears, and she doesn't mind at all! He sits up pretty well on his least until he dives for a toy! :) He is rolling all over the place and starting to get up on his knees to scoot a few inches. He hasn't quite put together that if he uses his hands and arms along with his knees he could really get moving. He usually sleeps from about 8:30 pm to 6:00 am, which we are loving!! Every once in a while he wakes up crying/whining in the middle of the night, but if we turn his mobile on he usually goes right back to sleep. At his six month appt. the doctor said we are right on track with him having 4 bottles and 3 meals a day. He is driving us crazy by trying to turn over (toward the wall) EVERY TIME we change his diaper or clothes. It often takes two of us just to get the job done with our little wiggle worm. Eli was sick for the first time this past month with Bronchiolitis. We had to give him breathing treatments every couple of hours...definitely not his favorite thing since he screamed every time, but we made it through! Daddy's favorite new thing that Eli does is blowing raspberries, which he does often and makes a mess when doing it while eating. :)

6 Month Stats:
Height - 28 1/2 in. - 93%
Weight - 20 lbs. 8 oz. - 97%

Our Boy

My wonderful husband got me an AMAZING camera for Christmas. I LOVE it!! It takes such great pictures and has some really cool features. I've been playing with it a lot so I know I'm drive him crazy with all the pictures I've been taking (I'm kind of a picture freak!) Here are just a few of my favorite subject!
