18 Months and 30 Weeks

Yes, this post is a little late, but Eli is 18 months old and I am 30 weeks pregnant with little brother or little sister! I can't believe I am so close to the end of this pregnancy already! It has been going really well so far. I think I'm a little more tired this time around but chasing an 18 month old will do that to you! I'm going to the doctor every two weeks now and it won't be long before it is every week. I've already been having a few braxton hicks contractions but don't worry...nothing too regular. :)

We are (very) slowly but surely getting prepared for baby Davis #2. The crib is here and half way put together! lol We also got down some other things we will need from the attic (onesies, gowns, receiving blankets, etc.) but I need to go through them and get them washed and organized. It will get done...eventually! :)

Eli just keeps getting bigger every day! I love how much he changes daily and the new things he does and says. He is so full of energy and loves to run around the house. Eli loves books and puzzles and is obsessed with balls! Big balls, small balls, tennis balls, footballs, name it, he loves it! He also loves watching football on TV. He recognizes when it comes on and cheers very loudly! Meal time can be a chore since Eli isn't usually all that interested in eating. He will eat fruit all day long but is a bit more picky when it comes to veggies. He isn't really a meat eater other than the occasional piece of lunch meat turkey or chicken nuggets. Overall, he is doing great and we love having him around! I am trying to savor every moment with him until Baby Davis #2 arrives!
