Eli is staying busy on the kitchen table while I make breakfast.

Eli looks like such a big boy in his overalls.

We finally found something Eli likes, the Rainforest Swing. He likes to swing, nap and look at the bright mobile. It also makes animal noises and when the monkey hoots Eli makes little baby noises back at it.

I have discovered that my Baby has a snooze button. When he starts to wake up he grunts and groans, and if I catch it early enough I can stave him off. I just give him a few pats and he'll go back to sleep for about 5 minutes. This only works 2 or 3 times, and gives me just enough time to really wake up. I didn't know we signed up for this feature, but I love it.

Before we had Eli we had all of these great ideas about parenting, we thought we knew it all. I've had some experience with children from helping my Mom with her daycare and I knew I never wanted to start patting my child to sleep, give him a pacifier or let him sleep in my bed. I thought it was a mark of good parenting if a child would go to bed on their own, unassisted.

Well, after almost 7 weeks of not sleeping you can see what we've resorted to. I should've learned by now not to judge people, sometimes you end up doing just what you thought was all wrong and then you have to eat your words. It's a good thing words are calorie free, or I'd be having a tough time loosing this pregnancy weight!

Last night Eli slept for 6 hours straight, same as the night before. I love the Binki and he loves our bed!

Yesterday was Eli's first trip to the park. He ate and then slept while Sterling had some fun on the slide.

I couldn't help myself, even though I know outfits with ears are embarrassing.

It seems like every time I nurse Eli he's a little bit longer and a little bit heavier. Yesterday I decided to weigh and measure him and even I was surprised. He's 24 1/2 inches long and 14 lbs. I guess we're going to have a big boy!
