Eli discovered his tongue. He sticks it out all of the time, but especially when he's eating. Ben and I just can't stop laughing when he does this.

My Brother sent Eli a Monkey pupet from the Charles Paddock Zoo. Monkeys are Eli's favorite, thanks Uncle Chris!

Happy 4 month Birthday! Eli was 19 pounds and 28 inches long on Tuesday.

I haven't had time to blog lately because I had a cold and passed it onto Eli. Poor baby is all stuffed up and having trouble sleeping. He's only been sleeping well for the last couple of weeks, so I hope we return to "normal" when he's feeling better.

I just found out that Ben has pictures of Eli in the hospital on his phone. I didn't know we had any of him when he was so little, so I'm very excited.

Yep, I think they look a lot alike.

Here's a picture of my brother Chris when he was a baby. We think Eli looks a lot like him!

He likes looking at the diaper bag.

I know in the bath again, but can you blame me?

Eli likes getting cards from my Mom.

Here he's getting a really close look!

Eli is starting to grab toys now. He loves his fish and his new puppy from Grandma Rowe.

I made my first children's birthday cake. It was Robert's (Ben's Nephew) 4th birthday on Sunday and we had a family get together. We were also celebrating Eli's blessing (finally), Mother's day and Ben Dick's birthday all at once.

Here's Eli in his church outfit. Yes, these are size 12 mos., we weighed him yesterday and he's 18 lbs. and couple of weeks ago he was 27 in. long. Our baby is a tank (according to our Bishop).

I know, I know, I keep posting pictures of Eli in the tub. He's just so happy and cute at bath time I can't help myself. (Yes that's a scratch on his head, the snap on his onesie scraped his head on the way off. It's been a couple of hours now and you can't see it anymore)

Eli likes to look at himself in the mirror. This was difficult to get a picture of, but here was the best picture out of many flops.

We got our futon back from a friend on Monday. I went to Ross yesterday looking for new bedding and found this. I got the whole set, sheets, comforter cover, bed skirt and pillow shams for less than $50. We're using the comforter cover for a futon cover, I love shopping at Ross!
On Friday Eli rolled over for the first time. I was surprised because he hasn't really been trying to roll over and then he just did it. Now he rolls over a few times a day and is getting pretty good at it, although sometimes he gets stuck on his arm just before he gets to his belly.
