Newport Aquarium

We went to the Newport Aquarium on Friday and had a blast. Eli loved all of the different sea life and brought home a new stuffed animal to add to his collection. Snowy is a white seal pup and is best friends with another recent addition, a chameleon.
It was cold, but sunny so after the aquarium we headed over to the beach, ran around on the sand and watched the sunset.
I was worried Eli would have a hard time with 6 hours in the car in one day, but he did great.
I can wait until summer, and all of the adventures we'll have!

The day after

The day after always looks worse.
As bad as it looks, Eli doesn't seem to mind. He still avoids chewing with his front teeth, so I have to cut up all of his food, but other than that he's acting just fine. I'm glad his teeth survived, I've heard so many horror stories about boys knocking out their front teeth. I'm glad to have avoided a long, painful and expensive adventure this time around.

Eli loves to throw rocks in water, and of course he ended up in the water.
Good thing it was a nice day because he ran around Rood Bridge Park for about an hour with no pants on! He had no problem with this, in fact I think he would prefer to always go without pants.

Today Eli tripped and fell in the parking lot at preschool. He knocked his 2 front teeth loose and we had our first emergency trip to the dentist. His teeth should be fine, we'll just have to watch for discoloration over the next week or so to make sure the nerve wasn't damaged. Of course he wouldn't let me take a good picture of him, but you can see his mouth pretty good in this one.
