My boy

Eli was one month old yesterday. If I felt like time flew before it feels so even more. It has been such an incredible blessing adding this little guy to our family. When I was at the hospital with Eli in the nursery the lactation consultant recommended doing skin to skin time with him, especially because I'm not nursing. It is time I look forward to, I love the quiet bonding it provides.

If I were to describe Eli, it would go something like this.

-As long as he is fed he is content.
- He can sleep anywhere, but seems more comfortable sleeping while being held. (As we speak, I am hen pecking at the keyboard while he sleeps in my arms.)
-He has such an easy going nature, and such a sweet spirit.
-He is my little cuddle bug.
-Eli has the deepest blue eyes. Sometimes when he looks at me, I wonder what he would tell me if he could.

There is nothing quite like a new baby. It has been so sweet to see my girls want to be actively a part of Eli's care. Often when I feed him, Emma comes over to help hold the bottle and then tries to take it out of his mouth, and when I tell her not to take it away she says "He needs to breave." Which was the case when he first came home. Ruby loves to help with bathing him and is helpful to get whatever I need.


  1. He is so cute! I love that the girls are loving helping with him. What sweethearts, and what a great experience for them! You have such sweet kids!

  2. seriously a month already!?!?! he's so sweet. what a joy he is to your home. I love that your girls love him so much. :)

  3. Oh I LOVE that pic of him sleeping with his little hand tucked under his chin. Gorgeous :) And those bright wide-open eyes in the last shots!! So cute. I can't believe he's already a month old. Wowza how time flies!

  4. What an angel! Hopefully soon we can get our two little boys together to play! :) Maybe in a few months :) Glad he's doing so well!

  5. What a special and sweet little grandson I have. These pictures of him are so cute! I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow! Can't wait to snuggle that little guy! Love ya!
