8 Weeks!

I'm 8 weeks old today! Can you believe it?!?

Today Mommy caught me watching the mobile. Don't tell anyone okay? Only babies do that!

We had a visitor the other day. Mommy's friend Shelley was here for the holidays and got to meet me! I liked playing with her in my jumperoo!

After all that I was tuckered out!

Thanksgiving Extravaganza!

Prepare yourself folks. This is gonna be a long one!

Mommy and Daddy and Marley and I went to Madison for my first Thanksgiving. It was super fun! I got to see my aunts and uncles and grandparents again! First we went to Daddy's parents' house to sleep after our long drive. I was so excited in the morning because Grandma fed me instead of Mommy!

After breakfast we drove to Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Kyle's house for a Thanksgiving meal. I got to see my Grandma and Grandpa Schehr and my Aunt Darcy and Uncle Rich too! I was passed around the hold time, which was great because I LOVE being the center of attention.

After dinner, I visited with Uncle Kyle and Aunt Jennifer and showed them my boxing skills!

I was exhausted by my visit, but on Friday morning I was up and exercising!

On Friday evening we went to another Thanksgiving meal at Grandma and Grandpa Larson's house. I was, again, the center of attention. This time even Grandpa Larson held me. I liked him a lot and gave him a great big smile when I first looked at him.

Grandpa Kenny made a video of my first Thanksgiving too!

Curly-que Cowlick!

Mommy was wearing me in the Baby Bjorn when she noticed this:

To quote Mommy's friend Jean from the Yarnery, "Oh for cute!"

Little Big Man

I wore my jeans and boots yesterday. Mommy and Daddy thought I looked like a miniature little man. I'm a little big man!

And just to embarass me, Daddy took a picture of me sucking Mommy's nose. Mommy said she was going to show it to all my future girlfriends...

And also, Marley got a new collar. Isn't he handsome? Not as handsome as me though!

We Went on a Walk Today!

It wasn't my first walk, but it was the first walk that Daddy photographed! I think Daddy was mostly taking pictures of Mommy because you can't even see me in that stroller!

During our walk a nice lady saw Daddy taking pictures of me and Mommy and asked if we wanted her to take a picture of our whole family. I think it turned out pretty nice even if you can't see me.

Mommy thought I looked too cute snoozing on the walk so she took some close-ups. FINALLY!

Mommy also took a picture of this tree on our block because it was SO pretty!

Sweet Pea

I finally fit into the sweet pea jammies that Grandma Larson bought for me so Mommy decided to take a video and a bunch of pictures. Mommy thinks I should be a baby model since I'm so dang cute.

Mommy also took some photos of me in my diaper. How embarassing!

Marley was terribly jealous of all the attention I was getting.

Tired Eli

My days are so tough sometimes that I don't even get to enjoy my swing and nuk before I zonk out!

Mommy made me another hat!

It's cashmere. Only the best for me! Actually, it's just leftover from when Mommy made Grandma Larson a hat. It really brings out my eyes, don't you think?

So Freakin' Cute

Listen closely!

I'm so cute when I'm sleeping!

Mommy thinks my hair looks funny now that I'm losing it. She calls it baby pattern baldness.

5 Weeks!

I'm 5 weeks old today!

And I'm really starting to like the Baby Bjorn. Mommy is GLAD.

Mommy made me a new hat!

Eli's Got a Big Ol' Butt

I went to the doctor yesterday. I gained 2 pounds since my last visit! I weight 8 pounds, 11 ounces now. Mommy and Daddy are very happy, but I'm not so sure. Plus Mommy has started putting cloth diapers on me and now my butt looks HUGE. See?

I also look huge from the front now. See the difference?

Mommy thinks it's really funny. I don't, so much.

I need to exercise.

But I AM better able to do a bootie dance now!

If only I could stop eating!

Perhaps I can be distracted from eating by watching these funny looking bears...

More pics from this weekend

Aunt Darcy sent Mommy some really cute pictures she took this weekend.

Oh, and here's a picture of me in the new outfit mommy bought for me. Aren't I cute?
