crazy life indeed...

We have a four month old now! I can not believe how quickly Elijah is growing. He is developing such a little (or rather big!) personality! He is such a people person, smiling and laughing at anyone who will stop and talk to him. I guess you can say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, Elijah loves being the center of attention!

We have had a few milestones over the past couple of months

-Elijah can now roll on his own from his belly to his back! It is the cutest thing, but has made bed/naptime quite interesting! He just wants to play!

-He has realized he can pick up his pacifier and put it in his mouth all by himself...that is if he doesn't want to suck his thumb! He loves sucking his thumb!

-He started eating rice cereal every morning a few weeks ago. He LOVES it! When he sees his bowl he starts reaching for it and opening his mouth. He also tries to feed himself by pulling the spoon to his mouth! I can't wait to see his reaction to baby food!

-We had our first sickness a couple of weeks ago. Elijah got bronchiolitus and an ear infection. It was a pretty crazy time at our house. However, he never lost his happiness! He kept smiling and playing through it all!

-He participated in his first DNOW! We had a busy weekend but he loved every minute of it. We got great use out of our Baby Sling and Baby Bjorn! We even took the exersaucer outside and he played while the kids had rec time. We love being in the ministry!!

We are having another time coming up! Amber and Adam will be visiting for a few days this week, we are so excited to see some family! It's sure hard being far from everyone. We also have our first church directory family photo this weekend!
