A mommy moment

Unfortunantly Eli is still sick :( Which stinks. He was doing fine on Friday but then got sick all over again on Saturday. He was alright yesterday so we will see. Poor kiddo. The bug's just hanging on.

He climbed the stairs this morning. Yup! I can imagine the shock on your face *haha* He only got up two steps before I grabbed him of course, but he had no issues doing it whatsoever. I think he's part monkey. He's just so darn cute sometimes.

I had to share the following mommy moment:

Even though I generally run on 6 hours of sleep, waking up with him in the middle of the night can be the most precious time of the day. He's usually standing on the side of his crib babbeling at me. I make him a bottle and lay him in bed between Ed and I and feed him. He usually rubs his hand up and down my arm or sometimes on my cheek. Last night he was grabbing my nose and moving my face all around.. then getting a big smile as he still had the bottle in his mouth. It just makes you forget all about the fact that it's 4 am and you really want to be sleeping. Andd sometimes he likes to just cuddle up next to me and snooze in bed until it's time to get up for the day. Andd sometimes he decides he doesn't want to go back to sleep and he'd rather pull on Daddy's goatee while he's trying to sleep. *haha*

Either way, you can't help but smile :-D

The "bug"

Our household just got over the dreaded stomach bug. I haven't been sick with that for 8 years! The first winter with a baby and it hits us all! (by all I mean mother in law, father in law, brother in law, sister in law and one neice. The other so far is okay). We all had slightly different variations.

Eli started with it monday with, to be kind i'll just say, bad diapers. Tuesday I was very very ill as was Ed, then tuesday evening Eli was 'ill.' (aka yarfing). Wednesday he seemed better but then in the middle of the night there was more yarf. It was not fun.

I think today we are finally over it. We fed him mostly a pedialyte mixture yesterday (Water, salt, sugar, jello). Soo today MIL is going to try some banana's for breakfast and we'll see how that goes.

In other news: He's really mastered pulling himself up and standing next to things. He's not really cruising yet but getting there. And boy is he a fast crawler. If he really wants something he takes off. He's saying all kinds of things now. All within a few days! he's saying ba ba and even said mummum a few times. He's saying gaa and all other sorts of babbelings.

He also ate some dog food this morning. By the time Ed got to him (after we heard the bowl tip) he had dog food in his hands. I was cleaning off his hands and was like, wait a minute, whats in your mouth. Sure enough some dog food. The kicker is, he was so sneaky about it! he had a completely straight face and wasn't chewing or doing anything to give away the fact that he had dog food in there.

If this is the sign of things to come..well... I'm going to be in trouble.

SOO I thought we might be finally getting a tooth. Sleepless nights, lots of crank, a lil lump... but now I'm not so sure. I don't feel the lump anymore. It must have sucked itself in. Ah well.

Eli continues to crawl around like crazy. We've had to block him off from the dining room/kitchen area. he's fast. I was cooking dinner last night and within 2 seconds Eli was from the living room to the kitchen tipping the dog food bowl. It's like he has radar. Hm I shouldn't play with this so lets make a beline and get there before mom knows what's going on!!!

And he likes dancing ;) Or mostly me spinning around and hopping up and down while he just holds on for dear life and giggles like crazy :-D

here are some moree pictures (or there were some pictures..they always post first and I forget)

more pix


Some pics

Soo we took some pics this evening which was harder then heck. Eli's so busy crawling around and exploring we couldnt keep him still. Plus he would NOT look at us.

THEN I come in and download, and the camera was on the wrong setting. the pics aren't bad but not very good either. The camera needed to be set for a better picture quality so I could print them out :( soo

these will have to do for now. Maybe I'll tackle it again tmrw.
