Mom's a bum

I haven't taken any pictures lately. I will. This weekend :-D Eli is doing fantastic. He's very small for his age but I am tryin to take that with a grain of salt. He is in the 5% for his height and weight and actually lost half an inch between his 12 mo and 15 mo appt. o.O (someone measured wrong).

He's getting teeth galore and they are causing some issues. I feel so bad for him. I'm just hoping they come in quickly and we get it over with!!

He's a very active little kid. Always running away from you. Climbing on the table. Getting into everything... *sigh* :P It's so hard to not be yelling no all the time. He's always amazingly affectionate. I love it. He gives the best hugs and kisses and is blowing kisses now. It just melts my heart.

He loves the fact that he can go outside and pick rasberries or fresh peas (although dismayed that the strawberries are gone). He understands so well! He tries to repeat about any word you say, and often times it's just a jumble but he's getting there. He's also attempting to potty train. He can't say poop (or has no desire to?) but he will say dirty. At first it was AFTER he went. Then in the middle of it.. but now he's attempting to tell us he's dirty "right" before it happens. I've sat him on the seat a few times and he squeezes, but nothing has happened yet. It's okay. He's young and we aren't pushing it! Now if I could get him to be a little more enthusiastic about brushing his teeth.

Time is going by fast and and my baby is now a toddler. A walking, talking, able to make simple decisions on his own toddler. :-D

Life is grand!
