Eli is 7 months old

This post is a bit overdue. Eli is now 7 months old, has one tooth and is working on a second. He is sitting up really well, you can actually walk away from him and trust that he will still be sitting up when you return. I know I say this every month, but he is the happiest little guy ever. He lights up when he sees you and squeals with delight if you talk or play a game of peek-a-boo with him. He LOVES his big brother and watches his every move. My most favorite thing that he does right now though is at any given moment when you are holding him he wraps his arms around your neck and gives you the biggest (and slobbery) kiss, usually right on the mouth. Then he squeals and smiles and buries his head in your shoulder. I love it. And I know that it is fleeting and try to permanently imprint it in my memory every time he does it.

love those big brown eyes!
Hard at work.

We had a ridiculously unseasonably warm few days last week so we took advantage of the weather and our deck and played outside. It was glorious and gives me hope that spring is not too far away.
