Our family 2008; Ava 3, Eli 2 months
"We may not have it all together, but together we have it all."

Eli is 17days old today. I took him to his two week appointment on Friday and he already weighs 9 pounds. Yes, all my babies have been very healthy and over sized. Ava will be 3 October 21, but looks like she is 3 going on four. Life around here with two little ones has been good. We have had wonderful friends that have taken good care of us, bringing us very yummy dinners and inviting Ava to play, giving me time with Eli and time to sleep. We are so blessed to know such giving people. It really has been a great example to me on what a wonderful thing service is and a desire to do more to serve others.

Eli is such a sweet baby. Since he is my second baby, I realize even more how fast the time goes by and they grow up so fast. I love holding him and the cute little sounds he makes. He looks a lot like Ava and Justin (those Petersons have strong jeans) he is super cute. Ava loves singing Twinkle Twinkle to him and gives him lots (to many) kisses and hugs. Every time she wakes him up with kisses and hugs I just tell myself he needs to get used to commotion while he is sleeping because he has a very active sister!

Just so you know, I did bake the cake AND made the frosting, all from scratch. I know, I know, I'm amazing. I can't believe Eli is already 17 days, wow. You should definetly cherish these days because before you know it they learn how to talk and tell you NO all the time. Take care. Give me a call when you get a moment.
Love ya
