Eli 6 Months!

I just went in for Eli's 6 month check up. He is growing so fast. He weighed 17lbs and 15 oz and was 27 1/4 inches long. We just started feeding him rice cereal regularly. At first he was gagging on it, but now he is slowly eating some and spitting some out.
Ava and Eli love to play together. It is the sweetest thing when I'm making dinner and all the sudden I hear Ava and Eli giggling. Ava loves to make him laugh and Eli thinks she is pretty funny! I will post some pictures soon, my camera battery is dead and I just ordered rechragable batteries. I haven't posted in a while, and just figured out how to change my blog back ground thanks to Ashlee! Thanks Ash! I'll try to keep up and blog more often, life just gets so busy!

We are back!!

Honestly I don't even know where to start! So, much has happened over the holidays and I haven't blogged in over 2 months!!
To start out we had a great time with our family. It was so good to be back in our home town, since we hadn't been there in almost a year. It was fun to show everyone our sweet new baby. He is such a pleasant little guy and growing so fast. Ava is our little ball of fire and had a lot of fun with her aunts, uncles and grandparents...and I can't forget all of her little cousins she loved to play with!! There is never a dull moment with our sweet Ava!
After Thanksgiving Justin came back to Omaha to finish hie finals. We were apart for 3 WEEKS!! It was a long and tuff 3 weeks apart. To top in all off, the day he was going to come back there was bad weather. So he ended up not coming home until the next day. I was glad he made it back to me safely! Here are a few pictures from our trip to Idaho!

One morning we woke up and it snowed..A LOT!! Ava was all ready to go out side first thing in the morning. She was still in her PJs and heading for the door, I bundles her up as warm as I could and sent her outside. When she came inside she was ready for a warm bath.

The break was nice to just lounge around taking naps, playing games or watching Christmas movies.
We went to my dads on Christmas Eve to celebrate with him. He bought all the grandkids cute matching Chirstmas outfits. You can tell they sure love him!
Ava and her cousin Emma. They are so cute together! They enjoyed having tea party together and played house. It was fun to see her play so cute with her cousins!
