Eli got to spend a little time with with his Cousin Chase & his friend Ashton recently. We saw Chase at my Grandma's birthday party, and Eli couldn't take his eyes off of him. I guess it's because we haven't really been around any other kids yet, so he was fascinated by this little person closer to his size.

I asked Chase if he & Eli would be friends when Eli got bigger, and Chase said "I love friends!"

We hung out with Lauren & Ashton around St. Patrick's day (obviously). Eli is wearing Ashton's outfit from last year, but it's just a tad (very) tight, lol. The boys look very handsome in their party attire!

Eli Learns to Read!

Or maybe Eli holds a of those anyway.

So much going on! Our little guy is getting so expressive & interactive. He talks all the time, laughs, and smiles at everyone. After rolling over the first time, he went on strike for a while, but he's doing quite a bit of rolling now. Tonight he rolled over almost immediately every time I put him on his tummy (like 5 times)! He also has 2 teeth poking out now on bottom, which is very exciting, even though it can make him a bit of a cranky camper at times. And at the doctor today, he weighed 16 lbs 10 oz and was 25 3/4" long (in the 80th % for both weight and height). Dr. Shaw said she was thrilled with his development and that he was doing more than she would expect a baby his age to be doing. We're just coming right along!

Could you keep it down? I'm trying to read.

This is the scary part!
No, don't take it yet, Mom. It's just getting good!
