Eli has started having a little bit of separation anxiety. He does not like for me to be out of his sight and gets quite disturbed when he cannot see me.

He sat outside the bathroom door and cried and cried while I took a shower the other day. All of the sudden, it got quiet and I thought he had gone into the other room to play. I came out and he had fallen asleep on the floor in front of the bathroom door.

 He is quite pitiful.

I had to take Max to the doctor on Monday and Sheldon was able to be home with the other boys. He sent me these pictures of Eli and told me he was not a happy camper. He wanted his mommy and did not want anything to do with Sheldon.

 *The picture on the left really makes me laugh. You can certainly tell that he is not happy that I am not at home with him.

He was pretty excited to be reunited with his mommy when I got home.

Eli's Birthday

Eli turned 1 this past Friday and we spent the day celebrating.

We had pancakes for breakfast and Eli had his first bottle as a one year old.

 The big boys got ready and we made a trip to Max's school where he was receiving an award. I thought it was for best student in PreK, but it was for perfect attendance during the past 6 weeks.

We went on as usual for the rest of the morning and afternoon. Eli took a good afternoon nap and then it was time for presents.

He already received a couple of fun toys for Christmas and his birthday from other family members, so Sheldon and I got him the next best thing. He loves to eat and yogurt melts are his favorite, so he was in heaven.

We went out to eat for his birthday and then it was time for cupcakes. He thoroughly enjoyed it and did not even mind that there was no frosting on it.

We had such a great day celebrating out birthday boy and look forward to many many more!

Eli is One!

Today, our 3rd son turns 1.

Sheldon and I have been so blessed to have 3 sons. Each one of our boys is unique and brings such joy to our family.

Eli may be the third child, but he has been the first in many ways this year.

He is the first to sleep through the night. (at 8 weeks)
He is the first to roll over and crawl.
He is our child that walked the earliest. (full time walker at 11.5 months)

Eli has brought a year of happiness and love to our family and we are so grateful to have him in our family!

Lazy Thursday

Crocker usually starts his morning by coming upstairs and making himself a bed in the chair. He sleeps a little while longer before he comes and wakes us up.

Crocker goes to preschool 3 mornings a week and Max is at school full days. Eli gets pretty lonely. He is always happy when Crocker is home and he has a playmate.

Eli is quite the mama's boy and has been spending a lot of time in my lap lately. (more than usual)We are headed to the doctor today and I am fairly certain he has an ear infection.

 In other news, Eli is officially a full time walker. He has been taking steps here and there for over a month. The past week or so, he has really taken off and started walking everywhere.

Many Faces of Crocker

Crocker wanted me to take his picture the other day. He was having so much fun and making the cutest faces.

Playtime with Boys

On a whim the other day, I got out cups for the boys to play with. They made towers and used their Nerf guns to shoot them down.
They had so much fun and it has become a favorite game in our home.

Fun Weekend

Sheldon wanted to take the boys to a nearby town to the discovery museum this past weekend. We went and had the best time.
Most of the exhibits were a little too old for the boys, but they had fun playing with them anyway.
We had such a good day and came home ready for another week.

Mom's Day Out

Over the past few months, I have been having trouble with my thyroid. My doctor ran a few tests, but ultimately decided to refer me to a specialist.

My appointment was Monday, so Sheldon took the day off to stay with the boys. I went to town early to go shopping and eat lunch. It was kinda nice not to have 3 car seats in the back of my car.


 I went to Target and browsed around.

I ate lunch at Olive Garden and had my favorite soup.


I went into the appointment thinking I might be put on medication, but things took a different turn. They did an in house ultrasound and the doctor was concerned about one of the nodules. I ended up having a fine needle aspiration and the cells were sent off to determine if they are cancerous.

I have another appointment in a few weeks and we will get the results of the test and determine the best treatment plan.


We are optimistic and hopeful that everything will be fine. As for now, I have a lovely bruise on my neck.

He is still taking 2 naps a day and sleeping 13 hours a night.

He is almost walking full time. He is walking and crawling 1/2 and 1/2.

He weighs 25 pounds and is 26 inches tall.

Last of Christmas Break

The boys had 2 weeks off from school and we had such a good time. We played the Wii, built Legos, and watched movies.

These are the last of the break pictures that I wanted to blog.

Eli received this climb up play slide for Christmas. He can climb up it by himself, but then he is scared to death. He does not like to slide by himself.


We have been letting Crocker's hair grow out and it might be time for a trim. Sheldon told he the other day that he didn't know we were raising hippies. ha!


This sweet baby hasn't been feeling good and has been my shadow for the past week.


His favorite thing to do is walk behind the end table and try and play with the cords.


 Eli has been whiny and not feeling well for a week or so. I took him to the doctor and he has an ear infection and bronchitis. Sheldon had to work, so all the boys went with me. The big boys were angels thanks to technology and m&m's.

 Eli and I were a little excited to come home to an empty house after we dropped the big boys off at school. Yay for routines and time with Eli alone!
