Christmas and Whatnot!

Well, we made it! We survived Christmas!! I don't think Eli thought it was any more special than any other day, but for me, it was the most special Christmas ever!

These pictures are of Eli getting into the Christmas Spirit! He really liked showing off his size three diapers that are still WAY too big for him!

Eli and his favorite cousin Katie! For Christmas, Eli got Katie an African American Cabbage Patch Doll. Katie decided that the perfect name for her new doll is Baby Eli. It didn't matter to her that the doll was a girl!

Eli and I would play this little game where I would hold him up above me. He'd put his head down so we could touch foreheads then he would give me a big open mouthed kiss!

He really enjoyed the attention he got from friends and family. This is him with his Auntie Winter.

Making music with Grandpa!!

Yesterday marked four weeks since Eli has been home. And today was Eli's ten month Birthday!
Happy Ten Months, Baby Boy!!!

Eli is soooooooo cute! I can't stand it!
To answer your question (and sorry it took so long to respond) the puppy did not stay with us. He is with a foster family that does not have two large mutts (:

Here is his rescue link if you know anyone who wants him...

Happy New year! I hope to see you in person very soon!
