Wrapping Up 2011

Well, what can I say? I’ve gotten a little behind on my blogging. To my defense, we’ve been very busy around here! What’s happened in the last two months? Let’s catch up…

Poppa Joe, “Grandmother” Kelli and Aunt Anna Belle came for a Thanksgiving visit…

I started my new graphic design position at Children’s on December 5th. My new office is right down the hall from my old one, and I’ve been having way too much fun at work.

Eli also turned 2 months old on December 5th. At his 8 week check-up he was 22″ long, weighed 11 pounds & 13 ounces, and his head measured 15.25″. He was in 0-3 mos clothing and a size 1 diaper.

Alston had his first Christmas program at school (video to come)…
We went to see Santa…

These two boys spent lots of bonding time together over Christmas break…

We celebrated with family…
We waited on Santa…

And he finally came…
And left a really big surprise in the back yard…
We spent time with family…
And had a very merry holiday!

In case you were curious, here are some pictures to compare Alston and Eli.
(The top row in each set are of Alston and the bottom row in each set are of Eli.)
 You can definitely see the similarities in the pictures below…

Eli – 1 Month

Eli has grown so much over the past month. I can’t believe he’s already 5 weeks old! He had his one month check-up this week. He’s already reached 10 pounds and is 21.5 inches long. He’s a very sweet and easy going baby. He only fusses when he wants a little attention and only gets upset when you take his clothes off. He doesn’t care much for being cold. He’s been sleeping very well, going 3-4 hours without waking. He’s such a sweet addition to our little family and we’re so blessed to have him!

Hello

Sorry for the lack of posts here lately. We’ve been trying to adjust to our new schedule and life as a family of four. I’ve been spending lots of time getting to know this little guy…

I’m sure you can understand!
