My boys are the best things alive. It is so much fun watching Eli's personality grow and seeing him become more and more like his father everyday. Good thing Alex is an amazing man and a good person for Eli to look up to. Alex just adores his little boy and it is so much fun to see them together. I love them both!
We have the most amazing photographer that lives here in Idaho. Tyra has done out engagement, one year, and now Eli's newborn pictures. Thank you SOOO much Tyra for helping us document our life! Now get ready for tons and tons of pictures of our cute little boy!
We love our baby! He is the best baby in the world and lives life with a little bit of sass! I absolutely love it and love watching him grow up everyday! Life is the best!
Even though we still have a child, Alex and I try to get out with each other as much as possible. We are so grateful to have so many great friends in town that are willing to babysit so that we are able to go out and still have fun. Eli loves hanging out with other people and yesterday he was able to hang out with one of his best buddies Claire. He loves to go play with Auntie Claire and he also met her roommate Lacey and loved her! He just hung out with them and she took the cutest pictures of him. Here is one that is just adorable!
Isn't he just the cutest? She did such a great job! So since we had such great babysitters watching him, we went on a date to the Ropes Course on campus. I have wanted to do the Ropes Course for the longest time but you normally have to get a bis group to go, but last night they had a married couples night. I wanted to go while I was pregnant, but Alex said that probably would not be the best idea. So now I am not pregnant and I can climb whatever I want! We had to take the opportunity to do the Ropes Course so we did! It was so much fun! They said that this exercise would teach you to trust each other. Alex and I were the first ones to climb and once you got to the top, the view is AMAZING! The sun was shining, the skies were blue, the clouds were pure white, you could see the rolling green hills in Idaho, the little town, oh it was just amazing! We could not have asked for a better time! I am grateful to have such a wonderful husband who I have so much fun with on our many life adventures.
I have to say that having a baby is way too much fun. My favorite part is his facial expressions. He keeps Alex and I laughing forever! We definitely had to make sure that we had evidence of these wonderful expressions that he makes! Hope you all enjoy them as well!
We call this the many of faces of Eli! How can you not just love his little face!
On Tuesday evening I kept getting really weird phone calls from Alex. He
would call and then I could not hear anything, like the connection had
been cut out. This happened for about 30 minutes and I didn't know what
was going on. Finally one time he called I could hear him talking. His
call kept cutting out though and I let him know that I had no idea what
he was saying. All I could hear him say was elevator, so I asked him why
he didn't just call me when he got off the elevator. He kept saying no
no. I was so confused. This went on for a couple of minutes and then I
could finally hear every word he was saying. He said that he was in the
elevator. I told him to call me when he got out of the elevator. He said
that he couldn't. And I asked him why he couldn't. And he told me that
he was stuck and had been stuck in there for the past 30 minutes!!!!!!!!
This definitely would be something that would happen to Alex. He always
has such fun stories and now he has something to add to his list. He
did call for help, but he was still just waiting for someone to help him
out. We chatted for a little bit and then the phone cut out again. Of
course this worried me because sometimes I just worry about things. The
last time I talked to him was 5:15 at night and I told myself that if I
didn't hear from him by 6:00 I would go the school and get him out
myself. 6:00 rolled around and I still had not gotten a hold of him. So I
got Eli all bundled up and we went to the school. By the time I was
almost there, Alex called and let me know that he was out. He was in the
elevator for almost an hour and a half!!!! That is a super long time
and I would have freaked out if I was in there for that long that is for
sure. I am just glad that he got out safe. He was grateful that he was
able to get a lot of homework done while he was stuck in there.
