Our 3 Month Eli

Eli is growing up WAY too fast! I can't even believe it!!! He is already three months and is getting so big!!! Not much is happening in out lives, just enjoying our summer. Alex is working a lot in the lab and I have gone back to work full time. It is so hard to be away from Eli and Alex all day. We are also getting ready for the semester to start up again in September. We are loving the heat but could also use some serious rain. Now we have tons of pictures of Eli because we just love him to pieces.

Happy Baby

He loves to stand up with the big boys

Sleepy baby but always has his binkie with him

He loves to play with his dad

He falls asleep like this all the time. I don't know how that could be comfortable.

Our very own Micky Mouse

Someone got into the powder sugar!!!!

We just love him to pieces! Look how cute he is!

He was trying to eat Alex's hair.

Dad's hair tastes nasty!!!!

He was helping Alex cheat! They are partners in crime!

Alex went on vacation and Eli was not too happy so he slept with Alex's shirt while he was gone and would hold onto it. It was the cutest thing in the entire world. 

HE ROLLED OVER BY HIMSELF!!!! We kind of got a picture of it but we are pretty proud of him!

Two Years and Still Going Strong!

As of today Alex and I have been married for two years!!!! I cannot believe that it has been that long already. Two years ago we were stepping into the temple to be sealed for time and eternity and I could not have chosen a better man to be married to. I just love him way too much. I was looking at our old pictures and reminiscing about our life and it was just way too fun. So I decided that these pictures needed to be shared.

These are our engagement photos which were so much fun to take. This is also when we discovered one of our favorite photographers Tyra Andrews.

And then we got married and what a wonderful day it was. We were surrounded by our friends and our family and was able to make one of the biggest and greatest choice that we have ever made. It was a nice hot sunny day and we could not have asked for anything more. This is where our story and adventures began.

And then we got to our one year anniversary and we were so excited. We celebrated by taking one year anniversary pictures which turned out fantastic. When we hit that year mark we thought that we were so cool and we felt so accomplished. Now that we have been married two years it is even more exciting.

From two years of marriage we have received the greatest gift that we could ever ask for! BABY ELI!!

He has brought so much joy in our lives and we are so lucky to have him, but I am even luckier to have Alex in my life. We have so many great adventures and laugh so much. He makes my life complete and I am so grateful for everything that he does. Happy Anniversary Alex!!!!! Here's to two years and many more to come!

The Best Husband Ever!

This past week has been super crazy. I have gone back to work with a full time schedule and am just exhausted. Alex has been staying home with Eli and is doing such a great job. Eli just loves his dad and I know that he is enjoying spending all this time with him. So yesterday I had to work and it was the longest Sunday that I have ever worked in my life. It was continuously busy and never settled down and it was just crazy. When I left work I was more than excited to get home. When I finally got home it was the best sight ever. Alex had cleaned the entire house, done all the things that I had asked him to do in the past such as change lightbulbs and put the baby monitor on the wall, and he had made a delicious dinner. It was the greatest thing ever. I love Ale so much and am so grateful that he is willing to help me with all that I do. I have to say that I have the best husband in the world!

Another great gift that Alex helps me with is my baby Eli. He is the cutest baby ever and we just love him. He is getting so big and I can't believe that he is almost 3 months old already. I know that I have not put up many pictures of him lately which is the biggest shame ever! Our camera was lost and then Alex found it yesterday. Another reason why he is so amazing. So here is a picture or two of Eli and don't worry, I won't be losing the camera anymore. I hate not being able to get ever moment of his life on camera.
