It's been too long

Hello everyone,
Sorry for not posting for a while, but Eli has me runnin' ragged. He is growing like a weed. He has his first physical on Monday and I can't wait to see how much he weighs. Two weeks ago he weighed in at 10 lbs. 9 oz. He's definitely packing it in. He eats between 3 and 4 ozs. every 3 hours.

Jonah's language is just exploding. He'll imitate every word you say and on top of that he understands every conversation. Yesterday, Rob & I were talking about what cake Rob should have for his birthday with my parents. Jonah chimes in that he wants "more"( signing and saying it).
We said "more what?"
He said "kek," we couldn't figure out what that was, and he kept saying it. Then suddenly I realized he was saying "cake". He turned to my mom and said "kek". We were laughing hysterically. The lesson we learned, was don't talk about food Jonah will want in front of him. He is just so smart and picks up on everything. I know I'm his mom but I'm allowed to be biased.

Eli continues to need to be held on a constant basis, but I get a reprieve at night b/c he'll sleep in his bed for 3 hours at a time.

Hope all is well and I hope to update more often.
