Jen & Adam Visit

On Saturday, August 19th Jen and Adam were in town for just a little while, so we had breakfast with them. They got to meet Eli for the first time. They hadn't seen Jonah in a long time, so this visit was a great one for everybody. Most especially me and Rob, who don't get to see them often enough. Although they live in Vegas we've been unable to get away to go see them. This visit was also special because it was the first time that Eli got to meet his Godmommy. Thanks for coming to visit us.

Monday Funny

I thought I'd share a funny from this weekend. On Friday evening we were doing our normal bedtime routine. I was feeding Eli his bottle and Rob was about to put Jonah in the bathtub when the phone rang. He answered it and it turned out to be my friend Kim who was at the front door, but we couldn't hear her knocking. Rob goes to answer the door and Jonah comes into the bedroom (I was sitting in the rocking chair in their room) and starts talking to me when oopsy he starts peeing right there on the floor. Well, I start screaming "Rob come quick and bring a towel Jonah just..." Before I could finish what I was saying, Jonah screams "ROOOOOOOBBBBBBB, get a nakin (napkin)". I just started laughing so hard. I got up and handed Kim (who just walked in the door) Eli and went to get a towel.

All weekend for a little giggle I would say "Rob, get a napkin".

Wedding and more

I thought I'd show you a picture of Eli in his crawling stage. Although he isn't cruising yet I couldn't resist taking pictures of him.

Update: Eli sprouted 6 new teeth in less then 2 weeks. He now has a total of 8 teeth. He also wasn't breathing well so my parents took him to the doctor on Thursday and it turns out it was all of the stuffiness in his nose. He also had the beginning of an ear infection. He's doing much better now that he's been on antibiotics.

On Saturday we went to my cousin Cecylia's wedding. Unfortunately I got no good pictures of my cousin and her husband. Here are a few that came out OK.

From L to R: Rob, Candice, Ryan and Marty. (FYI: Marty is my older brother and Ryan is his boyfriend.)

Well, we are off to Mexico next week for a much needed family vacation. Stay tuned for pictures of the boys at the beach. Love to everyone.

A Cute Story

I thought I'd share a cute story:

Yesterday evening we were at my parents house and sitting at the table eating dinner. Jonah was a little restless and running around. We turned around and realized he was playing peek-a-boo with Eli, and was making Eli laugh hysterically. It was the cutest thing. He would hide behind the island in my parents kitchen and then jump out in front of Eli and everytime he did it, Eli would just laugh and laugh. Of course that made the rest of us laugh, and made for wonderful dinner entertainment. Rob recorded it on his cell phone so we can see it over and over. The next time he does it we'll try to take pictures.

Hope that puts a smile on your Monday.
