Eli is Two

Eli fell asleep on the couch like this two days ago. I have often thought the laws of physics are bent for toddlers.

Eli loves David, but only calls him Bebe (baby). He enjoying giving him bottles, and won't let me help him. He even burps David when he's finished, and occasionally looks to see if David has spit up.

I know everyone thinks their kids are cute, but man, these boys steal my heart.

Eli loves Ba-peens (airplanes) and always points to the sky when he hears one fly over.

He was pretty enamored with his new "phone"

My cupcakes didn't really rise, but the sure looked awesome.

Tommy led us in singing, but had to cycle through the other boys names before getting to Eli. It took Eli a couple tries, but he blew out his candle.

Ke-Ke! (cookie) is what he calls all sweets.

When I wouldn't give him another, he drug over a stool to come get his own.

It's hard to believe Thanksgiving has already come and gone. We chose not to travel this year but to stay home and make days worth of food. I made dressing from scratch for the first time, and I am a convert. It was so much better than the boxed stuff. I used this recipe here and put it into 4 smaller pans, two of which I froze. I also made rolls from scratch, but didn't feel like they got a good rise, probably because it was so cold when we made them. Tommy had no complaints though.

Come Christians, Join to Sing

Come Christians, Join to Sing

Come, Christians, join to sing 
Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King;
Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice,
Before His throne rejoice;
Praise is His gracious choice.
Alleluia! Amen!

Come, lift your hearts on high,
Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky;
Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend;
To us He'll condescend;
His love shall never end.
Alleluia! Amen!

Praise yet our Christ again,
Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain;
Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven's blissful shore,
His goodness we'll adore,
Singing forevermore,
"Alleluia! Amen!"

David Joseph

Since I didn't want to go an entire year without blogging: Here are pictures from David's birth!!

David Joseph, born Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 12:14pm. He weighed 8lbs 7ozs and was 20.5 inches long. This was my shortest labor yet, at 22 hours.

Eli: 5-7 months

Time sure flies doesn't it? This poor little blog isn't getting much attention these days because this sweet boy gets it instead.

Eli is army crawling and pushes up on his hands and tip-toes. He is absolutely in love with his brother Daniel, and I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual. Eli loves to eat baby food and drink from his sippy cup. Most days he takes 2-3 naps and sleeps 10-12 hours at night, usually waking once to nurse. 

I have several quilty things to show, including a couple recently finished quilts, and one top and a few older finishes that still have not made it to the blog. This week is packed with errands to get us ready for our vacation to Sea World this weekend to celebrate Daniel's 5th birthday!
