1 Month!

I can not believe he is 1 month old! He is getting to be such a big boy and his looks are changing every day! So excited for (some of) you to meet him this week! He can't wait!

We Love You All!

Have I forgotten how to cook?

I am not sure I will be able to whip up a meal the way I used to. Why you may ask? Well, the reason is this! Ben and I have been abundantly blessed with family who stays at our house and makes delicious meals for us, and good friends who graciously bring us meals. By the time all my freezer meals that I had prepared ahead of time are gone, Eli will be almost a month and a half old. Don't even say it because I know what you are thinking..."Amanda, you are SO lucky"! And yes, I am, but I am NOT taking it for granted!

This last week was spent with Grandpa Tom and Grandma Pam! The week flew by and they had so much fun loving on Eli, and we had fun enjoying them loving on Eli!:) Thank you for EVERYTHING Tom and Pam! Eli misses all your kisses already!

4 weeks in 2 days! Wowser, does time go fast!

We love you all!!!!

At least he is only 0 :)

It seems like Eli is growing bigger by the second. And it makes me sad:( Ben tries to remind me that it is good he is growing...I don't know if I agree yet! Then my sis-in-law, Megan, reminded me I needed to take his "monthly" picture. When I got ready to do that I realized I had to put the number 0 on his onesie. I guess that made me feel better, knowing he is still "0 months"! :) I just love the stage he is at! I love snuggling with him, I love his round little body just rolling into a ball when I burp him on my shoulder, and there is so much more I love! But I also know that there will be that much, and more I love at all his next stages, I just don't want it to go so fast.

Please ignore the wrinkles on the blanket. An iron will be used next time! I am planning on using the same blanket for each monthly picture so we can see his growth!

Just a few more pics to peek at of Sweet Eli!Check out his CRAZY hair in the top picture! :)

We love you and miss you all! Eli is so excited to meet all of you...he sends you all BIG hugs!

Eli is still doing wonderful...and we still love him to pieces!:) I know that will never change! I LOVE being at home with him every day and Ben LOVES coming home to him every day!

He has a "big" dr. appt today. Pray for him...and me, I think I will struggle more than he does! It is amazing how your heart changes when you become a mom! God knows what He is doing!

I haven't taken new pictures in a couple days and I truly think he has grown within those days...even my mom thought that when we were skyping. I will try to take some and blog again in a couple days!

We love you and miss you all! It is so hard to not be able to share Eli with all of you! He can't wait to meet all of you!
