Eli's favorite words: truck, mama, eah, no, yay, up, move please, thank you, welcome, paci, ifford, there it is, hi.
Today, we met with Elijah's teacher at the greatest school on Earth, The Little Light House. I always leave so energized and encouraged about Elijah's future. I'm always excited to know that he will develop and grow in their delicate care.
I found Eli sitting in his crib today...twice. Just cracks me up. You see, Elijah's arms haven't really allowed him the pleasure of helping himself between the laying and sitting positions. The brilliant people at the Little Light House started the process of teaching him to use things around him to get up and down. Folks, he has mastered it. Yesterday, he actually hid from me under the ottoman. I honestly lost him for about the longest 30 seconds of my entire life. I knew I had left him sitting in the living room floor. When his silence became noticeable I walked back into the living room...no Eli. It ran through my head...did I put him in his crib...not in the crib..."Sophia, where is Eli?"..."I don't know"...faint breathing heard..."Eli"..."yay"..."Oh, Eli, are you hiding from your mama under there"..."yay." That was the end of that, but geez.
Special prayers for special grandma Bobbie. She's been battling a nasty illness. We love you!
