An Eli post
These are an old series of pictures that Adam took which I thought most clearly captured Eli's attitude toward...well, mostly just his attitude. I love them because you can just tell exactly what kind of kid he is. They confirm my suspicions that if he knew how to flip me off every time I go to take a picture, he would.
I had also forgotten to post Eli's first, and very hilarious, sentence. Adam recently became concerned that Eli's favorite stuffed animal, a worn out dog that must be washed weekly because my son insists on sucking and chewing on its eyes and face, was a hazard. Specifically, he worried that Eli would crack a tooth (to say nothing of choking) whilst committing this disgusting practice every time he went to bed. So I was compelled to cut the eyes of the beloved dog out. I gave it to him for his nap, eagerly anticipating his reaction to the change. He moved to grab the eyes and direct them to his mouth, at which point his jaw dropped and he exclaimed, "Uh oh! Help! No eyes!"
And then, last night he went to the bathroom on the toilet for the first time. I was clapping for him and telling him how cool that was and he looked up at us and nodded saying, "Nice." I think that is a result of all of the basketball we have been watching; anytime anyone does something cool, and the crowd cheers, a "nice" usually follows from either my or Adam's mouth.
And speaking of basketball and funny comments, I will go ahead and tell you how funny Adam is too: While watching the last two rounds of the semifinals and coveting the shoulders of those by the name of Dwight Howard and Lebron James, Adam confessed that if it were possible to transplant the arms and shoulders of either Dwight Howard or Karl Malone, he would gladly live with a white body and black arms. Go Magic!
