Dear Eliot

Dear Eliot,

You are now six months and that personality is SHOWING ITSELF!  You are still so sweet and prefer not to fuss too much which we seriously thank you.  You've gotten so expressive and fun that your good ole Dad will come out of his office in the middle of the day just so that he can look at and hold you.  I can't even get him to do that! 

We are still waiting for your top teeth to come in as you show us signs of it but nothing as of yet.  You are LOVING some food.  Because of this fact, your mama is eager to start you on a lunch meal along with your breakfast and dinner.  So far you still love carrots, sweet potatoes, pears, apples, and bananas and absolutely hate squash and peas.  Green beans have been a hit which we're really excited about. 

You feel safest in your crib where you will roll all around but are more cautious on your play mat.  You will only roll once and then you're done!  You love your new exercauser and being upright to see everything and everybody.  The car seems to be more enjoyable for you also which makes running errands and going to LR a little better for everyone.  BTW you feel free to express your feelings and thoughts to us the most when you're in your car seat.

Currently you are sporting 6-9 month clothing and size 2 diapers.  You've outgrown your bathtub and we're about to say ADIOS to the bouncy seat as you just want to sit up and end up doing crunches in it the whole time.  You're really good at entertaining yourself especially when you have a magazine or any paper product for that matter. 
We love you so much and are enjoying you more and more each day.  You are a DELIGHT and we are getting in as many snuggles and kisses as possible as I keep thinking of the day that you will bat us away
