Up We Go!
Eli is growing so fast now. Last week at the doctor he weighed just over 20 pounds. That is crazy. Walker didn't weigh that at a year. While is is bigger, he is far more cuddly. This makes him feel more like a baby to me that Walker did at 8 months.
At the same time he is reaching so many milestones, I know it won't be long before he is done with all the mommy holding. Yesterday he pulled up. He has been trying for a little while, which has resulted in many bumps on the head. He had success getting to his feet, first on Walker's little chair, then the window ledge and finally on the love seat. I am pretty sure he knew it was a big deal, because he did it for the rest of the day.
He has also found his voice. He will mamamamama and dadadada, but he will also scream. He just likes to hear himself make noises. It is adorable, until he and Walker start together and it gets to be a little too much. His latest trick is to scrunch up his nose and blow. He thinks it is the funniest thing going, although he refused to do it for Jason. Which is funny also, because I am able to get Jason to make the same face over and over trying to get Eli to imitate him.
