We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

You will notice in the pictures below elijah's first thanksgiving dinner, he ate all of that, seriously. Really he just ate his peas and a little taste of yams. And yes Elijah is crawling and for probably about a month insists on standing almost all of the time. He has attempted climbing a few times, successfully once on top of a little lego table that my parents have at their place.
The picture of the three of us was going to be part of a Christmas card that none of you will be getting after all. So just pretend this is your card! There may be a new years card coming but no promises.

Lijah update:
29 inches, about 20-23 pounds.
He sits like a pro, and gets up on all fours in the blink of an eye. He has been on all fours for like three weeks now, so really any day he will be crawling. Part of me is so excited for him to start crawling, but the other part of me knows that as soon as he does I will want him to sit still.
He loves towers, chewing on anything and everything, swinging, reading books, dancing, funny noises, bath time and chasing people. He loves to eat; bananas, peas, and green beans have been on the menu this week. I think I'll whip up some pears and apples soon and maybe some more squash or sweet potatoes again for next week. For those mommas out there who make their own babyfood i've read in two different places to stay away from making carrots, beets, (and a few other odd veggies like turnips or something...) because they can contain a high level of nitrates which can cause anemia in infants, baby food that is pre-made is fine as they test for nitrate levels. just thought I'd give you the heads up.
Well, I hope you all are enjoying some apples and warm toasty drinks as fall has officially arrived. Enjoy this super cute video.

first meal of "solids"

This was about a week ago and he is now eating like a champ three times a day after he nurses. In about a week we will start him on some good ol' veggies.
