Yoga anyone?

If I stretch enough, I think they will reach my mouth (yes they do and they taste good!)


Stop with the peas already, I don't like them.


What is that thing with the bright light that keeps flashing im my face? Can I play with it?

I love my Gram

She's fun!

Someone on my level to play with.

Pleased to meet ya

Elliot met poppop pop for the first time.

He got his first taste of real food (not baby food) through his mesh feeder. He was eating frozen grapes and loved them.

Elliot's Baptism

Elliot was baptized on July 16th. His Godfather was Ed and his Godmother was Regina. Unfortunately, Regina could not be there (she was in the hospital after having a baby!!!) so my mom stood in as a witness. He was baptized at Martin Luther Chapel (where I work). He was excellent the whole time, didn't cry once during the whole service. Afterwards we went back to our house for a brunch. It was a very nice day.

Happy Boy

Listening to Pastor's sermon.

Hi Ed

Elliot and his Godfather.

New fashion statement

Those are sweet potatoes and yes, he did it to himself. They kind of make him look evil.

Sitting Pretty

He hasn't mastered it yet but we are working on it.

Best Buds Already

Elliot looks like a giant but I know soon (very soon) Kyle will be bigger. These two are going to be TROUBLE together.

Here he looks like Ethan.

6 Month Update

We just got back from Elliot's 6 month appointment. He is growing well. He now weighs 15 pounds, 12 ounces. He is 26 inches long. He is in the 25th percentile for weight and 20th for height. He got 5 shots and was not happy at all. He settled down pretty quickly though. He is now officially off the apnea monitor as of July 13th. Now we need to work on the Zantac. He was baptized yesterday and when I get some pictures I will post them. He can roll from front to back when he feels like it and last night he rolled from back to front (it freaked him out a little). We are now working on sitting up and hope that he can master it by the time we go to the shore.

A New Cousin is Born

Kyle John Callahan entered the world at 4:46 this morning. He was 5 pounds 12 ounces and 19.5 inches long. Mom and baby are doing well. We are extremely happy for Regina and Ethan. Elliot can't wait to get to the hospital to meet his new cousin.

Lake Trip

We went to Lake Garrison on Sunday to relax and get out of the house. We had a really good time. Elliot absolutely loved the water (after he had a nap). He probably would have stayed in all day but we were worried about sun burn. It was a fun day. Pictures are below.

This water tastes good, like cedar!


I think I like it.

Hanging with dad

All smiles

Just after waking up from a nap.

What are those?

Gram bought me a bubble machine and I thought they were fascinating.

Quick update

I forgot to tell everyone that Elliot's clogged tear duct has officially cleared up. I can't tell you the exact date but we noticed when giving him a bath for a few nights in a row that he had no gunk in his eye. It has been like that for about 2 weeks now. I guess we just got so used to it we didn't notice when it stopped being goopy. Also, hopefully by next week, he will be wireless! (He needs to get with the 21st century :-) I talked to the doctor last week about getting him off the monitor. He looked at his downloads and said the last episode was May 13th when he stopped breathing for 16 seconds. He said if he was fine until June 30th then he will take him off it. We were having phone line issues so I couldn't download the monitor so the company came out today to switch monitors. Hopefully by Monday we'll know. Keep your fingers crossed.

Happy 4th of July

Elliot had a good fireworks though because he was in bed by 7:00pm, maybe next year!
