This has been a rough week for Eli. He got his first stomach bug (we think and are hoping that is all it is / was). On Tuesday morning (while dad was home sick from work) mom took Elliot to the grocery store where he vomitted all over the check out lane. He threw up a few more times when he got home. The doctor said to give him pedialyte and make sure he stayed hydrated. He was feeling a little better Wednesday then Thursday he wasn't quite himself and had bad diarrhea (just in time for Mommom to watch him). Hopefully it is just a bug and he'll be back to himself soon. We'll keep you posted.

First Family Vacation

From August 5-12th we went to Cape May Point for our first family vacation to the Shore. Mommom and Poppop (Shell's parents), Gram (Tim's mom), Maggie, Kate, Paul, John, Regina, Ethan and Kyle all spent the week with us. Elliot had a great time at the beach. He loved the water and really loved when the wind blew in his face and he tried to "drink" the wind. He had a fun time with his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. He wasn't a big fan of the Pack 'n Play and therefore didn't sleep too much. Mom and dad are now trying to get him back on a sleep schedule (not fun) but it was worth it. See pictures below.

How neat

A dragonfly landed on Elliot's finger and stayed for about a minute and a half. Dad just happened to have the camera out at that time. Amazingly, Elliot did not try and put it in his mouth!

When the water was finally warm enough, he loved being in the ocean.

Bath time

There wasn't a tub at the house so John and Elliot shared the pool during bath time.
