Max at 8 months

Lamb "Graduation"

Elliot graduated from his Lamb class on May 28, 2009 and mom and dad were super proud of him. Out of his class of 12, he was the ONLY kid to sing all the songs. He did such a fantastic job. He will have the summer off and then return to school 3 days a week as a bunny, next year. He loved school and his teachers. Right now I'm not sure that he gets the fact that he won't be back to school for awhile and when he goes next year, he'll have new teachers. We'll cross that bridge when it comes.

Elliot's 3 year stats

I feel horrible that I never updated Elliot's 3 year stats and it is too late to go back and put them where they belong in the blog so I will put them here--sorry El.
At 3 he was 26.5 lbs and 36 inches tall. He is still 10% for weight and 25% for height. The doctor said he was doing great and looked great. He did not enjoy the shot that neither of us were expecting. Some time soon I am going to get his hearing checked...I'm not sure if it is just a kid thing, but he misunderstands a lot of words that I say and I don't want to wait until 4 to get it checked.

A trip down south

At the end of April, Elliot and I (plus Gram and Aunt Mag), got on a plane and flew to North Carolina to visit Kate, Paul, John and Jeannie. Elliot was fascinated by the whole air port/airplane experience and did a fantastic job. We had an absolute blast visiting and by the end he wanted to stay for a "long time" even though he missed daddy and Maxie. It was nice to spend so much time with just the two of us and also to see how he and John got along so well. We can't wait to do it all again in June but this time at the beach (with Daddy and Max!)
