-Eli is pulling up and cruising more. He even has stood without holding on to anything- although once he realizes he's doing it, he falls.
-He has started crawling correctly most of the time. He goes back to his old ways occasionally.
-Eli loves smiling at strangers. Recently he has started burying his head into me when they smile back- like he's bashful. It is pretty sweet.
-This month he started giving momma kisses. Open-mouthed of course. I love it! He also fake coughs when we said "does Eli have a big cough?"
-He has had his first bottle of formula. Now he has one every night before he goes to bed. We haven't had any issues with this so far.
-Eli has started eating more table food- mostly steamed veggies, fruit and bread. I think he is starting to not like baby food as much because he likes to feed himself. Maybe he will be an independent little guy?
-Eli has gone to a few cold football games (Uncle Josh's team, Tabor Homecoming, & cousin Drew's flag football)
-The Lynch boys (and their parents) came to visit us and Eli had a great time playing with the boys. He loves his new turtle toy that they picked out for him.
-Eli had his first flying experience! We flew to Colorado on his 10 month birthday to visit Uncle Eric and Aunt Megan. After figuring out how long it would take us to make it to Colorado and how many work days that would include, we decided to fly to save a few days. Eli did really well on both flights and seemed to enjoy looking and smiling at all the people around him the most.
-Eli likes: playing in his room (he will for 20 minutes by himself sometimes), bath time with daddy, toys that sing, bouncing (sometimes while he's cruising), kisses, being tickled going on walks (when it's not windy), eating, crinkling paper, playing with cups and trying to drink out of them, smiling at strangers and just smiling in general, remotes, making noises with his tongue, shaking his head no (he doesn't know what he's saying he just likes feeling dizzy apparently , and making a cute scrunched face while breathing hard through his nose.
We have such a sweet boy and love him more and more everyday. How is that even possible?

|This is what most of the pictures I took looked like. I would sit him somewhere and then he would start crawling to me.|
In this video, Eli crawls correctly- this was one of the first days he tried it out.
