Haircut Oops

Details about hair cut at the bottom...

Eli turned 19 months last week. He is becoming more of a toddler and less and less baby. Makes mommy sad. He likes to do whatever other people are doing- he will repeat almost anything he hears and likes to imitate whatever mom and dad are doing. He has started crossing his arms a lot and continues to like to look at books and play outside.

Such a boy- covered in sand.

Mommy might have teared up with the first swipe of the clippers. This isn't his first hair cut, but it was the first big one and mommy had no intentions to cut it this short. He looks bald because his hair is so light. I can't quite decide if it makes him look older or younger because in some ways a buzz cut makes him look older, but he looks like a baby because he's bald. It'll grow, right? Oh, yeah and he's sitting on the potty. We're just getting acquainted.


18 month stats

Eli had his 18 month check a few weeks ago, and I completely forgot to put up his stats. He is growing and got a good report from Dr. Rosales. 

Height: 32 1/2 inches, 60th percentile (75 at 14 months)
Weight: 25 lbs, 40th percentile (25 at 14 months)

So I guess he's evening out. 

Eli's favorite things are cars/trucks, dogs and kitties, splashing, playing in dirt or rocks and trampoline jumping.

What We've Been Up To

 I've been a bit absent from the blog-o-sphere the last few months and our house is the main culprit. We are really enjoying it, but there have been a few cosmetic things that I decided needed to be done, and it is taking more time than I thought it would (duh, I should have known). I've painted walls and trim in 2 bedrooms, 2 hallways/stairways, and living room. Also, our pretty boring summer has filled up fast with wonderful things that take time, but we wouldn't have it any other way. (Disclaimer, the lighting is not very good in the photos, so if you want to see what it really looks like you'll just have to come visit!!!)

There's still things to do, but you get the idea.
