Eli is 3!

3 seems so old when I think about my firstborn. 3 years ago we were just starting our parenting journey with our sweet boy. He is now a active, sweet, sometimes naughty, smart, silly, stinky (he is a boy, right?), funny, entertaining, lovable little boy. We LOVE him and want him to slow down just a little bit. Here are some things that we just don't want to forget about our big boy.

38" (60th percentile)
32.4# (55th percentile)

-He says wonder instead of when. Example: Mom, remember wonder we were reading about George last night and he said "Surprise" to the man in the lellow hat? 

-When he says Rudolph he puts the emphasis on the second syllable. "Mommy, I want to watch rudOLPH."
-He says where instead of what. Example: Mom, where's that smell?! 

-Loves watching t.v. (Curious George, Thomas & Friends, Chuggington, Dinosaur Train)
This face...he makes it a lot. Especially when strangers want to smile at him or talk to him.

-Love to read. He has "The Big Truck Show" memorized and much of his Curious George books. 

-Likes to ask where Daddy is when he knows he's at work.

-Likes to play "hike hike" and "fight" with daddy. Really it's just an excuse to wrestle on the floor.

-Is good at puzzles.

-Has started to sing more...but not much for pitch yet. :)

-Loves his Life Group friends, Grace, and his cousins very much. 

-When he sees something tall he says, "Oh, that's tall just like my papa is tall."

-Loves his brother, but loved him a lot more when he couldn't get into his stuff. (We kinda saw this coming.)

He loves his Daddy!
-Likes to ask if mom and dad are poopy...he thinks it is SO funny.

-Is very ticklish.

-Says "that's not fair" but doesn't really know what it means. He generally uses it when he doesn't want to do something.

Our big boy
-He's full of excuses! I can't because...I'm too small...I'm too big...it's too hard 'a work...my belly hurts...

-Says "This is the best _______ I've never seen before."

-Is getting pretty good at stalling at bedtime...snack, milk, read, read Jesus, pray, sing, sing, sing...
This face...

-Has a CRAZY good memory. 

-When I say "I love you, Eli" he usually responds with "You do?"

-When Micah cries in the car Eli will say "It's okay baby, we're almost home. Someone will make you happy." 

 Thank you Lord, for entrusting this little life to us. May we always point him to his LORD and Maker and always remember that he is Yours.
