1 month home

We've been home a month now. Hard to believe. It feels like a lot longer. This past Thursday, Eli had his first visit to Grandmama's house! He did so well during the 20 minute car ride. Once we were there, he played, ate his snack, and had a wonderful time. After we got home, he was very fussy though, and he was whiny and clingy all day yesterday. The pattern seems to be that he does fine during the outing, but after, he is upset. This seems to be how he deals with stress. We were encouraged, because he did not melt down like he would have a month ago.

We'll be spending a quiet Memorial Day weekend at home.

His 1st birthday is Friday, and he got his first birthday presents in the mail! My aunt and uncle sent a cute pair of pajamas (which he needed), 2 adorable rompers, and a book. (Thanks N & J!!!) It's hard to believe he's going to be one. I still think of him as being a baby!


Feeding himself!



1st time to see a ceiling fan, and he was just fascinated by it!

Happy Birthday little man!
That's good that he doesn't melt down while he's out. Hope he starts handling the after effects better.

Happy Belated Birthday!! He will always be your baby even when he is 64 and that is okay.
