Eli and I planted three tomato plants and some wildflowers. I thought Eli would enjoy watching the tomatos and flowers grow.....hopefully they will.....I'm usually not that great with plants! Eli enjoyed planting and watering the plants! (The paci is in his mouth to prevent him from eating the dirt!)
Today we went to Emily, Ashley, and Molly's first birthday party. We had so much fun and Eli was able to play with several of his friends. Happy Birthday! : )

Just as we were trying to figure out what shoes to wear with this outfit, Granny came over with a bag full of new clothes and these super cool shoes that matched Eli's outfit perfectly! Thanks, Granny...you came through for us AGAIN! : )

I didn't realize that toddlers could have tooth decay this early until I read a recent post on a yahoo! group from a mother of an 18 month old boy that had 3 teeth with decay. Yikes! Immediately after I saw the posting I went out and bought Eli a baby toothbrush and some toothpaste especially made for toddlers. Now brushing Eli's teeth and gums is a part of our morning and bedtime routine. He loves it - especially when Hunter or I brush our teeth at the same time. Who would have ever thought that brushing teeth would be fun! : )

Eli and I spent a couple of days at Granny's farm this week. Eli loved being outside and around the animals. He got to see horses, a cow, chickens, bunnies, and a frog. It was so funny to watch him in this environment - boys are just born traits....like playing in the dirt, throwing rocks, playing with frogs, chasing rolly-pollys, etc.

Today, Eli and I went to the Dallas Quilt Show with Granny (my Mom). Each year, Granny has a quilt in the show. This year she had a quilt that she made for Jessica (Eli's cousin). Her quilts are always so pretty!
As you can see, Eli was very impressed with the Quilt Show! : )

Hunter left for Denver this afternoon where he will start his new job tomorrow. His job is in Dallas, but his orientation is in Denver. Hunter is very excited about his new opportunity and Eli wished him good luck as he packed and got ready to go. Eli loves his Daddy!!!!
Hunter is starting a new job tomorrow so he had the day off today. We took Eli to Willowbend to play. He had so much fun. They have such a fun play area for kids....even kids Eli's age.
On Saturday, my Dad brought over a box of my old stuff from their garage so I had a little walk down memory lane that afternoon. I found one of my favorite babies....Baby Beans! I don't know if that was her official toy name, but that's what I called her because her body is full of something that feels like beans. I gave Baby Beans to Eli and he thought she was pretty cool....for a doll! : )

For several days, Eli was refusing all food - even crackers and Cherrios! Hunter and I were at a loss as to how to get him to eat. We tried everything...fruit, meat, cheese, cookies (I know, I know!), veggies...and he would not eat more than one or two bites. Thankfully, Eli is still breastfeeding so we knew that he was getting what he needed nutritionally, but we could not figure out the food thing. Then on Monday night, Hunter sat down with him and finally got him to eat. And when he did, Eli bit his finger! A NEW TOOTH! That's why he was not eating! Now that tooth #3 is pushing through, Eli is eating everything. His new favorite....blueberries! Here he his checking out a blueberry and a part of a cereal bar. He loves to study/disect his food before he eats it!
