My Sweet Boys


Eli & Chase love to read books, especially with Daddy.

Watch Your Toes!!!

If there are any exposed toes in sight, Chase will bite them without warning. He especially likes big toes! : )

11 Months!

I can't believe it. Chase is 11 months old!! Only one more month and we will be celebrating his first year of life. And what a busy, beautiful year it has been!!! Chase took his first steps on his 11 month birthday...just 3 steps, then 2 steps. He has taken a few more since then, but he is not an official walker yet. He has developed a crazy eating schedule....he eats very little during the day....about 6 - 10 ounces of milk and 2 jars of baby food.....and he eats a ton of milk during the night....about 30 - 32 ounces! He has started waking up every 2 1/2 to 3 hours to eat during the night. Chase doesn't have any teeth yet and he is not a big fan of regular food yet...except crackers. Chase LOVES Ritz crackers! : ) Chase can sign "milk", "all done", and "more". Chase loves exploring and playing with Eli. Chase has also learned to climb the stairs in our house. Chase loves playing in the pool and any other water he can find! We love our sweet baby Chase!

Some CRAZY Hair!!

Great Friends!

Eli & Ryan are great friends!! They love playing together and are so much alike. : ) A couple of weeks ago, Ryan came over for a few days while his baby sister was in the hospital. Eli really enjoyed having Ryan here all day!!

Dishwasher Fun

The second Chase hears the dishwasher open, he rushes to it. He loves to play with it and it keeps him busy while I'm cleaning the kitchen or making food. : )

Park Time

We went to the park one afternoon a couple of weeks ago when the weather was not so hot. It was fun to see Chase playing. I can't wait until this fall...we'll be at the park every day!!

Eli Stories to Share

I have a couple of cute stories to share.....

Each Sunday after church, I ask Eli what he learned about in Sunday School. I am often very surprised at how much he remembers from the Bible story each week. It is always enough for Hunter and I to figure out what story was shared. This past Sunday, this is what Eli said when I asked about the story....

"There was a boy that went fishing and he had two fish, two avocados, and two chocolate milks. He went to this place and there were a WHOLE bunch of people there. He shared his fish and everybody got to eat something!" : )

Last week, Chase and Eli were playing and I heard Eli say this to Chase....

"Chase....Chase....listen to me.....this is very important.....listen to me. God loves you, Chase. God loves you and God heals sick people, Chase. Chase,!"
