This post is mainly for me, a little sentimental....My little man is getting so big, and growing so fast, now he is in his 3-6 month clothes, thus he had to get new pj's! We went to old navy and found some really cute ones and I loved how he looked in them, so just had to take some pics.
Cutie in his red, truck pj's
Ryan calls these his camo-dinosaur pj's

3 Months Old

7/22/09 Eli is 3 months old! He is so alert all the time, always curious, and trying to see what is going on around him! He has also found his hands and fingers and likes them in his mouth, which is good whenever his paci falls out!
I love those big smiles!

Big Russ and Susan

A couple of weeks ago our friends Russell and Susan came to Texas to visit. We don't get to see them very often bc. they moved to Tennessee :( so it was great to get together. Fortunately our sweet friends, the Myers live very close and have a new baby, so we all got together to visit at their house for dinner. It was so great to catch up with everyone, and we hope they come back again soon! We love and miss ya'll!!
The boys (of coarse my husband had to act silly!)

The girls
Amanda and I.....I can't remember Eli even being that tiny! Sweet Camryn is about a month younger than E. We look forward to many play dates together!
Russ and Susan holding the babies, doesn't it just look natural for them..hint, hint! ;)

4th of July

This was Eli's first 4th of July. We spent this 4th out at Ryan's parents house with lots of family, friends, and fun on the lake! I wanted to make sure Eli was in the "spirit" of the occasion, so I got him this cute t-shirt from Target and dressed him up, along with his "boat" shoes! Isn't he sooooo cute, now I'm not biased or anything... :)
Lake Fun!!
This is Ryan's niece and nephew. They had so much fun swimming and tubing! We can't wait until Eli is big enough to run around with them! After a long day on the lake we all loaded up and went to watch the fireworks. I tried to get some good pics, but I think I still need to master my nighttime picture taking skills.

And last but not least, one of my favorite pics, our family at the fireworks....

BIG baby in the tub!

Here are some recent pics of Eli at bath time. He has gotten sooooo chunky, growing extra chins and rolls everywhere! He is almost 3 months old now and getting big. He loves his baths, splashing in the water and looking at himself in the mirror.
A few pics to compare just how small he was, and how much he has grown!
Happy baby!

A dip in the pool!

Father's day weekend we went over to my parents house to celebrate with my dad. After dinner we decided to go swimming, this was Eli's first time in the pool. I am not sure if he liked it or not, but we had a good time and got some cute pics. Check out my little man in his trunks and sunglasses!
Too cute!!
I love this sweet face

Anniversary Weekend

This year Ryan and I celebrated our 4th year of marriage. We wanted to get away and have some quality time together, but since we have a 2 month old we didn't want too go to far away. We dropped E off at Gi Gi and Papa's and had a great weekend in Cowtown!
First stop was Joe T's for some awesome Mexican food....
While walking around downtown, we stopped in for some dessert! Yummy!!
Sorry Ryan, I know you hate this picture, but you just looked like you were enjoying
this way too much! :)
Saturday we went to the Ft. Worth Zoo, it was very humid and hot, but most of the animals
were out and showing off.
Saturday night we hung out in the Stockyards. Ryan took me to dinner at the H3 Ranch, then we walked around a bit and did some window shopping.

mmmmmm.....a great steak!
Ryan trying on hats, what a cutie!
A pic from 4 years ago, June 12, 2005. A day that most people will remember bc. we got married outside in the middle of the summer, maybe we were crazy?!?!?! This is the day that I will remember as marrying the love of my life, and look forward to spending many more years together! I love you Ryan!
