That night Mike and I decided to get rid of all the boxes we had from the baby furniture and shower gifts. So we loaded up both of our cars and drove to a recycling bin. We knew they were calling for storms that night so we wanted to hurry. While we were there the wind really picked up. I was getting nervous because I hate storms so we really hurried. Right as we finished it started to rain. On the five minute drive home this horrible storm broke out. It was raining so hard I could barely see. I was stopped at a stoplight and a big billboard sign came rolling through the intersection. I was completely freaked out. I was thinking there was going to be a tornado and I was in my car!! We both made it home safely and the storm actually moved through pretty quickly. The cable was out on the tv so we decided to watch a movie. We had had Even Almighty for a few weeks but never watched it. So we decided to watch it. This is significant because Mike and I watched Bruce Almighty the first time we ever hung out together!
After the movie I went to bed and I told Mike not to stay up too late because we had the Ultrasound in the morning. I think he rolled into bed about 3:00 that next morning and 2 hours later at 5:00 I woke him up to let him know my water broke and it was going to be a very special day!!!!! 11 1/2 hours later at 4:35 PM on Wednesday January 30th, 2008 I was holding my precious baby boy!

Eli has been walking more and more lately. He is so confident in his walking abilities, a little too confident. He is constantly falling. I guess that is just part of the process of learning to walk. He loves it though. He always has the biggest smile on his face!!
Eli was trying to pick up a toy out of a container and leaned on it and it came up and hit him in the eye. This picture was right after it happened so it looks worse than it actually is. This happened yesterday and I can't even see it today.
We got almost 11 inches of snow last night. Reggie and Maggie weren't too fond of it! They did their buisness and ran right back in. They only walk on the path they had already made. The first time they went out this morning I had to push them!
Maggie covered in snow!

This is Eli watching Yo Gabba Gabba. Usually I will move him as soon as he pulls up to the TV, but this was too cute and I needed a picture.
Eli loves to help me with laundry. This usually involves him taking the folded clothes out of the laundry basket. Not much of a help.
This isn't the best picture, but he is standing by himself clapping. He loves to clap!
Eli's favorite thing to do is to look at books. He loves his books. He stands up next to the book crate and pulls half of them out and then sits down to look at them. His favorite right now is a book about colors that his daddy bought for him

Eli learned a new trick today, and it isn't a good one. He can now climb the stairs, and he is fast too. In a blink of an eye he is at the stairs. We have always tried to keep him away from the stairs but before it wasn't too big of deal because he couldn't climb them. I guess now we need to bring out the baby gate.

This video is of Eli taking some steps at Aunt Jackie's new apartment!!!
Eli is taking more and more steps!! He is still very wobbly and can't go more than 4 or 5 steps without needing help. He has even been taking off on his own. He will pull himself up to a toy or the couch and then turn and try to walk to me. It is amazing. He hasn't even been crawling for a month (it will be a month tomorrow). Just 2 days ago he was fine with crawling and had no desire to walk on his own. My baby is growing up so fast.
