My Little Boy is Growing Up!

Today was Eli's last day as a 1 year old!! I can't believe that tomorrow he will be 2 years old! These last 2 years have gone so fast. I remember how excited I was the day I found out I was pregnant with him. I remember the sheer joy I felt when he was born. I remember the tears of joy I shed while singing Happy Birthday to him last year. I love this little boy so much! I can't wait to celebrate his 2nd Birthday tomorrow!

Jude's First Tooth!!

Jude is getting his first tooth! I noticed yesterday and today the he has really been wanting to chew on everything. I checked his mouth yesterday and thought maybe there was a little bump under the gums and then I checked again today there is a little tooth poking through on the bottom right side. This is right around the same age when Eli got his first tooth. Jude has been a little fussy at times today but they haven't been bothering him too much. I haven't noticed much drool, but he has been sticking his tongue out all day!

GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!

The Colts and the Saints are going to the Superbowl!!!!!!! We couldn't ask for a better games today!!! We had such a fun day watching football! Eli really gets into the games. He loves watching them throw, catch, kick, and of course score a touchdown. He just doesn't care which team it is. :-) Jude was decked out in his Colts clothes. Unfortunately Eli has out grown his Colts gear. I was going to put him in his new football shirt, but it was Green so I decided against it. :-)

My sweet lil Colts fan!!!!

What a catch!!!!

Playing catch with Daddy! Look at the determination on his face!

When we tell Eli to run for a touchdown he takes the football and runs into the kitchen with a big smile on his face, it is so cute!

When we yell touchdown Eli throws his hands into the air for a touchdown signal, unfortunately he wouldn't let me catch it with the camera tonight.

My Big Boys!!

I was holding Jude this morning while feeding Eli breakfast and Eli kept saying hold you hold you. So I got Eli out of his chair and put Jude in it. Of course while I put Jude in Eli's chair, Eli took over my chair! They both seemed to enjoy it!
This is the first time Jude has sat in the booster seat. Once we start feeding Jude baby food this will become his seat and Eli will move to a different booster seat. Eli is definately not ready to sit in a regular chair!!!!

Baby Jude is 5 Months Old!!!

My baby boy is 5 months old today! I love him so much and I can tell that he loves me and his Daddy. His face just lights up when we talk to him and he has the biggest smile, which makes for some great pictures. He is really starting to move more. He never stays in one place when on the floor. If he is on his back he turns in circles and scoots a little, and when he is on his tummy he rolls over. He has some cute baby talk and he loves to blow bubbles with his mommy. He is also starting to show some signs of being ready for food. He isn't acting like he is hungrier, but he is really starting to notice our food. If I am holding him while I eat he watches each bite go into my mouth. I think I will still try to wait until he is 6 months old since we are going to skip cereal and go straight to food, unless he shows he needs it sooner.

I was trying to take a picture of him sitting in this chair but as soon as I would get the camera up he would slide down with a big smile!

I know I take a lot of pictures, but I just love these boys so much and I want to capture it all. I would love to scrapbook my pictures eventually, but that isn't in the budget just yet.

Jude Officially Rolled Over!!!

Jude has started to tolerate tummy time more lately. Before he would just put his face in the floor and cry. He wouldn't even try to hold his head up. Christmas day was really the first time he started lifting his head up a decent amount, and since then it has only gotten better. Tonight I laid him on his tummy and within 2 seconds he rolled right over. He had the biggest smile on his face! Of course I ran and got the camera but he wouldn't do it again, lil stinker! Jude's first unofficial roll from back to tummy happened at 6 1/2 weeks old but nothing since then. Eli was never a big roller. He rolled from tummy to back once at 5 1/2 months and then a couple more times a month later, but once he could sit he didnt care about rolling.
We are having some issues with Jude's eye. He has had tear duct issues since he was born, but that is very normal and his Dr said that should clear up by 6 months. We noticed it was even better for awhile. Now it is acting up again and since it is always watering it is getting irritated. I don't want to put anything on it since it is so close to his eye. I am hoping it will clear up on its onw soon, if not we will have to call the Dr. At least it doesn't seem to be bothering him.
