Week 47 December 13th-19th

Hello everyone.  Look at what I'm doing...kneeling with balance.

Mommy never takes pictures of me when I'm in this mood, but this time she did.  People say that I'm mellow.  People who actually know me well know that I can be, but not always.  Mommy thought it was funny.  Not nice, Mommy.  Not nice at all.

Grandma and Grandpa left for Hong Kong on Wednesday night, so I got to spend two days with Daddy while he was "working" from home.  On Thursday, I was soo excited he was home that I didn't take my nap until 1p (I usually go down around 10a), and I only slept for one hour.  Daddy was very tired and a little stressed because he couldn't work at all.  On Friday, I was much better, and Mommy came back by 2p.

 My parents are attempting to cut my hair.  It IS getting long, and we still have people second guessing my gender.  I AM A BOY!  Daddy started out with the back.  He doesn't think it's straight.

 Mommy did better with one side.

But she couldn't manage to cut both sides...she got sad because it made me look like a big boy.  She was surprised that she was getting upset about it.  It's ok, Mommy.  As a result, here I am with one side done and the other side not cut.  We'll see if Mommy can rally and cut the other side...she really likes the curl so she's very unwilling to cut it off.  I hope I don't have to sport this "do" for a long time.

On Friday afternoon I got to see my buddy Alex.  I missed his birthday last week so we went over to give him his gift.  But here I am playing with his toys.  Alex didn't play with me much.  He's so mobile he'd rather climb the stairs and I still can't keep up with him yet. He's great at sharing though.

I'm getting mobile too.  Here I am in the kitchen now. What's in here?

Time to get cabinet locks.

Whew!  Mommy  managed to cut the other side of my hair on Saturday.  It's not as even as the other side, but it'll do.  I DO look like a big boy here.

Just in time too, to meet up with all the other babies on Sunday. 

Here I am with Lucas and Ryan.

Then Meagan joined us.  The four of us have never been in one place at the same time.  Can you get everyone to look at the cameras at the same time?  I don't think so.

With so many cameras going off, we're hoping one of the pictures turn out well. 

Here I am with Uncle Daryl.  This is the first time we've met.  He lives in New York now.

And finally, a shot with all the daddies.  You can't see Ryan though...he's sleeping.  And I think Lucas is trying to get MY sock!  That's my job!

I was trying to post a video, but it was taking too long and Mommy didn't want to stay up anymore (past 1am!) to do this.  So maybe we'll post it next time.  Until next week!


  1. Elliot, nice haircut!! You look like such a big boy. Can you believe you're almost 1?!?! Whoops, better not tell your mommy that your uncle said that. She'll probably be upset with me. Ok, we'll see you this week. Alyssa misses you.

  2. Heheh, I think you can still pass for a girl even with the haircut. It's cuz of those big eyes and chubby cheeks!

  3. Yeah, cutting your hair was an awakening! (that you are growing up so fast!) That's why your Mommy cried! But with each passing day there is something new to adore and cherish about you, so you will keep her smiling for a long time to come!

  4. It's hard for ME to see how quick you're growing since I haven't even MET you yet :( so I can only imagine how hard it is for your mommy! I have to say, I'm glad she got around to cutting the other side though. It looked a little goofy with only once side cut, haha!

    I'm also sad that we miss all the get togethers now. Sigh, February can't come fast enough!
