Grammy and Pop Come to Visit

Last weekend, Grammy and Pop drove in to spend some time with us. We were so excited to have them! They didn't get in until late Friday night so Eli didn't get to see them until the next morning. He and I were up before anyone (I can't wait until he is old enough to know that Saturdays are for sleeping in) and he woke up in a GREAT mood. I was able to capture some sweet pictures of my little man before everyone woke up.

Mr. Cheerful in the morning :)

Josh woke up next to go golfing with some friends and not long after he left Grammy and Pop woke up. Eli was so excited to see them! He's going to quickly figure out that when Grammy and Pop come for a visit, they bring goodies because he's gotten something every time they've ever visited. This time they brought him some cute trucks and cars. He really liked playing with them and it made me realize that all too soon, my house is going to be littered with toy cars and trucks...I wouldn't have it any other way!

Working on his toy with Pop

We played around in the house for a little while and then made plans to go to Wal-Mart. I know, it's sad. We live in such a small town that we actually make plans and look forward to going to Wal-Mart. Grammy and Pop wanted to get Eli a couple more cars and trucks and they wanted to get him a train that he could ride on around the house. Pop got on the computer to try to find the toy that they wanted and Eli decided to "help". I would like to point one several thing. Eli is NOT allowed on our Mac. He is really interested in the computer since he sees Josh and I on it a lot, but he's not allowed to touch it at all. Grammy and Pop, however, didn't seem to mind Eli banging around on theirs though and he had a GREAT time doing it as you'll see from the video. He got a little overzealous and even popped several of the keys off...OOPS! Pop was able to fix them, thank goodness. To be on the safe side though, we're keeping all computers out of Eli's reach for a long time!

Watching how the light comes on and goes off...so cute!

Pressing every single button!

Surfin' the net

Eli's handiwork....keep your computers away from his little hands :)

"I'm sorry I broke your computer, Pop."



Eli LOVES his Pop!

Eli LOVES his Grammy!

Grammy, Eli, Pop

The riding toy Eli is on in the above picture---does it also turn into a walker? If so, that's almost identical to the one that took Drew from toddling around furniture to zooming around the house! Eli might be the same way!

Yes, it does and he can walk it from room to room. I've been meaning to get him doing it on video.

Brody loves to "work" on his walker toy like that, too...the other day he was examining the wheels to make sure they were properly aligned. =) however, he is not much into using it other than to sit and play with--thank goodness it was borrowed so i didn't have to spend the money on an unused toy--we have enough of those around here. i am still so amazed at how BLOND eli's hair is getting! i noticed in the past, but i always thought it was the lighting in the pictures, or even the flash. guess not. it's so cute regardless of whether it's brown or blond! just can't get over how quickly it changed (especially since it never fell out!). cool!
