Birthday Boy!

somebody turned 1 yesterday! :)  I took videos of him eating cake and opening presents, but they are rather long... you will have to get them via Skype if you want to see them! :)

Happy birthday, Elijah! :)
...and congrats, Kelli and Dennis at surviving almost 2 years of being parents! =D

Elijah's Poem :)

Living with an almost-toddler can be interesting at times! Elijah has recently started throwning mini tantrums when he doesn't get something he wants and also has started protesting eating his veggies. I really didn't think that this stage started until later (he's not even 1 yet!), but now I know it starts WAY too early. I suppose each stage comes with fun/exciting parts and also hard/frustrating parts. I'm sure Danielle knows this too! So I got bored during lunch and wrote a poem from Elijah's perspective :):

Peas are good for squishing
And putting in my hair
Beans are good for throwing
Or hiding in my chair

"Eat all your yummy veggies"
Mommy likes to say
But I would so much rather
Play away the day
