Eli

First off thanks for all the input!!! I am going to go with #3 since it was EASILY the winner!!!!!


As for this little man....

Last Tuesday he decided it was time to talk.
Up until now it has been a word here and there but he mostly was just doing sign language. But Tuesday morning when I got him up the first thing he said was "breakfast". He'd never said that before.

Then after breakfast he said "I peed." And pulled on his diaper. I said do you want a new one. He said "yes".

So I gave him a new one. And then he just would say things all day here and there. We went to Utah and then since we've been back he's been talking more and more. His new one is "I poop." So I'll put him on the toilet.
And yes a couple of times he's done it right then. (actually the first time he did it, he looked in the toilet and said "GREAT JOB!" to himself. :)

So I guess next up is potty training.
Which I do not know how to do since my other kids were OLD when I did it.
They never showed signs like this at his age.
In fact Alden never really showed any signs ever.
He just finally consented to do it!

And just in case you were wondering, I didn't do a single thing to Eli's eyes in any of these pictures. They were just super blue that day. Cute hey? :)

It's about time I get back to crafting hey? I have a great project idea that I've already started one that I hopefully get time to finish tomorrow and share with you!

Love the first picture of Eli with the hat on.

Oh potty training. I am so scared to start. I have no idea what I am doing! Lucky Eli is showing interest on his own.

That boy has killer eyes! The ladies are going to love him!!! I love when they start talking! Hunter was not quite 2 1/2 when he started to show physical signs that he was ready. I hadn't put any thought into because he hadn't seemed interested in, but I put him in under to see how he would do and it worked. I am glad that I didn't over think it and just went with it!

Eli is adorable and his eyes are spectacular.

I poop..... you probably didn't want/need to know that hey?? hehe

Amy said...

Yep, great job Eli. He's a cutie.

That's great that Eli is showing signs of potty training. Good luck! I am still currently working on getting one to consent - I can't convince him it's a good idea!
And LOVE the baby blues!

He is such a gorgeous little boy! I LOVE it when kids start talking. My kids have all started pretty early (about 11 months) and gradually added to their vocabularies word by word, but my neice was more like Eli. She didn't say much at all for the longest time, and then all of the sudden she started speaking in sentences! So amazing!

COOL! love that he just started talking like that out of the blue, and love that he's communicating potty training stuff! Wish you lived close still, maybe some of it could rub off on Gabby :)

His eyes are FANTASTIC!!
