Oh, Eli

My Dear Eli,
What ever am I going to do with you?? You amaze me every day and make me wonder how I am going to do this for 15 more years! The other day when your kangaroo costume came (which you INSISTED on getting), you looked at it and said "I don't want that. I want to be a farmer.". Don't you realize that you are a farmer everyday??? Silly boy!
Today we were going to some garage sales and it was the city wide weekend, which means a special map in the local newspaper. You told me you needed to see the map and then after looking at the map for a few seconds, informed me that we need to head southwest. Now, I know that you hear Grampy and Dad using directional words, but do you know what it means??? I was too scared to see if you were pointing in the right direction....
The other day Ian grabbed your sippy cup and started to take a drink, you told him "No Ian, you're not allowed to drink that." When I asked why, you said "'cause it's coffee mom!"...just because I don't let you drink my coffee doesn't mean you can tell Ian you are drinking coffee!
I love you Eli Edward!


  1. This age is so frustrating and amazing all at the same time! Mine is very precocious. Sounds like Eli is the same!

  2. Such a sweet post! I love this age!
