Eli's Favorites at 8 Months

Eli loves anything that rattles/make noise
Eli LOVES this stuffed sheep and snuggles with it. The sheep's name is Bob and was a gift from my friend Judy.
Eli LOVE LOVE LOVES this Leapfrog table - he will lunge off of our laps when he sees it - and it's really helped his balance because stands at it for long periods of time (and doesn't really need our help anymore, though we usually sit close to him anyway). When he occasionally falls down, he just falls on his bum and wants to be back up at it right away. We think it's so cute! (though Ben and I have the songs stuck in our heads)
He loves this toy so much that it is worthy of a few pictures :) Notice Bob in the background.
The words/music can be in English or Spanish, so he will easily be bilingual :) Well, maybe not that easily, but I think it's a cool feature. All of his Leapfrog brand toys have English/Spanish options.
Here is the sweet boy in his church clothes today. I love seeing him dressed up!

nathan had that little leap frog table and it was a huge hit with marlee and nathan. Eli is so cute, I know i keep telling you that but really he is just such a doll! How did the sheep get the name bob?

His name is Bob because I brought the sheep in to primary one day for sharing time (talking about the lamb and the lion - so I had stuffed animals of each). One of the kids, Nick Merrill, LOVED this stuffed animal and was hugging and holding him the entire lesson. He came up with the name Bob, so we've called it that ever since... :)

I can't believe he's already 8 months old. I remember you prego right before you had him. He is such a doll! You better guard him against all the girls when he gets older!

Eli is so cute :-)! Addie got that little table for Christmas from Mike's parents and loves it. Ella loves it too actually so you'll probably get years of use out of it! His eyes look so pretty in the church outfit picture.

one example of how you're keeping me on my toes with matthew: as soon as i read this blog, i pulled out our own leapfrog table that we schlepped with us from the good old USA and of course Matthew LOVED it (understatement). he isn't standing up by himself yet, but his legs are getting super strong and he tries to pull back up every time he falls away from it. (another one: feeding him finger foods after you've tried them with eli! keep the updates coming, my little third appreciates them!)
