Happy to Sad in 30 Seconds

I’m finding that Eli’s current stage means he can go from happy to sad SUPER fast. He can be the most amiable, sweet little guy and then suddenly will turn into a “NO” machine – no matter what I say, ask, do, it always results in a sour look, sometimes major tears, and an emphatic “NO!”

I wouldn’t trade this age though – Ben and I can’t get over how much Eli is learning each day. This week he has started telling us full-blown STORIES – we don’t understand every single word, but he really focuses on sharing a whole string of ideas and we usually understand what he’s saying. Oh Eli, we love you!
