Christmas 2008

We left Wed for West Virginia, but opened some gifts here in Knoxville before we left. Here are a few pics from both Knoxville and West Virginia. Eli's first Christmas!

Santa got Eli a stuffed Giraffe!

Eli got mommy some nice dangling earings. She was very impressed at his sense of fashion!

Eli got daddy a photo book for his wallet. That way he can show off his handsome face to everyone he meets.

Look at those almond eyes!

He's getting so big!

Eli rolled over for the first time this weekend! He had rolled over in the past...but it took a little shove from daddy :-). And just now he held his bottle by himself during his feeding. I'm just so amazed at how fast he's growing! Here are a couple pics...

Jess didn't really get the camera ready in time...he had just finished the bottle in this pic.

Here's an after feeding stare at the cat. He's very interested in the cat...not so much the dog. But that's ok, cause Leo isn't real interested in Eli right now. I'm sure that will change when Eli starts eating hard food and dropping it on the floor for him.

Christmas Pictures of Eli

We had Eli's Christmas pictures done yesterday. Here are a couple of our favorites...

This one is our collective favorite. He looks so grown up!

I don't understand why he's wearing shoes :-)

The best Christmas gift ever!

It looks like he's mischievous!

He did really good at the photo shoot. Smiled a lot and even pooped his pants :-). He took a VERY long nap when he got home. I think it wore him know...being cute and all takes a lot of energy.

Thanksgiving Pictures

Jessica and I were not able to make the Beckley trip this year. Jessica got the flu on Tues and Wednesday and was too weak to travel on Thanksgiving. So, we were blessed to have the Wombles invite us over for Thanksgiving at their house! Here are some pics...

Eli wore his "old man" outfit. He's so cute! We are decorating outside this weekend and hope to get our Christmas pictures on here real soon!
