Story Time with Eli

Ya'll know Eli is a mess and pretty much says whatever comes to the tip of tongue.  I'm always asking Eric what we're going to do if our next baby isn't as entertaining.  Anyway, I wanted to share with you one of Eli's finer moments from the weekend.

We are potty training (which is about month's worth of posts in itself), and sometimes we have accidents.  By "we"  I mean Eli.  Eric and I are very much potty trained...just to clarify!  Back to the story, Saturday afternoon Eli had a little bout with bodily function number two. After cleaning him up, I decided to let him go commando for about 15 minutes until bath time.  While he waited, I gave him a candy cane to munch know a left over treat from Christmas that's still in date thanks to high dosses of perceptiveness.

Don't judge!

Anyway, while eating his little treat, Eli was hit with the sudden urge to perform bodily function number one.  Not wanting another accident I rushed his little bear-bottom to the bathroom.  After doing his business, Eli sees a little something on the upper inside portion of his leg.  Let's just say with was a little leftover treat from the candy cane.

He quickly pulls it off and holds it proudly for all to see while announcing..."Mom, look.  Santa's been here."

Haha...not quite son!

Of course Eric and I lose all composure and bust out laughing.  It's at this point that Eric informs me it's time to find a new Santa.  Oh yeah, and to start wearing pants!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
