Pearly White

Today was Eli's second ever dental visit, and I couldn't have been more proud.  When we went six months ago, he was so scared that he would only let them count his teeth.  This time he jumped right up in the chair without a second thought.  

They of course checked those "pearly whites" which where healthy, by the way.  He even let them clean and floss!  Impressive if I do say so myself.  Our only problem was he didn't understand "Mr. Slurpy."  This resulted in him constantly swallowing the spit...yuck!  Oh yeah, it also meant no fluoride rinse.  

We also discovered that he is has an extremely small surprises there!  Ha!  Now we have to downsize to an infant toothbrush.  He's not a huge fan, but I must say that it's better than worrying about jabbing his gum.

After Eli's exam, Eric and I had to see the dentist too.  The original plan was for him to go between us so that  there would always be an adult to supervise   Of course, I was late getting there which ruined the plan.  This left Eli unattended while we were both in the chair.  

Overall, he did great!  However, when we made it home we discovered that he had snatched a few toys and hidden them in his bag...ha!  That boy is a sneaky one!

After the appointment we went back to my work which is always a treat for Eli.  Then we made a trip to Wal-Mart and had lunch with daddy.  Now, we're settling down for a quiet weekend at home.

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
