Sammy’s making a crazy face, but I liked seeing them standing next to each other.

It’s amazing how fast Eli’s growing these days! He’s crawling everywhere, climbing, and getting into anything he can find. He loves to follow Sammy and play with his toys (which doesn’t always go over well with Sammy). Eli has also learned to pull up which is fun, but that makes falling asleep difficult since he hasn’t learned how to sit down yet. He loves to stand at the end of his crib and peek over at Sammy in his big boy bed. We just started experimenting with a variety of finger foods and have found that Eli really enjoys eating! He gets very excited and babbles while he’s eating his graham cracker or whatever else it may be. It turns out that our second child is just as happy as the first and he adds a lot of laughter to our family.
Here are some pictures of Eli in the past week.

We headed to Ohio last weekend for my baby sister’s wedding. It was a beautiful event–Brittany and Jeff had been dating since high school so this day was a long time coming. They were both so excited and glowed as they interacted throughout the ceremony. Her dress was perfect. The reception was very nice. The cake was, of course, courtesy of my mom and was amazing. Brittany and Jeff left the reception in style…in a helicopter! Sammy’s still talking about the “hecopter”. What a day! Unfortunately, we totally forgot to bring our camera to any of the wedding festivities.
We finally remembered to break it out Sunday when the family came over to my parents’ house, but Jessica, Jason, Brittany and Jeff weren’t there. So here are some good pics of our fun minus some of our favorite people. (If anyone has any pics they’d like to send us, we’d love it.)

Here’s Sammy in his fishing gear which must be worn when you go fishing. It’s a very fun game that we play pretty regularly.

Eli’s getting into all kinds of fun now that he’s crawling. Here’s the most recent predicament he got himself into.
