Eli’s fangs
Sammy likes to get his “sleepin’ on steps” time these days.
It’s very peaceful…until
More sleeping…at the zoo this time. Very random.
Real sleeping. At the breakfast table and it was hilarious. Eli actually woke up to eat a few bites of graham cracker, but never opened his eyes. Then right back to sleep. Thankfully Charlie had just gotten the video camera out and caught it on tape.

Blogging has obviously been pushed back in our priorities since Charlie got his new job a few months ago, but we’re still alive over here. Charlie’s job is going well. There have definitely been challenges, but he’s handling it all graciously and is enjoying restaurant work. Sammy, Eli, and I have been able to form new routines as Charlie’s schedule is irregular, so I’m thankful for that. It’s exciting to be here in this job as the first step toward (hopefully) realizing a dream. Even if it doesn’t work out as we’ve planned, it’s cool that we’re able to try for the dream instead of just letting life pass us by.
In other news, someone has walked away with the cord I need to upload our picture off of the camera and I haven’t made time to do a thorough search, so all I have for you today is old pictures. I wanted to give you a glimpse at some things our boys enjoy doing these days, so here they are:
Sammy’s been working on going to the potty for about a month. No news yet, but he likes to sit on it and read his potty book.
Sammy loves eating apples whole, and Eli enjoys standing on a little stool to look out our front or back windows. He talks to the squirrels, looks for Daddy, etc.
Playing dress up.
Charlie’s always trying to get a good pic of the three boys…pretty much always without success. I think it’s cool how much Sammy and Eli look alike in this picture.

We had a party on Friday to celebrate our little pirate turning one, and Eli had a blast. Charlie’s mom came over for dinner, presents, cookie decorating and trick-or-treating. After much debating and searching for a costume, Sammy dressed up as a fireman and Eli was a pirate (it was a hand-me-down but the cutest thing ever!). I would like to write more, but there’s a two year old on my lap “working” on the computer with a drill. Gotta run…
