My precious baby boy is ONE MONTH old today! I can hardly believe it's been that long! He's turning into quite the little man, and we're starting to get a fun glimpse into his personality. He's very curious and will just stare at things/people as if trying to figure them out! He's also getting feisty and will let you know when you're doing something he doesn't like. He's especially vocal with me when I'm working on keeping him awake at the breast, and he will let me know he did NOT like that cool washcloth on his feet!! He is finding his voice in grunts and coos, and they all make my heart melt. And sometimes the faces he makes make me laugh until I cry. Certainly no lack of expression with this child. He loves to be sung to, and that is possibly Mommy's favorite thing to do with him. He is also smiling more, and he put on some good shows for his Aunt Jessica, Uncle Matt, and Cousins Patriot and Azlan while they were here this weekend. Even with that, though, we STILL didn't get any excellent pictures. There were a couple pretty good ones, though, and I thank Aunt Jessica for being the paparazzi and working to try to get some good shots!Patriot & Azlan did a good job teaching him how to be incredibly cute:And Uncle Matt taught him all about the many merits of the i-Phone... (Matt is definitely a tech geek.)They took us out to eat Friday evening, and Elias was such a good boy to sleep the whole time!
We are so thankful they came for a visit - it was so much fun!!
