E Update

Some major things to report:

  1. Last night Eli slept from 8:30 to 4:00AM!  That’s the majority of the night!
  2. He took a 2 hour nap today!  (For some of you this might not be a huge deal, but for Eli it is!  We found out last week that he has a slight reflux issue, which causes him to wake frequently and makes (long) naps almost impossible.  But, he went on some reflux medicine last week and it seems to be helping!)
  3. “I have hands!”  Sometime within the past several days Eli “found” his hands.  It’s pretty hilarious…something I’ve never witnessed before…because he’ll make a fist and simply stare at it for a long time.  It’s so funny…I’ll try and get a picture of it.
  4. Eli has the best smile ever!  He’s gotten to the point where he loves to smile, especially when Mom and Dad get all goofy in his face.  But making my boy smile is one of the greatest things in the world!  We have some good pictures that are still on the camera…I’ll post those later!
  5. “Happy Wake Time” is a glorious thing!  After Eli eats he’ll hangout, usually in his bouncy seat, and simply play.  We’ve deemed this time “happy wake time”.  It frees us to do all sorts of things, and we love it!

And now, some pictures!




And I can’t forget about Kels…

Question for you –
The program I use heavily to edit my photos has a sweet feature called “Presets”.  What this means is that I can make a ton of changes to a picture and then save all those changes as a “Preset”.  Then, when I want to apply the same effect to another photo, I can simply click that preset, instead of making all the individual changes all over again…yeah, awesome, I know!  And when you’re editing several hundred pictures at a time this becomes a HUGE time saver.  So, all that to say…here’s a new preset I have been playing with.  Any thoughts??  (And don’t you just love the picture?!?)




  1. Yeah – way to go Eli! So glad he is doing so well. Isn’t your baby’s smile the most precious gift? Can’t be described to someone who isn’t a parent. Love the pics and the ‘preset’.

  2. Awesome pics! Thanks for keeping us foreigners up-to-date! And the preset looks cool, although a little dark and ominous…

  3. Congrats on rolling over! I was not aware of “presets” but will definitely be looking into it. Like the idea for the new preset… but maybe back up the contrast a little. Just a suggestion… Congrats again!
