The Fourth of July!

Here are some pics from our Fourth of July festivities. All were taken by my dear dad. I'm glad he's around to snap the pictures because it seems like every time I want to take a picture I've either forgotten the camera or it's out of batteries.

Having fun with Cousin Katelyn

Yeah, that's me, holding my ears. Someone was lighting off one of those cursed shrill whistling fireworks
Eli has more important things to do than get his picture taken.

Too Much Parade

Houston We Have Crawling!

After weeks of carpet face-plants and lots of rolling, Eli is now a full-fledged crawler. It's been a fun, and very tiring few days. He kinda scoots along and drags his right leg and propels himself with his left. It's pretty cute. Now comes the fun part; baby proofing the house. I've already discovered that the dog food is going to be a major target. And he loved electrical cords and wires (gee...I wonder where he gets that) so I have been chasing him around pulling plugs out of his mouth and putting all electronics up and out of reach. I think I'm not going to need to go running any more in the morning what will all these calories I'll be burning following after my foot loose and fancy free baby boy!
