Daddy and Eli

Eli's favorite person in the world is not Mom. Oh no. Not the person who runs after his little feet for 9 hours a day solo. Not the person who wiped poop from her favorite shirt yesterday and decided it was just better to throw it away. Not the person who has bruises on her arms and legs from a certain little spoon attack. Nope. Eli's favorite person, far and away, is Daddy.

Every day when Dan gets home Eli runs to the door and literally dances up and down waiting for Dan to walk in. When Dan enters, Eli throws his arms around him and puts his head on his shoulder. And there is a good reason for that. Dan is amazing with Eli. He takes him for walks, jumps with him on the tramp, and tends to scraped knees and fingers. Daddy is Legend.

That is what that looks upside down poopie cleaning...
Story time with Daddy.

Post-Napimus Maximus

When Eli wakes up from his nap he is usually in a pretty good mood. I was able to borrow a camera today and shot some pics of his post-naptime happiness. Man I love this kid.

That right there is classic Eli. Skeptical...and a little disturbed.

No Camera

Well, irony is delicious, and we've been eating it regularly around here. For instance, a few weeks ago Dan and I were on a walk and Eli started fussing in the stroller. I handed him my camera to play with and Dan said, "he'll break that". Scoffing, I told him I let Eli play with the camera all the time and nothing bad has every happened. Well, my son likes to make a liar of me and within two seconds he had inflicted permanent damage on my little Fiji. Or Fuji. My camera.

So I haven't been able to take pictures in a while. And, I really want a new camera. A nice camera. A shiny, super lovely, don't let the baby play with it sort of dealy. I've been looking into a few different models of the Cannon Rebel. Any thoughts on what a good higher/low end camera might be? I would like to find something in the $500-$700 range, new or used.
