Two Cute Boys

I realized that I haven't posted many pictures of my boys lately! Time just flies by, and they change everyday. This morning I took these pictures during Eli's 'Tummy-Time' (he hates Tummy-Time, but it's good to strengthen his neck and back).The picture quality is terrible. But Eli is cute!

Nate wanted in on the action.


Updates on Eli:
-He's getting better at Tummy-Time
-He's a good eater, but is spitting up more
-He's patient and very, very calm.
-He is starting to smile at something...just not at any of us yet!
-He now weighs 9 pounds, 13 ounces (we made a trip to the doctor for congestion...he's okay now)
-He seems to recognize Nathan's voice
-He's a cuddler
Updates on Nathan:
-He's finally settled into having a little brother. Now, every time he walks past Eli, he softly touches his head, just to make sure he's okay. Sometimes he'll even kiss him!
-He's getting so big! He's 2 pounds away from using a booster-seat in the car! Hooray!
-He's testing out his independence. He wants to do things on his terms. If you want him to bathe, he doesn't want to; but when it's time to get out of the tub, he doesn't want that either. It's a lose/lose situation!
-He's ultra lovey with me right now. Ultra lovey.
-He's Daddy's new shadow.
-He really wants both of us home, all the time, no matter what.
-He's very tender-hearted, and gets his feelings hurt easily.
