The big kids fell in love with Eli the moment we told them he was going to be born. It was like he was always a part of our family, always meant to be. And now that he's here - we're complete. He fits right in, and we all still love every moment!
Even as they run by in play, the kids stop to say "Hi, Eli!!" almost every "run-by." ; )
Owen debated changing a diaper ... opted for evoking smiles instead!
Our silly man, Owen dressed E in his Seahawks hat last Sunday, the opening day of Seahawks Football 2010!
Kate has come to think of E has "My Eli," and she'll debate back and forth with Owen until he caves. Kate: He's MY Eli. Owen: No, he's OUR Eli. Kate: No, he's MY Eli. Owen: No, Kate, he's OUR FAMILY'S Eli. (and on and on until Owen says:) Ok, Kate. He's Eli.
Gotta love OUR four kids!
