big party for your sister

Well.. Sara turned 6 years old! And that makes your mother very old, Eli. Tonight we are celebrating by having a party at the tundra lodge. They have have an indoor waterpark. Next year we will let you swim there.
Right now I don't really know what to write.. you spend most of your days trying to get into things you aren't supposed. ie. the bathroom, Sara's craft center, under my desk. Or you spend your day taste testing everything. You love nothing more then finding paper - tearing it up then trying to eat it. You sure keep me busy. I love you so much - even though we have nick-named you "Eli - the destroyer!"

time flies by

wow.. where have I been? You have grown so much. Most days seem the same as the day before but then before you know it you are in the next size clothing. You are now 9 months old. You are 19 lbs. Some say you are small - but I say you are perfect :) We now have the perfect nick name for you. You are Eli - the destoyer! You get into everything - and I mean everything. If I take you away from something you go right over to the next thing you can't touch. We are constantly moving things around to block areas you can't be near. You sure keep us on our toes.

The other day you cried when you got your finger stuck in the VCR (when you are older you can ask me what a VCR is - by the time you are 20 you will have no idea what it is!) You put your finger in - then the door closed and you couldn't get it out. You didn't like that. I came running to your rescue, hugged you and then everything was better. Then what did you do? you tried to do it again! - you little bum. You just laughed at me - testing to see if I was watching.

I will tell more "the destroyer" stories soon. Time for bed. Love you!!
