Christmas Day

Christmas Morning - This morning you woke up at 6:45 thinking today was going to be like any other morning. Today Eli is special. Today we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. However, you are 2 years old - and a need for a saviour is a hard, impossible concept for you. Some day, my son.
During Christmas we also share presents to each other. Like any typical 2 year old American there was no lack of gifts under the tree. The first gift you opened may as well have been your last - once you saw the "power ranger" your Christmas dreams had been achieved! But wait - there was another power ranger to come (from big brother John). The clothes, kitchen toys, dvd - it could all go back. You got your power ranger. It's not about the amount of money you spend, the number of gifts you get - it's getting that special gift that makes all the difference. That's what the gift of Jesus is all about - that one special gift.

I love you Eli - Merry Christmas!

Fighting and Whinning

Eli - have I mentioned that you are two years old? You whine too much. Lately - there isn't much that makes you happy. I continually tell myself that it is not my job to make you happy and that you are just two and you will live to see three.
Your speech has really improved. It's amazing - almost daily you add a new word. The other day you said the road was bumpy. The lastest phase is "what's that?" too cute.
I can't wait till next week - Tuesday will be Christmas day - you and Sara are going to be extra crazy that day - but that's what's it about, eh?

Love you - (even though you whine too much!) Love, Mommy
