Tama

Until I download all our Christmas photos from the other camera, I thought I would do a post on Elijah. He's growing so quickly, and is the funniest little guy. He's walking all over the place now. He prefers it to crawling, I think he's figured out it's faster to walk. He's been taking one or two steps for a few weeks now, but the day after Christmas he decided to walk across our front room. That's all it took.
He had his first hair cut a few weeks ago. The back was so long, and was starting to look like a mullet. It's strange for us to have a baby with STRAIGHT hair. All the other kiddies have curly hair. His straight hair is cute though, and it sticks up all the time. I try to gel/hairspray it down, but it always sticks back up. It's going to take a long time to train his hair. This pic shows the back after his haircut. These other photos are of him playing in his favorite spots around the house. He loves sitting in things . . .
He loves the drawer at the bottom of the stove. The only problem with that is that I think he burned his finger playing in it after the stove was turned off, and we thought it was cool.
He loves sitting in this cupboard. The boys like to shut him in it. He thinks its funny. Boys are weird.He did this the other night. He was getting so frustrated trying to fit in this pot. He eventually got both legs in and thought he was pretty smart. . .
We love you Elijah, and can't believe you are going to be 1 in just a couple of weeks!!

what a cutie!! Makes us smile so much looking at all the photos and reading about all his antics..but we are sad that we're missing so much of our grandkids over there too. Thank goodness for the internet and blogs in particular.
Love you guys!!

I love the haircut! I can't believe he's walking. Relief Society should be a ton of fun now. He's great entertainment for the rest of us though.

The trick with straight, cowlick-y hair is to get it cut REALLY short!! Like.. just shy of a buzz. It worked great with Ian's hair. I was worried it would only make it worse, but trust me... it was a good move.
Elijah is SO cute and such a boy. Why is it that boys LOVE to undo every cupboard in the house???

I love the pot trick. Ty still loves getting into, now it's just that much harder to fit in :)
