This past week Elijah has been discovering his voice, other than his cries- though he has been working on that one too. But the sweetest sound to me has been hearing him discover his “coos” and “ahhs.” It is just so precious. He is also developing a few facial expressions; John didn’t believe so I got it on video and hope to show it to him tonight.
This week so far, has been great. We have recovered from camp I believe, if you didn’t know Eli and I went to camp with our youth group last week, Pine Springs. I am so thankful that I got to go, and Eli did great traveling but it was challenging being away from home and taking care of him. The only thing left to do is wash our sleeping bags! So this week I have been concentrating on getting Eli’s routine down. Not so much the exact timing of everything but working on the routine of eat-wake-sleep more consistently for each cycle. He is not a very good napper at all in the late morning and early afternoon, and has been very fussy in the late night (12am). But he is a baby and we are finally giving him more consistency so I am hoping that will help him know what to expect and work on his sleeping.
Finally, a lot of people have said he has my nose and others have said he looks like John. I really thought he did have my nose and looked quite a bit like me. Then I pulled out our baby pictures, look for yourself and let me know what you think.
