Eliel: 4 Months

Our Eliel is such a smiley baby.  He has the cutest dimple when he smiles.  He sprouted two teeth already a few weeks back, about a week apart.  That was a big surprise! He drools like none other.  If I forget to put a bib on the boy I have to change his shirt.

Lately he has been rolling over as soon as I put him down on his back and he's started some scooching.  Well, I'm not sure what he's doing, but as soon as I turn my back on him he seems to have moved a few feet somehow.  He coos and laughs and loves watching his big sister.

Mavry and Her Dolls

Mavry got this doll last Christmas from Mimi. (Mimi loves to give dolls to little girls.  I think we got one every Christmas growing up!)  In the past few months, Mavry has gotten really interested in having a doll or a bear to hold while around the house.  Sometimes she will have one come along in the car too. 

The dolls are generally naked because Mavry strips their clothes off and asks me over and over again to dress them.  She watches carefully as I do but can't quite get the clothes on herself yet.

Eliel: 3 Months

Eliel (pronounced EL ee el) turned three months old on Christmas Eve!  We were busy getting packed and getting the house ready for visitors to stay in while we were gone, but we did get a few quick pictures with Raggedy Andy. 

I dressed him in a sweater suit I got at a thrift store before Mavry was born.  It's so cute, but Colin told me I should change him into something else.  :)

He looks like he liked the outfit change too.  He is a smiley little guy who loves faces.  He has figured out how to turn over from front to back and back to front and enjoys his floor time for short periods.  He likes to swat at his mobiles but his floor time is a little more limited than Mavry's was because she is always interested in "helping" him turn over or thinks he needs his diaper pulled off or a blanket over his face, or whatever else. 

She's also quite interested in the camera when I'm taking pictures of her brother.
