Everyday's a photo shoot

Since Eli started walking, it's mostly been too cold to be outside, but since the weather was so nice this weekend, Josh and I spent some time with Eli outside in the yard to practice his walking skills. Poor child can't enjoy any of his time without Mom turning it into a photo shoot... I'm always afraid I will miss the perfect picture... anyway, here are some of the pics.

Weekend in North Carolina

This last weekend we took a tript to North Carolina to visit Josh's parents and we had a great time. On Sunday night we went on a tour of the Biltmore House in Asheville. I was a little stressed on how Eli would do through the tour but he was great. I was very proud.. Here are a few picks from the weekend.

One of Ei's tricks when you ask him to show you his toungue:)

Here we are outside the Biltmore. Unfortunately, they wouldn't let you takes pictures inside and strangely the front of the house isn't lit up after dark.

We also go to see Josh's baby cousin Gwen for the first time. She is 3 months old and slept through our whole visit:)

It's about time

I feel horrible that it has taken me this long to post Eli's birthday pics. . I had great intentions on posting one of his pics from the hospital on his birthday morning but he woke up with a 102 fever that day and was sick the entire Thanksgiving weekend so I am just now getting to it.

On Wednesday November 22, 2005 all 9 pound, 6 ounces of Elijah Finley Puckett was born.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we had a birthday party at our house. We had so much family there, I felt so blessed and actually teared up when we sang happy birthday. I can't believe my baby is one year old.

Here is Eli's Itsy Bitsy Spider cake, that I am proud to say, I made myself. (Eli had his own cupcake to eat)

The classic cake-in-the-face

Here is Eli with all his toys(including a tricycle from The Scoggins:)

Following Quinn's footsteps

Last week, in honor of Eli's birthday, we went to a salon to get his haircut and boy was it cut. It looks great but I was not prepared for how much was coming off. But it is so much easier to fix now and he looks great. Here are the pics

Before the haircut

During...he actually only cried this one time...when she cut around his ears.

Eli's 15 minutes

I decided to post the page of the newspaper with Eli's picture from Sunday so those who don't live here can see what it looked like too. He was a pretty good model although he wouldn't really look at the books for very long. At home, his books will entertain him for an hour but I guess in the studio he had alot more interesting stuff to get into so he had a hard time concentrating:)

Favorite pic

So this morning, Eli got to be in a photo shoot for the paper for a story on children's books. I had to take the pictures so after the shoot, I decided to take advatage of the studio and take some pics of my own. This is one of Eli and his "lovey," which he never lets go of practically and it turned out to be maybe my favorite picture of Eli so far:)

BTW: For those of you in Gwinnett, Eli will be on the front of the life & leisure section of Sunday's Gwinnett Daily Post.

Hunka, Hunka Burning Love

Eli as Elvis Presley!

When Eli was little when we would brush his hair, Josh and I used to think he had Elvis hair so that was his Halloween costume...Plus, they have the same initials, which we put on the suit. Most of all, I was very proud that I made the costume myself. Even though I have a very crafty Mom.

I've never been crazy about Halloween but this year it was so much fun. First, on Saturday my brother and sister-in-law threw a party at their house and we had a great time.

My dad has the nickname "Queenie" for Christy so that's what she was dressed as.

My brother was a CSI guy :complete with the shirt:

Then, on Tuesday we got to trick or treat with our friends Will and Kelley Hammock and their children Bryn(AKA Snow White) and Dylan(Clown) through their neighborhood

Cousin visit

Two weekends ago, we had a great visit with the Scoggins and I took so many pictures that I have been putting off posting them because of the time it would take. So, I am only posting a few, but here's a link to my shutterfly account (copy and paste into a search engine. I tried a link but it wouldn't work) if you want to see them all:)

We had a great time and loved every minute we got to spend with Trip and Quinn.

Pumpkin patch

Last weekend, we finally found a little time to go to the pumpkin patch. Luckily the Methodist church in downtown Buford was having one so we could walk to it and back home. Josh, Becky and I took Quinn and Eli with us (Trip was napping). Here are the pics. Eli hates the baby backpack but Quinn loved being carried by his uncle Josh.

10-month photos

These are pictures I took for Eli's 10-month photos. We did the outside thing because I am running out of places for these monthly portraits. More posts later this week from the awesome weekend we had:)

Eli walking 1

He's been taking little steps for about a month and everyone keeps asking if he is walking. I have been saying no because it was very unstable and, to be honest, I am trying to keep him little as long as possible. Anyway, last week he became very independent and now I say he is officially walking:)

The Playground

This weekend while Josh was in New Jersey at a family wedding, Eli and I traveled to Chattanooga for my grandmother's 80th birthday party. When I got ready to post some pictures, I realized while I was busy documenting Eli's first time playing at the playground I forgot to actually take pictures of my grandmother or her party. Oh well, the rest of the family has photos thankfully. These are of Eli playing at the park, which is kinda cool because this is the park I played on as a kid, also:)

9-month photos

I have had these photos for a while and most of the family has seen them, but I didn't have any other posts so I thought I would put these up. I had these done at JCPenney and Eli did really well. I was very happy with them. This is only four of the many poses:) Please ignore if the color looks funky. My scanner at work is not very good and I didn't have time to fix it.

Duluth Fall Festival

Last weekend, Gram and Grandpap came to visit and we all went to the Duluth Fall Festival on Saturday. The weather is so awesome and we had a nice time. Here are some pics from our weekend.
