Eli @ 5 months

I had no original intention of taking this many photos of Eli but after about 4 months when I realized he had had his picture taken at least every week, I decided for the sake of his scrapbook to take portraits of him (studio or at home) every month for the first year. So these are ones I took at home for his five month portraits. We just took him to Target Saturday for his 6 month portraits and I'll be posting them later.

Baby models

I'm pretty sure Eli, Trip and Quinn could all be making money off their adorably cute faces but for now, their glamour shots will only hang on family members' walls. These are the pics we had taken at Target when the Scoggins' were in town. There are more of Quinn and Trip but I'll let Amy post those herself:)

Getting bigger

Nothing really new with us... I just loved this picture of Eli so I thought I would post it. I can't believe how big he is now. I love that he can sit up by himself but he is so active and independent that all he wants to do is sit, stand and walk around in his walker........... I miss the baby that would fall asleep in my arms.

Happy Half-Birthday to You!

On Monday Eli turned 6 months old. I can't believe how fast it goes. In honor of his birthday, I decided to chop off my hair (see pic above), and go the way of quick-and-easy. It was my Mom and my brother's birthday last week so we went to Chattanooga to see them. Eli loved spending time outside with his Uncle Burt and Aunt Christy and had his first ride in Daddy's Jeep.

Happy Mother's Day

We had a great Mother's Day weekend visiting with Chuck, Amy and the kids. Unfortunately, it has taken me quite a while to recover from my kidney stone surgery so sadly I couldn't play with my nephews as much as I would like. I didn't even feel like taking too many pictures but I did get a few. One morning I got Trip to participate in a quick picture with his brother and then got this one of Quinn and Eli together. Quinn, of course, is very photogenic as you can see in this other pic. Trip spent most of his time outside playing and mowing grass with his Grandpap. Luckily we got all three boys picture taken professionally while they were here so we do have the weekend documented properly:)

Warning: Naked Baby

Josh likes to joke that because of me, my mom and his mom Eli has probably had his picture made everyday of his life. It's hard to keep up the albums with all the pictures but then you catch moments like this which, to me, are priceless. Eli loves to be naked and because he laughs and smile so much when he's hard not to take his picture. The other is juust a picture I really liked.

At the Playground

Eli visited his first playground this weekend. He seemed relatively unimpressed but he did like to swing with Josh. We visited friends Stephen and Tamara Wood in Greenville for their daughter, Ella Grace's 2nd birthday party. Unfortunately I forgot my camera (I won't win Mom-of-the-year I guess) so I only got this picture from a friend.
