Busy Life of Eli

I know I have done a terrible job updating, but thanks to my hubby some of you get weekly updates from him.

Eli is doing wonderfully! He is growing perfectly and is in the 50th percentile for a two month old baby (his original due date). The biggest thing that is happening with him is our routine is being set. I talked with my wonderful friend Kelli Stephens (who is one of the best moms I know) about making Eli cry it out. I started the process a week ago with no help from my mom or husband ;)! They both gave in easily. I stuck with it however and Aaron jumped on board and now we are down to less than a minute of fussing before he falls asleep!!!

I cannot say enough what a great baby Eli is. Through nothing that Aaron or I have done, but totally because of him. He wakes up happy, spends the day happy, is happy in his car seat, happy on walks, and just happy! I could not be more proud of our little man.

He is now sleeping 8 hours between feedings and we are hoping to make it 10 starting this weekend. He is waking up at 5 AM and I feed him, but this weekend (when Aaron doesn't have to get up for work) I am going to try and let him go back to sleep until 7 AM. That would be incredible for mommy.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support for our little boy. Being a first time mom is a challenge, but he makes is a joy and all worth while.
