I cried out of excitement and your Dad took a funny picture. | On December 22, 2009 we found out that you were a boy! | Your Daddy | Why I chose to name you Elijah Michael... Elijah: I always want you to be a man who stands for God in the midst of this dark world. Elijah the prophet stood amidst all the false prophets of his day and proclaimed "You alone are God of Israel." Michael: My dad is the ultimate example of a man who stands for Christ no matter what. Love, Dada

3: Elijah- The first time I felt you move, I called your Daddy and Auntie Ashlyn right away! I loved feeling you kick and wiggle inside my tummy. By the time you were ready to be born, you could kick so hard, sometimes my ribs would hurt. You were ready to get movin'! | Starting to Grow! | Starting to Grow!

13: Your fist sound was "Ah-Goo". When you were nursing you would put your hand flat against your chest and move it side to side. People said you looked like both your mommy and daddy. I think you have daddy's eyes. We could tell you liked having your diaper changed, being naked, and taking a bath. You would always laugh when we would sing "Shake Your Booty" and danced you around. We couldn't help laughing when you discovered your hands or when you peed in the bath! Your favorite games were peek-a-boo and tickle tickle tickle. | All About You!

14: You and Daddy

15: You and Mommy

16: For your first Thanksgiving, we celebrated with both families. With all those people around you, you just stared. Once you felt settled in and more comfortable, you would start to smile. You were especially timid around any man other than your daddy. Everyone always wanted to hold you and play with you, but you felt the most comfortable with mommy and daddy. | First Holidays

This is also when you got your first couple teeth, and when you first reached for mama! You started crawling on January 29, 2011 which made you just over 8 months old.

23: Bath Time! | Daddy would always give you a bath before bed. He also loved to pour a stream of water on your pickle to make you pee.

24: On The Go | You didn't love riding in your car seat... especially on long trips. But we took you to San Diego anyway, You loved to play in the sand and visit with Grandma LaLa and Auntie and Uncle. | We would do a lot of fun things while we were in Arizona too. We would visit GiGi and Aunt Rikki a lot since they lived so close. We also would go to the mall, the park and the zoo.

Your favorite stuffed animal was your blue teddy bear that stayed in your crib. Your favorite song to hear was "Itsy Bitsy Spider" | Some other things you enjoyed doing were: crawling around the house investigating everything! At 12 months you loved to throw anything or pull everything off the coffee table. You would also crawl down the hallway to try and get away from us. You constantly tried to eat Charlie's food. You loved to bang your toys on the coffee table to make noise, or ride in the car Aunt Rikki got you.
