Post # 3 - Elliot

Elliot will be 7 months old in just a week! He is now sitting up on his own and just days away from full crawling. He amazes me with his strength! He is going to be a monkey, I can feel it coming. He will be the mover and shaker of the three. He finally had a shiny white tooth pop through this week! He is eating like a champ!There isn't much that he will turn his nose up at. Make fun of me if you will, but I have really gotten into making his baby food myself. I love that it's fresh and organic, not to mention super cheap and easy. Noah just doesn't know what he is missing out on! The whole sleeping through the night skill has yet to be mastered. He is currently still waking up twice a night to eat. The pediatrician says to keep feeding him when he wakes up for at least another month or so. I keep hoping he will turn that corner and start sleeping straight through soon!
We have found a wonderful daycare in Evansville for Elliot to stay while I am with Noah during the day at the feeding program. The search was not easy, especially not knowing the area, but we are so fortunate that it worked out this way. It's going to be so hard to leave him!! I am sure he will enjoy having friends to play with and with his dashing good looks, I am sure he will need to fight off the girls with a stick!
Thanks for checking in on us!
