Being Sick is Yucky!

Okay, so I've been missing for the past few days. I've had a not-fun-I-wish-I-was-able-to-sleep-without-drugs-sore-throat-frog-sounding-voice-stuffy-nose-headache kind of cold. It hasn't been fun.

And the worst part is that I am one of those people that NEVER gets sick, so when I do, it really makes me stop what I'm doing and just exist. Wipes me out. I suppose I should take it easy every once in a while so that my body doesn't make me.
Anyways, so that's why I've been MIA. Not sure if anyone even noticed, but I like to pretend. :)

Here are some fun pictures of Eli that I've taken recently. He doesn't like the camera so much anymore, I think because he's so used to it that it's more of an annoyance for him than a fascination. He does like to push the button to make the flash go, though. That's how I get him to smile sometimes, I let him do the flash and then snap a quick one of him smiling. You have to be sneaky with toddlers, apparently! :)

I seriously love this picture. Eli and I were playing the other day and he let me put this bucket on his head. It was too funny. He even stood in his potty with the bucket on his head. Pure genius if you ask me. There are some of you out there who may not be interested in seeing a picture of Eli with a bucket on his head. To those of you I say, "Too bad, my blog!" :)

This one is so cute, although I think he looks a little like a girl. Poor kid. I promise, we got him a haircut 2 days later. :)

He's trying to push the button on my camera to make the flash. He's not really interested in being the subject -- he wants to be the photographer. That's my boy!

Don't even know what this one is all about. Maybe he was striking a pose for his audition to become America's Next Top Baby. You must connect with the camera! Be free but fierce! Controlled yet crazy! And don't forget to be fierce!

We'll see where that career takes us... :)

I don't think that Eli looks like a girl in that photo...I actually think that is the cutest pic I've ever seen of him! He's growing up too fast. Guess we'll just have to come to Cali in the spring to see him!

I agree with Emily, he's a little man, and such a little sweetheart man, I can't wait to see y'all again!
