Eli loved being at St. George with Jack and the girls, plus all of their cousins. Eli keeps talking about going back to St. George to see Jack, Cali, Kaylin, and Brynn. I love how he pronounces their names.
6/7/08. Cousin McAli* Great to Be 8. Just after her Baptism in St. George. Eli loves his cousins. McAli loves babies and is so FUN to be around too!! Thanks for taking such good care of Baby Isaac! Melissa's girls are the best little mommies*
Eli fell asleep 10-15 minutes before we arrived at Lame, he was such a good trooper. He loved every minute of it. It was the most relaxing day we had had in a long time..... Just bouncing along down the tracks.. Isaac was great.. he was flirting with everyone on the train with his big smile.
On the train * This was such a fun day for all of us. Eli would not take off his back pack for the longest time. We went on an 18 mile trip to Lame from Santa Fe and back. It took an hour and a half or so to get there and then we ate an awesome BBQ meal and then rode the train back to Santa Fe. Eli has not forgotten this trip and keeps reminding us that we'll go another time on a train ride--- that's how he says he wants to do something again.
5/9/08. Isaac 5 months old. He got his two bottom teeth on 5/11-- I remember because he was exactly 5 months old plus it was on Mother's Day* Isaac likes chewing graham crackers. We put crumbled g-crackers in his oatmeal and that is a hit.
5/08 Eli's cute underwear bum. Sometimes Eli gets excited about wearing his train underwear but not enough to completely convert from diapers..... We are slowly...... getting there.... hopefully soon.--Ok we're not that close, but I'm hoping by his 3rd b-day-- he'll be ready to ditch the diapers.
Later that same day.....Thank goodness for benadryl... He is feeling much better and so am I.... Rashes are no fun. Since his first breakout... Isaac probably had to take benadryl 3 or 4 times... We thought he might be allergic to eggs, peanut butter, nuts... so we have been pretty careful about what we eat around him. We found some wonderful cream for his eczema (Vanicream) because Isaac used to dig, dig, dig, and make his head bleed--esp around forhead and top of his head....and nothing seemed gentle enough to not further aggravate the ezcema. Isaac has always been so strong... I would have to hold his arm down while he would nurse otherwise he used to keep digging at his head... Thank goodness his head is pretty much all clear and he doesn't scratch his head as much anymore-- he is now 7 months old and seems to be doing fine! We have not been as careful w/food around him and he seems to be fine.. so hopefully it was just a rough patch he went through for a couple of months.
