Video of the Week: It's official. He's a toddler.

Emily came home from work the other day and finally accepted that our son was indeed a toddler. Her sad statement made me laugh as I had said goodbye to his babyhood a few weeks ago. If it throws tantrums like one, and is getting picky like one, it just might be a toddler.

The video this week is Mr. Eli's Opus to infant gross motor skills. We still need to learn how to jump and run. He will also improve all of these things and more, but I can't help but think that it will all come faster and be harder to celebrate. For now we celebrate his last steps as our baby and prepare for the coming whirlwind that is toddlerhood.

My how they grow up so fast

I was just telling a friend earlier today that we probably still have some baby proofing to do around the house.

A few minutes ago, I heard Eli cry.  I found him standing in the kitchen upset because the TEQUILA BOTTLE he had just taken off the shelf of the closet bumped his cheek on its way down.  He carried the bottle as he wandered around the kitchen and sort of muttered to himself for a while.  Then he screamed and cried when I took the bottle out of his hand.

I feel the same way sometimes, Buddy.
