Medical Exam (Saturday, Sept. 19)
Some tidbits about Elijah. He has been showing some of his personality. He loves to eat. With only 2 1/2 teeth he sometimes works on a piece of food for quite a while. He still takes a bottle several times a day. I tried a sippy cup today, but he didn't know what to do with it. He loves to be held and will put his arms up with his hand pointing down in a distinctive way(see picture). He loves to throw things. He's very curious and into everything. He's walking more and more every day. We took him to the pool, to Dozier-ize him. He's not a big fan. He didn't cry, even though I dunked him twice. He didn't cry, but he didn't smile either. He does cry in the bath, though. But, the tub is huge and cold. He sucks his thumb to go to sleep, which he hates to do. He will fight sleep with all his might. I knew that part was too easy with Abbey. I figured I hadn't paid my dues in that department. All in all, Elijah is pretty laid back and happy. We're enjoying playing and loving him! We can't wait to get home and share him with everyone!
