I say this is going to be brief. However, my idea of brief is quite the understatement, so we will just see what happens.
Well, here we are...2011! Feels good. So much to come this year, including Eli's first birthday! Also to come this year? Eli's first steps, first words, and many other exciting changes and firsts to celebrate. I would love to tell you that we brought in the New Year with our little man overlooking fireworks, but he was where he needed to be, in bed. And, Keith and I were where we needed to be...out celebrating a great 2010 and looking forward to a great 2011.
Eli spent the night at Gammie's house...thank you mom for our night out! And, of course is my mom's true fashion, she made sure that we all had some black-eyed peas and cornbread, including Eli. Believe it or not, he was a fan! In addition to the peas and cornbread, he also partook in some chocolate chip cookies, which have quickly become his favorite food of choice.
What else is new in 2011? Well, it appears that Eli is in the process of interviewing some new and wonderful nannies. Due to some recent changes in our childcare, we are back in the nanny market. In addition to some nanny changes, I have a few trips kicking off the new year and one 5 night long trip in particular that is gonna keep me away from my lil' man. Oh, then Keith turns around and heads away for 4 nights....ugh. :( Sorry Eli! But, good news? We turn around in February and give our undivided attention!
So, on that note...plans for Eli's birthday are in full swing. No real updates, at this point, but plans are in the work and times are set.
Here are some recent pictures to enjoy! :)
