Proud Mommy!

Well, Daddy posted a picture. It made mommy want to post more, one just isn't enough.

This is at the end of June, Elijah on his toy pad - all the chicks dig it!

This was mid July - Elijah and his first pretzel (Papa E. gave it to him!)

4th of July - he was sleeping by the time the parade started. Not a morning person at all! He fits in just fine with his mommy and daddy.

And here is my little man the day he was born. He has grown so much already!

This was the day we brought him home.

I can't believe how fast his first 6 months have gone. I feel like I have missed so much, but cherish every moment with him at the same time. I have a different appreciation for working mothers then I ever did before. It is the hardest thing to leave your child with someone in the morning - and not be able to see them until dinner time. I still cry a lot on my way to work. I just pray that when Elijah is older, he will understand that every sacrifice we made was for him. Every hour of work was to provide for him (and hopefully his siblings too - someday, unless gas prices keep going up!). He is the most wonderful thing I have ever done in my life. It was worth the 3 year wait to finally meet him. I can't remember what life was like before he was here. Happy late 1/2 Birthday LiLi - Mommy loves you too!

I think he gets cuter every day! I can't believe that he is already 6 months old!
