A few of my favorites...






All of these photos were taken on April 12th and Eli was 1 week old. My little sister, Carla, took all these gorgeous photos with her fancy-schmany Cannon SLR. Thanks sister! I cannot believe Eli is already 4 weeks old! He's growing like a weed and I'm trying to keep up with taking shots of him every now and then so I don't miss anything!

I crocheted the yellow hat before I knew I was having a boy, but he still likes it I think. The blue elf hat also evolved from me - thanks to this PDF I found on Etsy! I only had to start over about four times before I got the desired cone shape going. And the LOVELY quilt in the background is from my amazing "Sew New to Me" quilting bee girls - more on that quilt here. Eli loves his colorful quilt!

Tomorrow, if I can make it happen... Eli's nursery - finally! Photos are taken & edited... just gotta work up the posting.
Cheers!

I was going to say I love the photo of you and Eli. But then I thought, oh, I really like the one of him curled up on the quilt. Then I thought, but that one in the hat... They are all precious! Enjoy your baby boy while he's tiny, it doesn't last long enough.
