Baby update, by Elijah

Eli has some big news, so I thought I'd let him update his friends and family himself.

Hey guys, Guess what?

I'm 7 lbs!

Of pure cuteness!!!

:little baby laughs:

Ok, I can't laugh yet, but I do make the sweetest baby faces. I don't smile at Mommies face, she's still kind of fuzzy, but I love to make these big cheesy grins whenever I hear her voice. I crossed over the big 7 lb barrier yesterday. I was so big, 3184 grams (7 lbs .2 oz) this morning. I promised Mommy that I wouldn't start pooping and loose the weight I've worked so hard to put on.
I must be a good boy because Mommy didn't have to take me to any doctors this week. My friend Barb came and we exercised on Wednesday morning. They are watching my head shape because I really favor my left side. Mommy thinks it's because I can see better out of my right eye, so I like to keep that one on top. Luckily I am so light and little, so my favoritism to the left hasn't affected my head shape too much. I just have some more exercises to add to my to do list.
I don't have much more to update. My pal Barb said I did great with my exercises. I found that if I just keep smiling at the ladies they don't make me work too hard. My charm goes a long way with the ladies :)

Dance of the two Christmas princesses

The girls had their Christmas dance recital and it was too much to describe with words. We captured the evening on video, so I will try and add a link later.
I don't think either of the girls had a concept of what their "recital" was going to be. Kaitlyn freaked out when she saw all of the parents, but she did get up and dance once I sat in the front row so she could watch me the whole time. Genny, well she did her "I'm too cute for this" routine. I laughed so hard at her performance to where I had tears running down my face. Both of the girls worked hard on their tap and ballet routines (ok, Kaitlyn may have practised a bit more) and did such a great job. We celebrated with a pancake dinner at IHOP afterwards.
