I have a few funny pictures to show today. I got tickled by more than normal today. Normally I would break this up over a few days, but let's just face it: I may only have time right now.
At first glance, you may think, why is she showing me a picture of Silje's messy room? Well, this is what I found when I went to go wake Silje up from her nap. She was not in her bed. She was not under her bed. She was not in the closet. After giving up looking, I started calling out her name.
And out popped her head. She was fast asleep, and it actually took her a minute to wake up, so I had a chance to grab my camera.
My hat goes off to my father in law, Richard, who put up that very sturdy shelf with pegs for his daughter when they lived in this house. And also to Sally Swendsrud, who crocheted that beautiful baby blanket for Silje when she is born that she has now turned into a hammock. Thank you for making this moment possible. Isn't Silje so creative? I could go on and on.
Maybe this is where she got the idea. Parden the tired mommy with no make up, and just focus on the adorable baby. Here's the ring sling I made awhile back. Elias just LOVES being in it as often as I let him.
He likes to listen to secrets.
Here's Silje holding Elias. They're both having fun.
David holding Elias. David plays with Elias over a big chunk of time every day. He likes to talk to Elias about race cars, and how they go FAST!
And when Daddy gets home, he loves to play with Elias' cheeks.
Elias' new favorite thing besides sticking his tongue out all the time is stuffed animals, which are available in abundance in our house.
and his new rattle. Such a spoiled little baby.
