I’m thinking of titling every ‘Family Update’ post Family Matters. It will be way easier to just do the same thing over and over and over than to try and think up some different title. I’m just no good with titles. Anyhoo

I never say that in real life…

Eli had his ENT visit today. Everything looked good… No problems with the ears at all! So.. I’m guessing his sleep issues are teeth related.. and just plain ol‘ not being a good sleeper related. This too shall pass! On a slightly different note Eli had his 18 mth check up last week and everything there also looked good. He’s still tiny.. only 19 lbs 12 oz! Isn’t even big enough to be forward facing in his car seat at 18 mths.. not that we would turn him but that is a whole different post! He was 32 inches long, which is like the 47th percentile, perfectly average. His weight was not even on the charts though! The Dr isn’t concerned just yet but did advise me to be giving a daily vitamin and maybe trying Pediasure. We have tried it before but Eli just doesn’t like it. He’s not big on really sweet stuff (he does not get that from me!) and Pediasure is super sweet. So, I’m trying to add olive oil and butter to his foods to bump up his fat and calorie intake. Speaking of that sweet little guy, he got his 2nd hair cut today. It’s shorter than the first one so you can definitely tell a difference. I thought it was going to be a horrid experience but he actually loved it! I just buzzed it with the clippers on the longest setting. Here is my sweet baby with his new ‘do:

Luke went with us to the ENT. He did not want to go!! But once we bribed him.. er.. I mean gently persuaded him to go he was fine. Before I tell you about the persuasion, I have to tell you how excited he was to see the Ears Nose and Throat Poster hanging up in the exam room. He is completely obsessed with all things about the body. Particularly all things inside the body. The nurse was shocked at how interested in it he was. He just couldn’t stop talking about it! He asks me all the time to, “tell me a story about the body’. He is so curious! I just love it! So, the persuasion actually starts on Friday. My mom took me and Eli shopping to get the boys their Easter outfits. Can I just say that it is usually so hard to find dressy boys clothes that don’t cost a fortune?? ! So, we went to the mall and had no luck. Then the Hubs and Luke met us at Target. To my surprise, I was able to find both of their Easter outfits! There may be duplicates Easter Sunday because Target’s pretty popular and, like I said, it’s hard to shop dress clothes for boys. But oh well! Luke’s little suit came with a tie and he is SO excited about it! Actually, Sunday morning when we told him it was church day, he said grinning from ear to ear, “So, I get to wear my bow tie (it’s just a regular tie.. but he calls it a bow tie!)”. Yes, I had to break the news to him that his tie and suit is just for Easter! So, the persuasion was that we would go buy him a tie he could wear to church any time. And that’s just what we did! Tonight he modeled it for my mom and dad and said, “Do I look good or what?” Ha! I love him!

Well, I was going to upload a picture of him but blogger is being weird! I have lots of pictures to share of the projects we’ve been doing this past week though! Coming soon…
