Elijah is a pretty quirky kid!
it is a lot of fun to see his little personality shining through more and more each day.

here is just a small list of his latest oddities:

1. he has to flip the light switch on & off before we leave his room.
he also will make sure i turn the humidifier off before i even get him out of bed. 
or he will whine & cry.

2. he loves to brush my hair.

3. he loves any kind of “dip” with his food.

4. both side lamps need to be on at a time.
or he will whine & cry. 

5. he has very specific seating requirements when he drinks his morning bottle.

5. he doesn’t like long sleeves and needs his jacket taken off right away when we get home.

6. we have to go outside right away after we put his shoes on.
or he will whine & cry. 

7. he really likes a clean & orderly house.
and after making a big mess, he will go around and make sure i pick everything up right.

8. he can spot balloons & suckers miles away!!
seriously. causes tantrums at the story every time.

9. he will only eat the berries of Cap’n Crunch Berries.

10. he likes his little Vtech bike to sing in Spanish rather than English.
and will whine until we change it. 


we love that crazy kid!!!
he definitely makes life interesting.
every day there is something different that he picks up.

so far, i feel like this is my favorite part of being a mom:
watching him learn new things.
it really just makes me beam with pride when i see him start to fold his arms for prayer
or discover how magical the rocking chair is.

i just can’t get enough of him!!
