Elijah got invited to a little friend’s birthday party at Kangaroo Zoo this week.
oh man, it was like that boy died and went to heaven!!
after some gentle forcing coaxing to get inside the first bounce house,
he LOVED it!!
he especially loved going up and down the big slides over and over and over….
and he got pretty good at climbing in and sliding down all by himself.
i admit, i got a little teary eyed thinking that my bouncing baby boy wasn’t so much a baby anymore but a big, crazy boy.

it was a lot of fun to play with him and watch him explore this new place and bounce all his energies out.
but the biggest highlight of the day?
E-rock can finally drink out of a straw!!!!

[he’s concentrating really hard]

yes he didn’t know how to before and so yes we had to document this great occasion.
seriously. he can open childproof dvd cases and pop the dvds out but couldn’t drink out of a straw??
crazy.

talk about him looking like a big boy… these pictures put me over the edge.

thank you Costas for an awesome party!!
seriously best day ever for a very active 2 year old!

sorry you are feeling sick. the throw-ups are the worst. very cute pictures of eli and congrads to eli for learning how to drink with a straw!

p.s. the only time camilla has thrown-up was after a stint at chuck-e-cheese in california. those kinds of places are crawling with yuck germs!

They are TOTALLY BFF's. He's just laughing at her joy of falling down. Not the actual falling down part!

Haha, Paul will be so tickled that the previous comment was seemingly posted by him...not!
