from Eli’s perspective

[this post might not be funny/cute to anyone else but it’s something me and Adam laugh about and want to remember about our funny little guy :)]

the other day Elijah figured how to get to the camera app on Adam’s phone and decided to take pictures of everything!
he loves flashlights {or anything in light form} so when he figured out that if he pushed the camera button a big flash would appear it was immediately a hit that kept him busy for a few minutes.
Adam and i didn’t even realize what he was doing or taking pictures of until we looked at his photo album later and saw all the things Eli deemed picture worthy.

i know these pictures are obviously of nothing seemingly important to anyone else.
but for one reason or another, me and Adam love them.
we love that they each symbolize something that we will remember Elijah’s childhood by.

like his little chubby feet that you can see peeking out at the bottom of each picture.
and the way he crosses his legs on the couch.
and the way he has to explore every room every day.
and his little chubby BYU football picture on the desk in his room.
and the way he hangs by Adam and i as we do the dishes.

and {almost especially} his love for the vacuum!
that kid loves the vacuum even though they got off to a rough start.
every day he asks, “vacuum? vacuum?” and likes to point it out any vacuum he sees [at other people’s houses, on TV, he even thought the lawn mowers at Lowe’s were vacuums].
so the fact that he took a little picture of it from his small point of view just makes me happy.
such a sweet memory i’ll have of him for years to come!

the kid drives me nuts some days
{especially when he hasn’t slept through the night in the last couple months… ugh!!}
but i absolutely LOVE that chunky/funny/sweet/cute/silly little man of mine!!
and i’m so glad i have these little pictures to remember this fun stage in his life!

I love this! :) His cute little feet in pretty much every picture crack me up! Kids take the funniest pictures! I wonder what's going through their heada when they snap all these photos of seemingly random things!

I can see the chore of vacuuming the house is in his future! These pictures are really cute :)

Thank you for sharing your family!

Those pictures are ADORABLE. I love seeing their perspective. Those feet are precious. Maybe he'll grow up to be a photographer one day :)

That is so cute! Nowadays with digital cameras and phones taking pictures is something even little ones can do...I've given my camera to my little sisters for the day and they've come back with a couple hundred pictures to show fun!

That is too fun! My little niece is obsessed with taking phone pictures. Well, anything phone related. I think we created a monster.

That is funny. Isn't it great how clever kids are? Just wait until he figures out how to record himself, if he hasn't done so already, that is.
