I got a couple of cakes for a friend’s birthday yesterday and saw a couple of cakes shaped like a dog and hot dog, complete with an ant on it. Eli, I am sure, would love one of these cakes for his birthday, which is “comin’ up,” He keeps talking about getting a cake and presents. Huts and I have NO idea what to get him. He has everything he needs and then some. He loves to ride on his cars, so maybe we will get him that Harley-Davison tricycle Huts saw the other day. We tried a small bike, but Eli is not strong enough to push it. He loves his trike though! Rides it all of the time, up and down the sidewalk as fast as his little legs will take him. We cannot wait until he is big enough for a bike!

Lights Out

Eli got into this habit this weekend of rising early and tuckering out around 7 or 8 o’clock. He liked going to the ball game, but around 9, he gave up and fell asleep in his dad’s arms. We thought the fireworks were going to wake him up, but he slept right through them. The only time he stirred was when we got up to leave. He missed the whole show! Poor fella. He got up early on Monday as well but fell asleep while watching TV that afternoon. He slept for a few hours and went to bed at a reasonable time last night. Little does he know all of the fun he missed. Probably just as well as he went crazy with the sparklers! No doubt he would have burned himself or someone else.
