My Failed Attempt at 6-Month Pictures

I tried to do our own 6-month pictures for Elias. It didn't go horribly but I wouldn't say it went well. These are the best shots (or at least funniest ones) of the bunch."Rocking" out.
This is actually part of a 3-part series. Elias tastes the ball.I don't think it tastes very good. Bleck!
Strike that: it tastes horrible!!If the lighting were better, this would be one of my favorite pictures. They are all genuinely smiling. Awesome!

And just for good measure, here's a video of Elias hiccuping and jumping in his jumper. Enjoy!

Mother's Day

Mother's Day was fun (at times) this year. I had a wonderful breakfast of Trix and some beautiful flowers to look at.
Here is a closer look at the flowers the kids picked for me. I know I shouldn't encourage them to pick flowers from campus but they were so proud of themselves (and the flowers were so pretty). It was super sweet.
The rest of the day was a mixed bag. We had a wonderful picnic on campus. We picked up some Chipotle and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. The kids did fairly well and the meal was enjoyable to all. The rest of the day was tempered by tantrums and fits. I think I'll choose to just remember the peace and comfort of the picnic and block all the rest out. See, blocked. Perfect day.

Elias is getting around lately. It's slow but he can get where he wants to go. The original intent of this video was to illustrate that fact. Instead I ended up with another "Wild Kingdom" video, much like the ones I got for both Asher and Addilyn. Observe.

Here's one of Asher from January of 2010.

And this last one is of Addilyn from January of 2008.
