Monday, April 20

I have been doing a lot of media relations for my client FirstCall in the wake of the devastating tornadoes outside of Nashville. We went to Murfreesboro for a TV interview and this is just one of the many houses we saw.

Elias and I ran A LOT of errands this weekend and he was just tuckered out Sunday night. He fell asleep in my arms. I just had to set him on the couch to take a few pictures of him sleeping. His hand on the side of his head cracks me up.

Saturday, April 18

Elias was up early Saturday morning and didn't want to go back to sleep. Finally, I just brought him in our bed and we both fell asleep. Matthew left for a three day trip to Ohio that morning and snapped this before he left.

Sharon came to Nashville for a visit! She came over for dinner Friday night and enjoyed getting to meet Elias. We really loved spending time with her.

This is a very normal scene from Elias's play area in our living room! He can now push toys around, pick them up, and make a big mess.

Tuesday, April 14

Whenever Elias is in the car, he holds on to the side of the carseat. Here he fell asleep on his way home from day care and he is still holding the side of the seat!

Daddy took us to the airport early Monday morning. We waited as long as we could outside security so he could hold him and kiss him lots before we left.

Sunday, April 12

We went to visit Nana at the nursing home on Easter Sunday. Though her memory is rapidly declining, she still really enjoyed Elias. It was a special memory for me.

Saturday, April 11

We celebrated Easter with the Schims on Saturday instead of Easter Sunday. Elias got a little stranger anxiety at first, but he warmed up. (the last small pic of Elias and me is actually going to go on the journaling card for Friday)

Friday, April 10

Today Elias and I flew to WI for Easter weekend. Papa loved holding the boy in just his diaper before his bath. He and Nana love him to pieces.

Elias got so scared of the Easter bunny once he saw its face!

Wednesday, April 8

Tonight we went to see Augusten Burroughs - one of Matthew's favorite authors. He was soooooo funny. We waited in line for an hour, but it was so worth it. Matthew tried not to smile too big - I think he did a good job.

Tuesday, April 7

After Elias finishes eating, he likes to play with the spoon. He is getting to be such a big boy!

Monday, April 6

Elias has learned to clap! He thinks it is so much fun and gets a big grin every time he does it.

Sunday, April 5

Elias started running a fever yesterday. It would break, he would be fine, and then it would come back. These photos were taken when he was feeling pretty good.

Saturday, April 4

Today was a full-day! We went to see the bunnies at Phillips Toy Mart and dressed up Elias for his latest holiday photo. Isn't he a hunny bunny?

Friday, April 3

Tonight Nana was at my mom's house, so we talked on the computer. She thought it was so neat to see Elias. He showed off in his bouncer.

Thursday, April 2

Tonight Elias was so tired. He fell asleep in my arms, and then Matthew held him a bit before we put him in his crib. He is just so darn sweet.

Wednesday, April 1

Elias LOVES plastic easter eggs. He loves to open and close them, suck on them and bang them together. It is so cute.
