Eli's second christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday spent with those you love. Eli once again was spoiled! He got some pretty cool things including a rocking horse, clothes, books, ornaments, vtech lap top, little foldable chair and a cute Mickey Mouse table and chairs which he's already taken a liking to! I was cleaning up the kitchen this evening and usually if I'm not paying attention to him, he's wrapped around my leg trying to GET my attention but for once he wasn't and it was really quiet. Uh oh, where's Eli and what's he up to? I go into his bedroom and he was just sitting at his table playing with his blankie. It was the cutest thing :) Here is a pic I snapped of him just chillin' with his markers securely in his fist (you can write on the table with dry erase markers) and his new car steering wheel that plays music, sitting on top:

It dawned on me the night before our family gathering on Saturday that I didn't have a Christmas outfit for him so I frantically went to my craft room to see what I had on hand. I found a blue plain t-shirt hanging in his closet, grabbed the baby legs from his outfit last year to attach to the arms to make it long sleeved and then made Rudolph out of felt to appliqué to the tee. Here it is up close:

To complete the look, I tied jingle bells to his shoes. This served 2 purposes, 1) it got people into the christmas spirit and 2) I always knew where he was :)

Here he is grooming himself in the mirror, getting ready for the party

On Sunday we went to my dad's side where we got to meet my cousin's son Tae who's the same age as Eli. They were so cute! The minute Eli entered the room Tae walked up to him with open arms ready to give him a hug!  I melted. Here's a pic of the 2 kiddos with a couple of my other cousins:

How cute is little Tae??
Alrighty, back to the grind tomorrow so I better get myself to bed. Na night all.
