More than a few people have asked me to see photos of Baby Eli, or Ducky, as I call him.
So here he is in two photos I just could not resist sharing.
Of course, that is me and I am with him in Texas, visiting his great grandfather, my Dad.
This was in mid-April and he was seven months old.
It is absolutely amazing how much he has changed just in these two months and on the fourteenth he will be nine months old.
The photo below was taken about a month ago by our daughter.
It is, I think, the sweetest photo I have ever seen.
There's a lot of love in this photo.
So, that is Ducky.
We skype several times a week and I get to see all the good stuff his mama makes him eat.
I always make a point of telling him about the ice cream and cake we will have next time we are together. The really good stuff. Cake might be his first word, you never know.
His mama is very good about briefly leaving the room when we have these private talks about cake and ice cream versus blueberry banana oat flax cereal and rice cakes.
I have also been asked to share photos of the casa, room by room, so you can see all the updates.
I will do this, but first I have to clean the casa.
So be patient.
In the meantime the cereus cacti are starting to bud out so you may see those first and I have a special story about a little basket of flowers that I want to tell you.
Enough for today.
I hope you enjoy that second photo as much as I do.
I look at it every day!
Adios y que le vaya bien!
