Elias Turns 2 Months Old

I took a long look into two beautiful blue eyes tonight that were staring back at me.  I realized how quickly he is growing and how, before I know it, Elias will be 2 years old.  However, I just stared at him...  at how perfectly he fits into our life, at how precious his stern features are, and at how I wish I could keep him little like this forever.  God really has blessed us beyond all I could ask or even think!

Here is Elias' 2nd Month, by Weeks:

In his 5th week, Elias:
Celebrated Father's Day at home -
     because he was sick!
Had his hand dipped in paint
     to create his Daddy's gift.
Liked laying flat on the floor.
Started holding his head up.
Was very strong.
Went to his very first concert -
     he saw The Isaacs with Mom and Dad.
Gave his first smile to his Mimi.
Rolled over from his belly to back.

Wearing his "My Dad is My Hero" sticker

Leaving his "mark" on his Daddy's Father's Day present

Reaching for Grandpa's face

Fell asleep in the bedroom floor

Holding his head up

Giving the "Elvis" lip

He looks thrilled, right?!
Getting his picture taken with SONYA ISAACS!

In his 6th week, Elias:

I think she likes him.  :)

Oh wow.  Elias has no idea.

Showing off

He's got skills.
Holding his head up high.

Sweet, sweet smile

Good morning, baby Elias.

"Mom, we will help you with him.
We can do it."

Giving his biggest brother a grin

Chubby cheeks, chunky arms, and a cheeky grin...
I seriously love this boy.
This, of course, was BEFORE his shots.

This, obviously, was AFTER his shots.

He's taking a liking to his Daddy.

Be still my heart.
Look at those lashes. those lips. that nose!
