To say that Eli loves playing and simply just being outside is quite an understatement. We are definitely enjoying the warm Spring temperatures, exploring our yard (and lots of our neighbor's yards too), our cul-de-sac, and the sidewalks in our development. Our independent-minded boy doesn't want to hold my hand, but rather prefers to take off on his own. However, he doesn't quite know how a scraped knee or hand feels like yet. I'm sure it's only a matter of time until Band-Aids and Neosporin are staples in our household and I'm cleaning dirty fingernails each evening during bath time. He can't get enough of the grass, the empty flowerbeds filled with last years potting soil, dried, dead worms on the sidewalk, and all the mud he can find. What a nice and welcome change from Winter. We just love Spring!
