Adjusting to the three of us again

My sister just left us this morning, and I'm already missing her. We basically laughed for 10 days straight, and I showed her the best parts of having Elliott and the parts that , are more difficult. For example, taking a trip to the beach requires intense planning and 5 bags (seriously, diaper bag, two for towels and blankets, one for cold food, one for not cold food), a bumbo seat, 5 tubes of sunscreen, and a very good attitude. I think she has some insight into why I haven't traveled south with him yet.

Anyway, it was so good having her, and Elliott hasn't been nearly as screamy and spoiled as I was expecting. We bought some fabric and sewed some dresses (well, I've only sewn half of mine), she discovered Elliott could roll over, and although I had fed Elliott rice cereal a couple of times, she fed him and we found out he is super enthusiastic about his food. He chased after the spoon like he was tracking it or something
He almost took her arm off after this bite. NOM NOM where is it? Oh, there! NOM.

This is actually a picture David took of him the first time I gave him cereal. He was much more civilized that time.
