Fifteen Days of Fun

At the ripe old age of two weeks and a day, our tiny Eli is growing up fast. This morning his lactation consultant informed me that he had "officially graduated from Breastfeeding 101." (During his first week of life, he was a little slow "latching on" to the whole concept of nursing, but has been eagerly making up for lost time since.)

In honor of the occasion, I thought I'd post some of our favorite pics from the last couple of weeks.

Practically Perfect

The first car ride

Alternative transportation: The Sling

Weirdness Training begins early at our home...

...as does our obsession with John Deere

Little Farmer Eli gets a little too much loving from his sisters

Too cute for words

What a precious bundle!

In a while, crocodile.

SO CUTE!
We have those same "Big Sister/Brother" shirts. I love all the pictures. (What's Bruce's last name- he looks like someone from our mission.)
I can't believe 15 days already. I've got 15 more to go!

Congrats on your little graduate! These are fabulous -- I just love how you can take so many pictures with a newborn and they are all unique and darling. That's what you get while they are trying out all their facial expressions.

Great pictures. We had fun seeing him tonight. He is really cute.

Hopefully Eli will continue his sleeping habit while riding in the car.
My last name is Richards, where did you serve The Favorite? I don't remember any Elder or Sister Favorites...
