Eli Plays the Crankmeister
We went for a walk on Sunday to a little lake nearby our house. Annie had the greatest time swimming in the sub-zero degree water. The boys were all bundled up for the trip, munched on crackers, and came back in the greatest mood (it was a great day). Here they are blissfully making a tremendous mess with their zwieback toast. (You can tell that the boys have hat-head; their hair isn't its usually perky self...)
Well, we finally bit the bullet and got the boys larger car seats. Here we are enjoying them in our living room (don't worry, we will eventually be using them in the car).
Needless to say (as per the title of this blog), Eli has been a bit cranky today. Patrick and I have been saying all day, "Gee, Eli seems to be out of sorts today." So about three o'clock this afternoon I got around to thinking, hmm, I wonder what's wrong with Eli today? And I put my finger in his mouth and--lo and behold!--a TOOTH. That makes five for Eli. Five teeth and still has trouble sitting upright (I guess with that mouth full of teeth it's hard to hold that huge head up!). You can just see it in the picture, to the left of his two bottom teeth. Poor sweet Eli!
A little baby Tylenol, a teether (which he was obviously wanting!)...
...and the magic of Baby Einstein...
...and we are back to our usual selves! (Baby Einstein is the opiate of the masses in our household.)
