Eli 7 Months, Mag's 33 Months

Okay, wait for it. It's Eli's monthly update on his actual right day. He's 7 months today! When thinking about what I would say about him I've come with a few things.

His favorite activities are army crawling around the floor and sitting and playing with toys. I'm truly amazed at how much of a preference he has at his young age. He knows which block is his favorite and if he can't reach it he gets upset. He's beginning to understand and be upset when mommy takes away one of sisters toys that are too mature for him. Though, I'm unable to truly…
