So, yesterday afternoon when I arrived home from work I noticed something in Elijah's eyelash. I thought maybe he had some eyelashes stuck together or a fuzz in his eye. So, I tried to get it out. Well, to my surprise it was a TICK. The little critter had attached itself to Eli's eyelash line. I was a little freaked out, but thankfully Sis. Trudy from my church took care of it. Hopefully when we go to the Dr's tomorrow (for his normal 2 year check up) I will say something to him & he can check him out.

Whew...don't really like the tick thing, but how do you keep a 2 year old little boy inside? Ahh, yes, YOU DON'T!!!

Happy 2nd Birthday Elijah!

Saturday, June 20th was Elijah's 2nd birthday. We were blessed to have Dan's parents & my parents here to celebrate with us. Elijah received many new toys & was especially fond of his new "trike" that mommy & daddy picked out for him. I am sure in a week or so the newness will wear off & other toys will be the hit.

We are trying to teach Eli to enjoy the simple things in life & to not expect too much. How do you teach that fully to a 2 year old? Yeah, I said we are trying, but didn't say we were going to succeed. He is such a good boy and we are truly blessed to have him in our life.

Happy Birthday my dear sweet baby boy!
