Eli was blessed on November 6 at church. He didn't cry until the very end and Jared did a wonderful job. I am so mad that I didn't get a picture of us on his special day but it was enjoyable and nice to have our families there to share it with us. My friend came and took these of him in his blessing outfit before he grew out of it.

Here he is at 3 months old. He spends a lot of time in his comfy jammies and wears mitts a lot but I'm starting to not put them on because he just sucks on his fingers which makes the mitts soaking wet. I like to have his picture with this monkey each month to compare how much he has grown in a month. He has always been super smiley and so much fun for us!

Morris Family Christmas Party 2011

Every year Jared's mom has a Christmas party where we make graham cracker houses, santa delivers a present to everyone, and we eat and open gifts. It was a lot of fun!

Emmett and London at the kids' table drinking something yummy and not eating any dinner.

This year Emmett just wanted to eat the candy off the houses and didn't quite understand it was just for decoration. Maybe next year.

These two are nine months apart and they love each other. They are so fun to watch.
Emmett calls her "Dondon"

Eli's first time with Santa and he was, of course, asleep.

Emmett is terrified like most 2 year olds are I guess.

These aren't from the party but oh well.

Eli almost 3 months old in this picture.

Emmett sat and watched this train go around Grandma Morris's tree. He eventually had to touch it and play with it.

MATER! Looks like he's about to eat Emmett's head.

I almost spent this Halloween alone but thankfully ended up with a full house. Jared's training was canceled so he was able to come home the same day he left. Getting a treat from Grandma Morris's trunk.

I carved a pumpkin earlier that day.

We came upon this cute talking witch head while trick-or -treating.

Scary skeletons

As always I wish I would've taken more pictures.

More Birthday

Jared decided to plan a party for Emmett the morning of his birthday. He got mater and a tractor from Cars. He is always tipping tractors over just like on the movie.

He didn't really like us singing to him and was mad because I wouldn't let him take the backhoe off his cake.


He kept saying "messy"

The next day we took him to a pumpkin patch and they had these cute little goats he loved to pet.

He was in tractor heaven!

Future farmer. He got a tractor/truck movie for his birthday and he loves it. I even like it and I notice all the different types of tractors and dump trucks around.

He picked up all the bumpy pumpkins and put them in the wheelbarrow. We would take them out when he wasn't looking.

Helping daddy.

It was a fun day and only a little cold.

Emmett is 2!

Hard to believe it has already been 2 years since this cute face joined our family. He has a lot of personality and shares it with everyone! When he's happy, he's super happy and when he's out! He LOVES cars, trucks, backhoes, trains, and tractors. He has been obsessed with McQueen for quite awhile and has watched the movie MANY times. He also loves Toy Story. He loves animals, especially my cat fluffers. He also loves his "bink" and "blankie." Someday soon we will be saying good bye to the bink. He has known his shapes for a long time and has learned the sounds of all the letters in the alphabet. We are still working on colors. He can count to ten sometimes when stacking blocks. It's so cute.

24 month stats:

Weight: 29 lbs 64.78 %tile

Length 87.63 cm 54.41 %tile

Head 48.26 38.89 %tile

We love this boy a lot and are so lucky to have him in our lives.

Helping daddy wash windows.


!st actual hair-cut at cookie cutters. He did so good and loves sitting in this car and honking the horn.


Getting his balloon and sucker at the end.

He usually sleeps with 2 or 3 vehicles.

He had croup recently and 2 days in a row he fell asleep, once on the floor and once on my bed.

Present from Grandma Morris, his "Cars" outfit came from his Great Grandma Wuthrich.
