How could I not be distracted by this cuteness?!
On any given day I have multiple blog posts lined up, many of them half written with all the photos waiting and ready. You’d think that since I had a whole month to prepare Elijah’s 2 Month post that I would have that published, as promised, for viewing today. Or better yet, yesterday, since that was his monthly birthday. The truth is – I did not get to that this afternoon because even though I have a rough draft already written up I was completely distracted by my son’s cuteness and I did not get around to finishing that rather length account of the beautiful second month of his life!
I constantly find myself sidetracked by his sweet smiles, his infectious giggles, and the way that he is beginning to coo at anything he findings interesting or amusing. My favourite is when he sneezes once, then thinks he is going to sneeze again but it goes away, so he coos in the most adorable tone! It is PRICELESS! When he was one month old, I tried to take some pictures of him to make myself feel better about not being able to get the beautiful newborn shots that I would have loved to have gotten if we lived in one of our home countries. Personally, I didn’t think that the 1 Month at-home shoot went very well. I was disappointed that I could not, despite all my efforts, get the pictures that I was imagining.

Today I gave it another attempt, and even though it was slightly frustrating in the beginning, I ended up figuring it out and getting some adorable pictures of our boy. Justin was in the lounge with me, but he was working on a bible study by himself. I could tell that he was happy for me when I started to make progress. Each time I showed him a photo of his son, he would melt and a huge grin would appear on his face. I love seeing how much he adores Eli.
I will have todays photos of Elijah edited and uploaded very soon, and I will be sure to post those to this blog after you are all caught up on his month 2 update (which I promise to try my best to have ready by tomorrow). In the meantime, here is another picture from today that I really love…
Two months old and as sweet as can be!
