|A typical summer in Texas|
We went on numerous walks, in particular around our apartment complex. Justin took up two summer jobs for the month of July in order to fund our trip to South Africa coming up in early 2015. While he was out, Eli and I spent a lot of time with our dear friends, Amber and Violet. In the evenings Justin would join us there for dinner. Elijah went for a 6 week check up and his first set of immunisations. No tears from him (or mommy) – we were very proud of him!
We had tons of quality time with our bundle of joy, and in this time the new mommy took as many photos as she could! Look at those adorable little toes – how could I resist!? We wasted no time in taking Elijah out and about to see the city where he was born, and even though it was too hot to do anything outdoorsy, we went to many lunches for our first few summer-time family dates.
Elijah has grown and changed so much during this, his first, summer… And every week we were surprised by the new developments that he was making. Look at that strong neck (above) as he focuses his eyes on his daddy. We love this little guy so much!
