The weather last weekend was really nice, so we went walking.

There's a nice walking trail near home, so we went there.

Not all of us walked, of course.

After we got home, Elijah showed us he can grab hold of his pacifier.

And, then drop it.

He relaxed some later.

Elijah got sick this past Sunday. He picked up something from another kid, and he's spent the last several days regretting it. We took some pictures before he got sick, so I'll use those instead.

He still enjoys playing. Now he's started to kick the ball. He hasn't quite grabbed the fish yet, but I think he's close.

The doctor told us to give him Pedialyte, and it's helped. He never had a fever; he just couldn't keep his food in him long.
He did get a chance to go riding in his car.

Checking his mirrors.

He seems to be feeling much better now. He's still smiling and happy (when he's well fed and clean), so we're not worried.

He still enjoys being the center of attention.

And sometimes, he just needs to rest.

Elijah got to visit his dad's college.
They have this nice tiger in the middle of campus.

The fountain was turned off, but it's still nice to look at.

He rested a bit later.

And his grandmother got him a rabbit.

He really enjoyed the swing his grandparents got him.

Some relaxing at the grandparents' house,

And an afternoon playing with somebody his own age.

Well, they didn't really do much playing.

And meeting yet another grandma. That's three total.

Watching TV with grandpa.

OK, so now that his dad has gotten some sleep, it's time to update the blog.
We flew a long way to see some more family.
His dad carried him through the airport.

He was a very good baby, and didn't cry or scream at all, not even when he got his mom all wet. (No pictures of that)
Once we landed, he got to see his grandmother again.

Then, he got to see the only grandmother remaining that he hadn't yet met.

Then, it was time to meet some great-grandparents.

Also, his grandpa

He also got to relax a bit, and enjoy having his picture taken.

Then, at long last, it was time to meet his cousin.

His cousin decided to share some of the toys at their great-grandparents' house.

Lots of toys.

It was time later to celebrate his dad's birthday, and oh, wow, he needs to lose some weight.

More pictures from the trip later this week!

It's late. I'll post more later.
