He's SIX!

It happened.  He got older.  He's SIX and I feel old!  In August Eli started Kindergarten and has made a best friend.  He's got a loose tooth and can count to over 130.  He's reading at a 3rd grade level and loves to tell jokes.  Eli is totally into robots and gears and "anything with electricity".  He got a ton of robot/machine related gifts for Christmas and birthday and enjoys playing with these along with Legos and Frigits.  He is so much fun to spend time with at this age!  He can talk your ear off and stump you with questions you thought you knew the answer to :)

We celebrated his birthday with two parties this year:  a friend party and a family party.  Eli was thrilled to spend his actual birthday with friends AND get a second party :)  We also took him out to Red Robin where he got a free birthday sundae and balloon.  He felt very celebrated this year, and I think I'm finally over the guilt of his thrown-together-at-the-last-minute first birthday party (it was the day after I was released from the hospital from being treated for dehydration when I was pregnant with Anna)!

Here's is photo lineup for age six!
