Just now, Elijah made me smile and he doesn't even know it. He just went to bed about ten minutes ago. Before he went to bed, we spent some time practicing "listening", which has been a little difficult for him lately. I first asked him to put the trains away in the green bin, which he did very well...he even put the lid back on. Then I asked him to pick his cars up and put them away...which he did (but I didn't see where just yet). He then went to the gate and said "gate down? Eli bed!" I was impressed. So we went down the hall to his bedroom, he turned his radio on and we said prayers and he got into bed for the night. Excellent. I cleaned cat boxes, took our trash out and sat down to relax for the night. And this is what I saw when I sat down:

He sure did put his cars away! But wait...check this out:

Those cars are fairly evenly spaced! I'm so proud! My kid rocks!
Here are some pictures of Elijah for you to enjoy:

Playing the piano (makes me so proud!)

Not sure where this picture came from (Adam?) but I think he looks pretty tough!

He loves Uncle Jeffrey's car...

and the speed racer helmet!

Riding the airplane...

and the tricycle. He can almost pedal by himself but his legs need to be just a tad longer!

He was intrigued with this tree the whole time we were outside today.

Look Ma...a stick!

He was hitting leaves with his stick.

And then decided to run with his stick...we stopped that game pretty quickly!

Just some random shots that I took before:

Somebody is SO ready for his nap!

That's it for now...the battery in my camera is dead so I need to charge it for awhile.
