Big changes

It has been a big week for Eli. On Friday, dad was able to feed Eli for the first time (with mom's milk). It took just a second for Eli to realize he could be fed this way too and gulped down the milk.

Saturday Eli went out for his first "fancy" dinner with our great friends Marc, Tiff and Ian. He was a champ during dinner - opening his eyes but then going back to sleep.

He loves to sleep when we are sleeping - just not necessarily always in his crib.

On Monday, Eli went for his one month checkup (though he is officially 5 weeks old). All is well! He is growing fast - he now weighs 12 lbs. 10 oz. and is 23 inches long.

Boylan Bash

Eli took his first trip in a Baby Bjorn on Sunday to the Boylan Bash, the yearly neighborhood block party. He loved the sights and sounds and dad was able to eat and drink with him strapped to his chest.


On Sunday, Eli's great aunt and uncle from Chicago, Susan and Richard, visited and got to spend time with a quickly growing boy.

Eli goes to the pub

Sunday Eli made his first non-doctor trip out of the house - a journey to the Boylan Bridge Brewpub.

Grandpa and Grandma Hyman, along with his cousin Naomi, made the journey.

Dad had his first beer - which promptly put him to sleep when he got home.

Eli made the trip like a champ.
