The Met

While in New York, we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Eli took a look at some of the Monets on exhibit.

We also went to see the special exhibit on Robert Frank's The Americans.

We ended the day in the Temple of Dendur, where Eli had his lunch...

...and then went promptly to sleep.

New York Pt 1

We spent a grand short week in New York City over Thanksgiving doing as much as possible. Lots of walking through the streets with an awake (and an asleep) Eli.

We were protected by New York's finest.

No pastrami on rye yet for Eli. But soon.

Experiencing Zabar's the day before Thanksgiving. Not for the faint of heart.

First plane trip

Eli took his first plane trip during Thanksgiving, flying from Raleigh to New York. Mom and dad spent days trying to figure out how to pack for the journey but thankfully almost all the scenarios we tried to plan for never came to pass. Even on a small commuter jet (ERJ) on mom's lap Eli was a champ.

Four Months!

In mid November Eli went in for his four month old checkup. He continues to grow fast, weighing in at 17 lbs. 11 oz. and is 27 inches tall.

He continues to be more and more comfortable on his stomach as he checks out his charts.


Eli enjoyed his first Halloween, dressing up as a dog and going to a party in downtown Raleigh. No candy this year - maybe next year.
