July 23, 2011 — I expected Eliana to lay back and relax in her lamb seat while I sorted the laundry. Instead, she sat up, and she couldn’t stop waving her arms and smiling at me. She’s growing up so fast!

I’m no marketing expert, but you might sell a few more of those $9.99 triple-CD sets if you proofread the cover art.

When Eliana has green beans, rice, and sweet potatoes for dinner, we call it “The Ireland”.

Our niece, Ella, shows off some amazing work with sidewalk chalk.

Grandma Pam and Grandpa Dave were happy to climb in the back seat with Eliana for a short trip to the Gateway Cafe for breakfast.

Eliana, left, was born just five days after Zachariah, on the right. This was a spur-of-the-moment shot at the Video Cafe service at Kenosha Bible Church on February 20, 2011.

Who is this “Al Ways” guy, anyway?

Some serious snow drifting occurred on February 2, 2011. It was so bad that work was canceled. Wow.

This is the standard outfit for line judges at the Australian Open, the first grand slam tennis tournament of the year.

The first time we brought Eliana out with us to dinner was on January 14, 2011. We went to the Chancery in downtown Racine.

Two examples of me adding a little excitement to dessert. Throw some ice cream in between two freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, or add a couple of peanut butter cups to a cone. Simple, yet effective.

After church on Sunday, December 26, 2010, a crowd gathered ’round to see little Eliana.

————————————————————————————————————————

The AWANA bulletin board at Kenosha Bible Church had a beautifully-designed announcement of Eliana’s birth.

————————————————————————————————————————

When we got drilled with nearly a foot of lake-effect snow, I hopped out of bed early and powered up the snowblower.  I declared victory with the snapping of this picture, even though the plow came by later that day and forced some additional clearing activity.

————————————————————————————————————————

It was great to see this announcement in the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church bulletin, even if Eliana’s name was misspelled.

This is our method for warming a bottle of milk for Eliana.  To keep the bottle from floating out of the hot water in the purple bowl, we carefully place a mug on top of it.  Five minutes later, the feeding can begin!

At the hospital where Eliana was born, the Labor & Delivery waiting room has two somewhat conflicting signs.

The first asks those in the waiting room to be quiet: SHHH! (Silent Hospitals Help Healing)

The second encourages patients to speak up if you have questions or concerns.

To summarize: SHHH! Speak up!

I should have cleaned out this crumb tray months ago.
