Eli is 10 Months Old!

Eli's monthly pictures with his number sticker have become increasingly harder.

Which means they have also become more fun.....even if it is because he is getting a bit mischievous. I love the idea of having a wild, active, mischievous little boy.

Remind me I said that in a couple of years.

This past Saturday morning after Eli's bath I remembered I had remembered I had never taken his ten month pictures. It got lost in the post-holiday madness so I decided that it was the perfect time.

I have mentioned before that our laid back, sweet baby has become more and more rowdy. He throws fits when he doesn't get his way, he is very particular about who touches him and who doesn't and he is LOUD. Like screams at the top of his lungs all the time.

He is seriously so fun, but I have a feeling when he starts walking (running?) I am going to be one worn out momma!

Back to the pictures:

At first Eli was all about being the center of attention (not like he ever isn't the center of attention) but you can tell his hands are already on the sticker ready to rip it off:
Got it off!

Victory!
Seeing my desperate attempts to get a good picture with the "10" sticker on Eli (HELLO birthday party!!!) Luke decided to put the sticker back on Eli and hold his hands so I could get a picture (which really makes no sense because I do not want a man who just woke up in my precious baby's 10 month picture but it was the thought that counts).

Please note Eli's face below. He did not want to be touched. He wanted his sticker in his hands. He was full on SCREAMING in this picture.

So dad let go of him.....and he's happy again!

So then Luke decided to put him on his lap to achieve the perfect picture....again it's the thought that counts:

I'm pretty sure Eli hated his life at this moment

And then happy again!


So, I give you Eli's 10 month picture:
Life is definitely fun, exciting, and hysterical around here!

I've had to give Finn the sticker from the previous month to get him to keep his hands off that month's sticker! Tomorrow is month #10...we'll see if that technique still works...crazy boys :)

Melody said...

I laughed so loud over the picture with the sticker on Eli's back! Too funny!

You are SO in for such a fun, crazy, boy-filled future! From another mom of two boys - cherish every moment! I know you will!

Sweet Simplicity said...

This made me laugh out loud! I'm guessing his next couple of month pictures will look the same. Hilarious!

The picture of him backwards is kinda cute!!

Did you stick it on after he was in the onesie? Maybe if you applied the sticker while he's naked and then put the whole thing on at once... it would fake him out for a minute or two? Might be worth a try next month.

What a sweet boy, I love seeing how animated he is now!

I think this is my favorite post ever on your blog. Well there are some other funny ones too (toenail issues) but this made my morning!!!

PinkSass said...

These picture are seriously the best. Love the ones of Luke holding him down.

Must say this just gets me even more excited to have a boy.

Amanda said...

Seriously, this post had me dying laughing!!! I love the sticker on his back, too stinkin' funny!

He is so cute and growing so fast!

This made me literally laugh out loud. What a silly little boy!

Malissa said...

Haha! That last pic made me laugh out loud! Smart thinking Mom and Dad.

Kelly Gibbs said...

My baby turned 10 months last weekend and I still haven't gotten the pictures with the sticker because I don't have the energy..ha! Maybe this week! And the walking thing...you will be exhausted! Kason walks 95% of the time now and I chase him 100% of the time! Shoo! Exhausting but SO FUN! :)

Betsy said...

Hahaha! So cute! I love how that captures his personality so well! :)

Sarah said...

Megan, I've never commented before, but have been reading for a few weeks. I love your humor in your posts! My little guy is about a month behind Eli so i can completely relate to the monthly picture woes. But....I'm pretty sure your hubby's efforts take the cake in this one for me. How thoughtful yet totally unhelpful for your "vision." I love it...so hilarious!

Taylor said...

I follow Dianna's blog (see above) and popped over here to read about your adventures in picture taking. So cute! My 9 month old is starting to display the same behavior! Thanks for sharing.
