"In our search to obtain relief from the stresses of life, may we earnestly seek ways to simplify our lives. May we comply with the inspired counsel and direction the Lord has given us in the great plan of happiness. May we be worthy to have the companionship of the Holy Ghost and follow the guidance of the Spirit as we navigate this mortal journey. May we prepare ourselves to accomplish the ultimate purpose of this mortal test- to return and live with our Heavenly Father."

Eli 4 months

My baby is 4 months old today!
Eli is seriously the best baby. He has a few crying moments here and there but for the most part he is just so pleasant.  He is so smiley all the time. He even giggles when we change his clothes. It's the cutest thing! 
He still doesn't have the "sleeping through the night" thing down but we are working on that. 
His naps aren't really on a schedule either (which is so different than the other three) 
He is really into spitting bubbles right now and he found his voice and loves to jibber jabber.
Like I said, he loves to smile and your almost guaranteed a smile just by talking to him.
He is not too fond of laying down while he's awake. He wants to be able to sit up and watch everything. 
He seems to have a stuffy nose all of the time, not sure why.
He spits up the least out of all of my kids. It has been a nice change.
He LOVES bath time. He will go nuts kicking his legs and splashing water in his own face. 
I just can't get enough of his cute little face. I just want him to stay little just a little while longer. 

Here are some pictures of our ice storm we had a couple weeks ago.  I know it's nothing compared to the northern states but my kids got excited about all the icicles. I guess if they can't get snow then icicles will have to do. It was really pretty to see, although I'm glad it didn't last long :)
