Eli's Girlfriend

Yesterday, we had Keri and her daughter Natalie over for a playdate. Natalie is just a few months older than Eli, so it is fun for them to play together. We call Natalie his girlfriend. Isn't she a cutie? She's got gorgeous bright blue eyes and curly blond hair. Eli will have to fight the other boys off for her.

I've noticed that Eli is getting more interested in other babies. He walks up to them and tries to hug them or kiss them. Sometimes he even tries to sit in their laps or lay his head on them. I think it is very sweet of him and I don't want to discourage him from playing with other kids, but sometimes he doesn't know his own strength or how to be gentle. It's a good thing we have some good friends that (hopefully) don't mind too much when the babies get so friendly.

At the playdate, Natalie gave Eli a really sweet hug and a kiss. Eli got so excited that he about tackled her trying to give her a hug back. I love her expression: "Help!"
