Elihu's Birthday

My nephew turned 3 yesterday. Still remember him being born. He looked JUST like Dailah when she was born. Lots of thick, brown hair. And now, they've grown up to be, what I lovingly refer to as, "the wonder non-twins". Elihu John is hilarious. If he doesn't end up being a lineman, I'll be shocked. He's my stocky lovebug. He speaks in a monotone that is so irresistible. Imagine a computer voice saying, "I love you aunt Tesi." Yep, precious. He is Dailah's best friend, her day is not complete until she's seen him or pretended to talk to him on the phone. My day is so much better if I get to wrap my arms around this guy and give him a big squeeze.

It was also my sweet sister-in-law's birthday as well. I loved this girl from the very first time I met her and it's truly only gotten better since then. She is everything I wanted to be when I grew up. I am so, so proud of her (in the least condescending way possible) and love introducing her as my sister.

There might be a small family resemblance here.

Look at Tariku's face, hilarious.

First Tariku's face is beyond funny- LOL. Second your daughter and Elihu look a little like Bert and Ernie (face shape) but yet freakishly alike- how cute!

Aw, happy birthday, Eli!! I can't believe he's 3 already! And, happy birthday to Aunt Katie. She is prettier every time I see her picture. She and Zach really look so much alike. But, not nearly as much as Grampa and Eli do!! Holy smokes!

Have to love December birthdays. And thank you for my sweet phone call on mine. So kind. Can't really believe that I am 378 (did you know that you have such old freinds?) My sister and her family have been in town from NJ so we have mostly been at my mom's and dad's the last several days. Love all your pictures. Will have less poetry and more photography up in the next couple days. Love to you.

Just realized I wrote 378- I am not quite that old, really.
