Eldyn: 1 Year + 8 Months

August 15, 2013 § 1 Comment


Mama’s Boy: As someone who loves to “DOOOOOO!” it himself, Eldyn’s been especially attached to his mama this month. He calls for me from his crib every morning, likes it best when I put him in/out of his car seat and prefers to have at least one part of his body squarely between my feet.

Yeah: Eldyn has the cutest way of saying “yeah” that just does not translate to a written description on this blog. It’s like a cross between “yeah ok” and “Heck Yeah!” and is usually delivered at a level that is just a notch below “outside voice.” Here is a video of me trying to get him to say it “right.” The first affirmative answer is the closest to what I had in mind, but the others are great too.

Splash Happy: I have never met anyone in the world who is happier to be in a lake than Eldyn. We took a family bike ride to Lake Harriet last weekend and from the second we got there to the second we left, Eldyn was jumping and splashing and dunking daddy like a crazy person. His enthusiasm was contagious and before long, most of the lake was screaming and laughing and carrying on too. The next time you think you can’t change the world, just remember that Eldyn inspired strangers to spray each other with squirt guns — just by being happy.
