Timothy is Coming!

Kelly and Phil (my sister and brother-in-law) are at the hospital now to have Timothy Stephen Heinz, their first child! She went into labor tonight and things were progressing pretty quickly, from what we could tell, so I hope she didn't have him in the car! :) I'm so excited to meet our little nephew. This will officially complete the trifecta of boys that my sisters and I produced this year. Eli and Cooper are 5 weeks and 3 days apart, and if Timothy is born tonight, he and Cooper will be 5 weeks and 3 days apart too. I am so excited to meet him!

In other news, Eli is doing really well. We've been out three times this week. Today's outing was to Northpark Mall with Sarah and Titus and Rye. He did great, as he always does in public. He's so perfect when we're out that no one believes me when I say that he fussed all morning, kept me up all night, etc. They think I'm lying. :)

He's a really good baby overall. And now he is smiling! I can't always get one out of him, but when I do it is like sunshine. Yesterday I heard Eric laughing from the nursery and went in there to find Eli just beaming up at him. I loved seeing the joy on Eric's face watching his son smile at him. He's starting to vocalize more now, too (Eli, not Eric. :) ). He hasn't learned to "coo" yet, but he's perfected this cute little "aaaaooooo" sound that makes me smile every time I hear it. I love watching him grow and change every day, though I know I will miss my little tiny baby. He's almost 7 pounds now!

I am so thankful for Sarah. She makes life so much more wonderful. It is always an uplifting joy to be with her. God is so good to give us the friends we need.

I should be in bed now because I've been up since 5:30am. This is Eli's time to wake up. He refuses to sleep later, much to my chagrin. But I can't sleep because I'm so excited about Timothy coming!
