High Five for Friday!

{one} The Merlin's Magic Sleep Suit was indeed magical...but alas, the magic has come to an end. Eli started rolling over in the suit, so we had to stop using it. I was really nervous about it, but he didn't do too bad. The first few naps were rough, as he seemed a bit confused about being laid down in his crib without the suit. But the first night, he only woke up once. This week he has been battling the 45 minute intruder during naps, but overall he has done really well with the transition. And he just looks so stinkin' adorable in his footie pajamas :)

{two} After 13 wonderful and faithful years, I said goodbye to Peabody. It was such a good little car! Through college, starting a new life in DFW, and marriage, this little Mazda was an awesome SUV. But it was definitely time for something else. It has been through a lot and was starting to show quite a bit of wear and tear. And we're pretty sure it was going to die any day haha. I asked Mike to take one last photo before he traded it in...

Adios Peabody! You were a fantastic car.

{three} We had already introduced Eli and Maddie to solid foods in the form of purees. But I knew we would want to use more of the Baby Led Weaning principles as they got older. So when they hit 6 months, we decided to go ahead and start. We're starting slow, but it's all just introduction and practice at this point anyway. Maddie took to it right away, and Eli was a little wary of it, but I think they're going to do just fine.

{four} We got a recommendation to take Eli to the chiropractor to see if they could help even out his flat head from the torticollis {neck muscles cause him to turn to one side only} and subsequent plagiocephaly {flat head}. It's our last attempt to try avoiding a helmet for our little guy. So we'll so how it goes. It meant that I got some one on one time with this sweet boy :)

{five} My parents are coming into town this weekend, and we are looking forward to spending time with them, celebrating Mother's Day, and dedicating our sweet babies at church!
