Someone asked me the other day if I have a theme picked for Elijah's first birthday. At first I thought she was a little crazy, but thinking about it now, there IS only two months until the big one. It's hard to imagine it's been nearly a year already. I can't believe my baby used to be this small!
But since he isn't that small anymore, I guess I do need to pick a theme. Baseball anyone?

Once again, things are going well in this House of Nies. Life just trucks along with Eric working and Elijah and I filling our days with laughter and naps. I will say that I'm looking forward to nicer weather so we can be outside again!
Eli is nearly walking by himself these days. He trucks around the house holding onto my fingers and can pull himself up using chairs or anything that's handy. He can nearly do it in the middle of the floor with nothing nearby but I think that will take a little more time. Scooting around our wood floor on his bottom is also pretty fun for him. He's still resisting crawling with his tummy off the floor but he'll get there eventually.
My life is still looking after my bundle of joy. We make it out of the house most days going to Bible study, library story time, the grocery store and of course the office to see Dad. I really enjoy my quiet time while Elijah is asleep. I manage to get in some treadmill and shower time and then relax. Most of my pre-baby activities have gone by the wayside. I'm hoping to get back to yoga, pilates, and kickboxing sooner rather than later and I've started reading more before bed to enjoy new books.
Eric continues to work harder than ever but still has the energy to come home and spend quality time with us. He's still feeding Elijah every night and their new tradition is to bathe together. They both love it and I think it's about the cutest thing I've ever seen.
Now that I've prattled on about how we're doing, here's what you came for:
