Eli

He is smiling a lot now!
Hanging out with Aunt Mallory
We had a great time with M&M this past weekend.  Thanks for coming to visit!  and Mark, Kimi won...
He sure loves his Mama!
Eli loves to play with his little 'friends' aka the brightly colored mushroom, owl, racoon, and hedgehog hanging on his bouncer.  He will stare at them for the longest time.  He also loves to 'talk' to them.  It is so cute!

Ha ha ha, this picture still makes me laugh everytime I see it!  He apparently wasn't too fond of church a couple of Sundays ago.  He had two nasty blowouts and soiled both of his outfits, so we had to take him home in just his diaper!

Eli is 2 months old!

Our little man is growing up!  Today he is two months old, so we thought we'd put up some pictures.
Hanging out with his lil doggy in his crib.  Eli dosen't sleep in his crib, but he will someday soon.

This is a little bit late, but here we are at the ward Halloween party dressed up as tourists.  I love Eli's little Hawaiian shirt!


Eli loves his belly time, although most of the time he'd rather be on his back.  He has, a few times, rolled over from his belly to his back.  He is also getting really strong at holding his head up.  go baby Eli!

Mama K and baby hanging out.  Eli has put on a few pounds in the past couple of months(notice the double chin) :)

hangin' in his bouncer staring at the light on the ceiling in his muscle tee

Our little man is starting to smile, but not consistently, so we haven't been able to get a good picture, but he has the cutest smile!  We love our little man and can't believe he is already two months!

First Hike

A couple of weeks ago Craig and I took Eli out on a hike. Too bad he slept the whole time...
 We're trying to take advantage of the good weather while it's still here.
Happy Fall!

side note: Call it what you want, but Eli rolled over twice today during his belly time. :)

Growing, growing, growing!

I can hardly believe that Eli is one month old! He has already changed and grown so much, I can only imagine what the next few months and years(oh dear...) have in store for us! It has been an honor and blessing being his mom, I'm thankful to my Heavenly Father for giving him to us. There are times I feel inadequate, tired and overwhelmed--thankgoodness they are outweighed by feelings of happiness, gratitude, and love! We meant to take pictures today to celebrate, buuuut we didn't. So here are some others from the past week or so:


 These are pictures from his first "sink" bath. He loved it! It was so dang cute to watch him look around completely content! I sure hope this means that he'll like Grandma and Grandpa's pool!
Although his stone-face is cute, I'm looking forward to a smile!
(and I'm not talking about the involuntary smiles that he gives once in a while...)
Happy one month, babyboy!

Favorite things...

Eli is almost 3 weeks old! Yesterday we had an appointment at the doctor and his weight was 8.00lbs(22%) and his height was 21 inches(53%). We're starting to figure out what he does/doesn't like. Here are a few of his favorite things...
 Sleep!
 Bath Time!
(buuuut, He's only has sponge baths because his umbilical cord hadn't fallen off until recently...)


His bouncer. It really comes in handy when we want to sit down to eat meals or do homework!
His Carseat. Within 2 minutes he falls asleep everytime he's put in it. without fail. He loves his stroller and car rides!
 During the first week, he wasn't eating very well, and had a minor case of jaundice. Solution: Tummy time in the sun! This particular day, we missed the sun while it was on the floor(barely), so Craig provided a puppet show for Eli instead!
The Moby Wrap! It sure makes doing homework a LOT easier.


ps... HAPPY BIRTHDAY MALLORY! We are so lucky to have you in our family! Feel free to come visit anytime... it's just a short little drive. :))

Birthday Bash

When my mom was here, Mark, Mallory, and Paige decided last minute to come up to visit. Craig's Birthday was on the 12th, so my mom made brownies and ice cream to have before they all left. Here are a few of pictures for your enjoyment...

Check out Eli's facial expression. I'd suggest clicking on it to make it bigger(simply so you can see the cute little double chin and his wrinkly forehead as a result of all that smoke!) More pictures to come from the visit with Eli's Aunts and Uncle. :))

Grandparents!

We were so lucky to have our parents come visit! My mom was able to come up Wednesday night(September 8th) and stayed until Tuesday(Sept. 14). She spoiled us! From dinners, diapers, and clothes, helping with bath time, appointments, walks, and relieving us in the wee hours of the night. It was so fun to have her here, and are looking forward to her visit in October!(crossing fingers...) (Eli and Grandma Wagner)
Craig's parents came up on Thursday(Sept. 16) to Saturday(Sept. 18). We are so happy that they are close and were able to come up. It was fun spending time with them, eating dinner with them, going to the park, and watching Eli with his grandparents. Grandma Fisher (this face is very typical of our little guy)

Grandpa Fisher(another very typical facial expression)

Dad,

I'm excited and verry anxious to introduce you to Eli. Although I want so badly for you to be here, I know there are more important things that you need to attend to right now. So in the mean time, we've been sure to tell him about his Grandpa Wagner and let him know that he's lucky to have your name embedded in his. We love you, and look forward to seeing you at Christmas(if not sooner...agian I'm crossing my fingers). Get better SOON. :)

With lots of love,

Kimberly Anne.

Finished Product

We've been meaning to post pictures of
the finished baby room BEFORE Eli came, buuuut he had something else in mind. :) So here it is... better late than never!

Happy Birthday!

Craig,
I am completely smitten with Eli, and am grateful that my Father in Heaven has given him to us. There isn't anybody else that I would rather share this experience with than you. I am so lucky to have such a loving and devoted guy. I can already tell that you will be a "hands on" dad. Eli was 4 days old before I even changed his first diaper, thanks for looking out for me. ;) I love you, I do. Happy Birthday!!! Here's to a LOT more!
Your one and only,
Kimberly Anne

Eli Paul Fisher

Our last prego picture of Kimi, just a couple weeks before Labor Day
Labor Day has a whole new meaning for Kimi and I. Kimi's water broke at 4:15am(talk about an exciting wake-up call!) I gathered up some things, we loaded up the car and headed down the road to Madison Memorial Hospital in Rexburg. Ten hours into labor(on Labor Day...ha ha, so ironic), Kimi was only at 2cm. After some discussion with the doctor, and the Lord we decided to have a c-section. Minutes after deciding on a c-section our little handsome man arrived. He was born on the 6th of September, 2010, at 2:57pm, weighing 7lbs. 2oz, and he is 21 inches long. We are so happy that he is here. Words cannot the describe our feelings and the joy we feel for having the privilage to raise him. We are excited about this new chapter of life.


Moments after birth, getting cleaned up.





He is one handsome little man.



Eli meeting his sweet, sweet mother. Kimi was so brave, and she has handled everything like a champion. I am so proud of her.





Our little family of three!

A work in progress...

I'm not really sure how it happened, or what made us ask, but our Landlord kindly gave us permission to paint the baby room. If you ask Craig, he'd say that I'm "nesting to the extreme," but I'd say it's fun. For our first time, I'd say we've done a preeetttty good job... I guess I don't realize how HUGE I am until I look at pictures of myself.

Practice makes Perfect

Hopefully he'll be just as willing to change the baby's diaper as he was this 2-liter of 7up. :)

Pictures of the newly-painted baby room are coming!
