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...
 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. :))

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)


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!

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!
