"I should not talk so much about myself if there were any body else whom I knew as well."

Kyle has a coworker who makes the best hats and he commissioned her to make this for Eleanor. It's a Hog hat!! 
It's a tad bit big right now, which just means she can wear it for a couple of years! 
I really need to get some better photos of her wearing it. Plenty of time for that. Also, Drew REALLY loves the hat. 

And look who is suddenly sitting up on her own?! 
Misty got her the cutest stuffed animal cow and I made the mistake of telling Kayla that we needed to name him. She immediately declared him Mr. Rainbow Fuzzypants. I objected and by the end of the evening we had settled on calling him Ray... Short for Mr. Rainbow Fuzzypants. You win some you, you lose some. Haha. No matter his name, he's adorable and Eleanor loves him. 
And these toys for her high chair tray are awesome. They auction to the table (so she can't drop them), are great for chewing on, and she's loving them. Misty for the win. 
We had dinner at Nonnie's last night and the boys spent the entire evening putting together Legos "for JR". 
Dottie has a new exchange student named Rebecca. She's very nice, played Legos with the boys and held Eleanor for a while. 
Eleanor is figuring out that she can make the walker move and it's adorable (for now!).
