Q & A

Gretchen asked:
Edward and Gretchen has left a new comment on your post "Baby it's cold outside":

He is so stinkin cute!!! How is he doing? How much does he weigh? What is he like? Sleeping? Are his eyes brown, I can't tell? Is Paul a baby hog or does he share? We need the life of Elijah update.

Amber responds:
Elijah is doing great! He weighed in at 9.5 pounds the other day. He is still taking donated breast milk and loving it. Heather Jo just picked up some milk from a friend in Dallas for when we visit in a couple of weeks. That way I don't have to deal with TSA trying to make me drink it or something like that when we go through airport security.

He's a very happy baby. He is smiling lots. He has found his hands, but he hits himself in the head often. I guess that's normal. He laughs at Hannah and he likes to have his toes and ears tickled. Paul loves to see him smile. Elijah's eyes are still blue. I've heard that sometimes babies' eyes can change colors after a few months, but his are stuck on blue. And he sleeps about 4-5 hours at night and takes a few naps during the day. He likes to be in the baby wrap and he passes out right away in there.

I am sure that all moms think their baby is the cutest in the world, but I just happen to be right.


  1. So glad Gretchen asked all the questions. Thanks for the update. We will have to agree to disagree on the cutest boy. You realize I have 3 of the cutest ever!!!

  2. Thanks for that update! Sounds like he's doing great, and yes, he's pretty darn cute.

  3. Thank you, thank you. Sounds like you all are doing great.

  4. For sure he is the cutest baby in the world! Stephanie O'Dell
