Some new pictures of the kids!!

Happy August!! It is now about 2 and a half months since Eli "Rocky" was born and he is sure growing. He is now up to right around 10 lbs and is starting to fill out a little bit. He is a well behaved little guy. Gets a little fussy when he is hungry but who doesn't. Leilani is a doll with him. She is always hugging and kissing him telling him how much she loves him. It's really cute most of the time. Just not when he is almost asleep and she startles him by hugging and kissing him.

Here are a few pictures of him from the past few months. It's been fun watching him grow.

He looks like a Rocky to me in this picture. My wife is still convinced his name should be Eli.

I don't think I have ever slept as comfortably as this kid looks in this picture.

Leilani turned 3 in July. I hope to be able to put up pictures from her birthday party later this month. We had a great time with friends and family. She got the princess bike that she has wanted. It is really cute to watch her ride it around. It is also a reminder that she is growing up :o(

We did a bowling night a couple of nights ago just for fun. She was not the best bowler in the world but she was the best cheerleader. Hugs and high fives all around as long as you did not get a gutter ball.

Took the kids to see Ringling Bros circus. Leilani loved it. Eli enjoyed looking around at everything. Beleive it or not he lasted the whole 2 1/2 hours and did not cry at all. She loved the elephants and the lions. She liked the clowns as well. Here are a few shots of the animals. Pretty awesome.

Eli Edward Peterson

May 31, 2011 Eli Edward Peterson decided to join our family. He was two weeks earlier than expected. We went the the hospital in the morning and they checked Lizeth and sent us home. I headed back to work and Lizeth went home to suffer for the day. We returned to the hospital that night and the little guy was ready. It seemed like no time and he was out. We all were shocked to see his size. He was a little 4 pound 6 oz baby. For some reason he was not developing correctly. He was born 2 weeks early but doctors said it was as if he was 8 weeks early. The good news was he was well developed. Just little. He had a few issues that kept him in the hospital for a few weeks but we are very happy to have him home now. He is pretty awesome. He is a great sleeper and really mellow. Leilani has been absolutely incredible with him. She is always talking about how she loves him and how cute his toes are. He will be well taken care of by his big sister as the years go by.

Here are a few pics of him. I will get back on this blogging thing and put much more up in the weeks to come. Most of these pics are from his time in the hospital. We did a good job of getting out to spend time with him a couple times everyday while he was out there. The nurses and doctors were amazing and made it a good experience for us.

This is the foot that Leilani is so in love with.

Leilani was not allowed in to see him. We got an awesome nurse one day that bent the rules and made this special moment happen. She was in love!!

The little guy all loaded up and ready to come home.

Leilani and Eli!!!

Ok, so I know it has been a very long time since I have posted anything on here. I have so may pictures that I really am not 100% sure where to began. I noticed that the majority of my pictures from the past few months involve Disneyland. I figured I would just grab a few of those and toss them on here. The pictures are in no real order and are from a few different trips over the last few months. She has fallen in love with the place and now asks to go on a daily basis.

We had a great time there with family. Leilani really enjoyed playing with many of her cousins while there. She also loves to get to meet the princess's.

Oh and as a side note our second child is due on June the 14th and it is going to be a boy!! :o)
Leilani is really excited about getting a baby brother.

Alright... Let's see if I can get back to doing this blogging thing on a regular basis.
