2. Elliot loves all music.

3. Elliot is in awe with his new baby brother and loves to pet his head.

5. Elliot likes to look at himself in the mirror – I admit; he’s darn cute.

6. Elliot thinks it is funny to annoy his sister by hollering “maa maa maa” for hours on end.

7. Elliot sleeps through the night, like clockwork (10 p.m. to 8 a.m. every night), unlike his new baby brother who doesn’t quite “get it.”

8. Elliot must sleep with his “suckie,” a cloth diaper that he adores.

9. Elliot tries hard to crawl...currently just like an inch worm – he’ll get there!
