An imaginary friend?

Does Eli have an imaginary friend? An imaginary friend that is a bully?? Today Wes and I went to Target to get a present and I noticed something on Eli's ear as I was running him into the store since it is FREEZING outside! When I got him in and all settled I looked closer and his ear was cut! Wes was finishing his lunch in the car so when he came in I showed him and he was shocked! What I think happened is that Eli cut his ear with his nails. I have to cut his nails all the time and sometimes they end up with sharp corners. His nails are so tiny! It's hard to get it all! His ear kind of looked like it was sliced open. Since Eli loves to pull on his ears and hair I am thinking that's what happened. 

I really don't know but it totally freaked me out... I don't like not knowing what happened! When I gave him a bath tonight I was cleaning the wound and he didn't even flinch. Then when I started to dry him off it starts bleeding
 everywhere... which I know is because it's near the head and those always seem to bleed the worse. But... I couldn't help but feel sick to my stomach. 

Then! Wes and I were playing with Eli on the floor and I noticed his toe! It seems that his
 pointer toe (I have no idea what the right name is) but his pointer toe is damaged!! Part of his toenail is gone and the tip of his toe is all red! What is happening?????? This story is out of order, because I cleaned that really well also in the bath and he didn't seem to care. Strange... and annoying. 

Eli's newest adventure is reaching as high as he can. He loves sitting by the back door and playing in that little area for some reason. Now, he has a new idea. He tries to reach the door knob, which he can, and messes with the lock. He can't quite reach it as well as he would like so he now climbs on top of the fire place and attempts to lean over to the door knob to reach it. awesome.


And to end this lovely post, I would like you to view a video. Eli really loves books, which is funny because he doesn't really like to sit and read with you, he just really likes to read all by himself with you near him. He's so sweet. Now, many one year olds (or almost one year olds) know several words. That is all well and good, but my son knows a whole different language. Jealous? Well, you should be. ... now if we can only figure out which language it is...

Poor little guy!! Our Joseph's nails are SO sharp- he used to scratch me all the time. I actually kind of enjoyed it until it started hurting. :/ It IS hard to cut them to a good length. I just realized today that he's due for yet another nail trimming.

I LOVE that pic of Eli reaching up at the door. His legs look so cute! :)

So the great thing is that he understands that noises mean something. He just isn't sure how to make them yet. He's doing great. Go Eli!
