one year olds

One year olds are much different than babies. I'm sure most of you know that. :) But seriously! They are sneaky! They are smart! They are creative! They have opinions! and so much more...

Hold on to those stones before you throw them at Wes because this is a funny story.

Yesterday I get my daily little Eli update email from Wes and he had quite a tale of the morning's events. He said that all the gates were up, the doors were shut, everything was in its place, and Eli was playing with some of his toys. Wes decides to lay down on the couch while Eli
was playing. Somehow the peacefulness of the morning, Wes dozes off to sleep. He said he woke up every few minutes and would look at what Eli was doing and then go back to his nap. Eli was very busy while Wes was sleeping. Wes said he was laying there asleep and could feel someone looking at him. He opens his eyes to find Eli staring at him just inches from his face, holding the remote control, and kind of had a smirk on his face. uh oh. what happened? Wes takes the remote to see what Eli decided to watch on TV. Eli knows how to work the DVD player so Wes thought he was playing a movie or something. He noticed that it looked different so he goes to see what Eli was watching... Eli had ordered a movie from On Demand! An actual movie! Which means he had to go to On Demand, choose a movie, hit watch now, and purchase now! and he did!! He chose Fly Me to the Moon somehow, which was one of the top choices when you hit the On Demand button but definitely not the first one! So, Eli cost us 5 bucks while Wes was sleeping. :)

Eli also loves our cell phones. He's called a lot of our friends and family members before. Last night I was telling Wes that Eli did something caused the clock to stay lit up on my phone all the time when it was closed. Then I looked down again and it said the word "browser" on it! I immediately opened my phone and Eli had connected it to the internet... which we don't pay for so we won't get on the internet on our phone... so apparently he submitted ok for that service for our plan now and we have to call and cancel that. again. 

Eli. It's a good thing we love you. :)

He just really wanted to watch a movie and took advantage of daddy's nap. :) What a sneaky, and smart, little guy!

I don't even think I know how to order the On Demand movies. Perhaps Eli could show me? Also, you've received a little award over at my blog, so check it out when you get a chance.

EK gets on the internet all the time on our phones. It is quite annoying!!!

CC said...

He knows how to work the DVD. And ordered a movie!!!!???????

Ack! Look out! This is one expensive baby!

And Wes shouldn't feel bad. My husband falls asleep all the time while "watching" the kids.

Haha, Just wait till he turns 2. Hope he enjoyed the movie.

My phone has a lock on it so they can play with it and not able to actually do anything. I didn't know that until Brier locked mine and I had to take it in. To unlock it is usually the last 4 digits of your number.

That is hilarious. I guess he really wanted to watch that movie! :)

Penny Rodgers said...

I am so bummed that we did get to hang out this weekend! I was so excited! By the time I had time to sit, you were on a plane back home. :(

Oh well, I'm sure we'll cross paths again!

Eli is more beautiful in person than he is in pictures! He's such a cutie!
