Being the only little boy in a world of little girl toys, is very hard for Eli. He envies all of his sisters pretty, shiney, cuddly things. So, finally we broke down and let Eli pick one of Madison’s babies to adopt as his own. He picked out a sweet little cabbage patch, which, of course, needed a name. We made several suggestions, but Eli, on his own, picked the name Mike. (For those of you who don’t know, Mike is a close family friend, that Eli has really come to enjoy playing with on his visits to his Grumpy and Granny’s.) So, we couldn’t help but post a few pictures of the new babe.
His sisters where happy to pose for this post-adoption ceremony picture.
