Eli 4.11

A few Eli 4.11 stories for you as he nears the big version revision (July 31).

Eli's on a toy budget now (I'll tell you about that tomorrow). Because of that, he's suddenly developed an extreme interest in loose change. A few days ago, he held up some coins and said "Mommy, I'm finding money of mine out of nowhere!"

Yesterday he came into our room when he woke up in the morning, which he does every day. He crawled in beside Gloria and gave her a big hug and said "Mommy, you smell like perfume."

Gloria said "Thank you, honey."

Then he took another sniff and said "No, you smell like dried-up Play-doh."

Gloria bought some colored pasta spirals to make for Eli's dinner last week. There were three colors: green, orange, and "white" (plain).

I came out of my study and Eli was eating dinner. "Daddy, I LOVE colored pasta!" he shouted.

Two minutes later, I saw him meticulously picking through his pasta with his hands and pulling out individual pieces. "What color are you looking for, little man?" I asked.

"White," he said.
