"Lub Do, E-Li"

Lias is a lover.

Especially of John.

As soon as the back door opens, Lias makes a bee-line for the door yelling, "Dada, Dada, Dada." John scoops him up and Lias gives the best, melt-into-you, hold-you-tight-and-never-let-you-go hug. If you're really lucky, he'll even rub the hair on the back of your head while he hugs you.

John's started calling him Eli lately, so Lias now thinks it's he and John's little joke to go back and forth, John saying "E-li" then Lias echoing, "E-LI".

I know I'm biased, but he just might be the cutest baby ever.

In the past few days, John's now gotten him to say, "Love you, Dada" - which sounds like "Lub do, Dada" and then John will echo with "Love you Eli" and back and forth the love fest goes.

I tried the other day and all I got was a "Lub do, Dada" so for now I'll just be happy to be in the "Lub Do" club even if he obviously loves John a little more.
