Is it simply the role of the third child to just go with the flow? Eli has amazed us with his mellow demeanor. Hotels, pack 'n plays, airplanes, rental cars, teething while moving across the country...does anything phase this kid? He is log rolling and 'army crawling' on the floor these days, whatever it takes to get where he wants to go. I see a little gleam in his eye sometimes, maybe this mellow thing is temporary until he goes mobile. He is a big fan of the swing in the backyard and his brothers love to push him. They are still proceeding with caution around him. I suppose that's probably temporary, too.
