39 weeks

Here is what is going on with Elisha according to;

The torrent of words your baby has been hearing since birth is beginning to work its magic, although his understanding of words far outpaces his ability to use them. His babbling has turned to jabber and is probably starting to sound more like real words, phrases, and sentences. Your baby thinks he's saying something, so respond as if he really is!

Your baby still comprehends more from your tone than from your actual words, though. He can understand when he's pleased you, so offer specific praise, such as "You did a great job picking up the rattle." The more you talk to your baby — while preparing dinner, driving, or getting dressed — the more he learns about communication.
Your baby's starting to understand the word "no," though he may not obey it just yet. For example, you can expect him to try to touch something even after you've said not to. It's best to use the word "no" sparingly, and when you do use it, follow it by removing him from the scene of the crime and introducing him to a new activity.

Elisha is doing great!

He has become increasingly mobile over the last few weeks.  Now he easily and quickly crawls around the house.  He pulls up to standing and walks around the room holding onto walls, couches, shelves, tables, and chairs.  He can let go of what he's holding onto and stand without any support.  He has taken a couple of steps here and there not holding onto to anything, but no more than 2 at a time yet, and not all too often. That said, we really think he is going to be walking soon, he is very close.

He now has his 2 center bottom teeth and I'm sure will have some upper ones appearing shortly.

He seems to finally be sleeping through the night all night every night in his crib in the room with Noah.  He still takes 2 other naps a day, about an hour each.

He has started saying mama and dada and knows that those words identify me and Jeremy.

He LOVES to play with his brother.  When Noah is with Jeremy or his mom for a few hours Elisha gets THE biggest grin upon seeing his brother's face or hearing his voice.  Our 2 boys love each other so much.  Noah always wants Elisha in whatever room that he's in and Elisha wouldn't have it any other way.

Here was Noah at 39 weeks.
