Oh Gravity!

Pin It Now!
"OH GRAVITY, WHY CAN"T WE SEEM TO KEEP IT TOGETHER? SONS OF MY ENEMIES, WHY CAN'T WE SEEM TO KEEP IT TOGETHER?" Those are just some of the Switchfoot lyrics (Elijah's FAVORITE band, and luckily for us, our favorite too) Elijah SCREAMS (just like the band does) around the house. Yes, Elijah's Switchfoot obession has been renewed with their latest CD, which Shiloh got for Christmas, along with Switchfootage 2 (the DVD of them making the CD and touring). Elijah likes to watch it whenever we will let him. Around our house, we don't play dress up or doctor we do Switchfoot role playing. "Mommy, you're Jon (the lead singer) and I'm Tim (the bass player). "Daddy you be Chad (drummer)". And then we switch it up. Sometimes it is hard for me to keep track of who I am. He talks about things he sees in the DVD (like when Tim eats a spoonful of mustard to get rid of hiccups) as if they happened at our house just the other day.
These are some pics from Elijah with Jon and Tim and Chad. We took him to their concert in March and he got to meet all the guys after the show. Loved it.

The other night Elijah was supposed to be in bed. We heard a moan of sorts. Elijah had wedged himself between the wall and his headboard. "What are you doing Elijah?" Shiloh asked.
"I am staying up late, like Jon and Tim." Elijah replied casually. (Jon and Tim stay up late on the DVD writing a song.)
"Well, how late do Jon and Tim stay up?" Shiloh wondered.
"Five more minutes." Our Switchfoot groupie replied.
