Elijah really loves to wrestle. It isn't that easy with him anymore though. He weighs about 80 lbs now and can really wrestle. His newest thing to say is "I'm going to take you down girl!" He says it in this funny way and it just makes me laugh. I am trying to set aside time each day to just do what he wants to do and if that means wrestling than that is fine with me. Although I have to be careful, because he can really squash me if he wants to! I don't think he realizes how big he has gotten. We still have a long ways to go with behavior but for now we are in a good place and I have to be careful because HE may just take me down!
