Eli hearts sweeping

Eli has many obsessions. One of them is brooms/swiffers/anything that sweeps. I've spent the last few months sweeping up our porch - particularly from the hours of 5am to 7am (ugh, kid, sleep later!). And it actually sometimes seems like he says something along the lines of "boom, boom, boom" to mean "broom." 9Though I don't think that's his first word. His first word was either "Dada" or "la, la, la, la, la" to mean "light," another MAJOR obsession of his - the kid can spot a light/lamp/what have you from a mile away.) Today, however, was something new. Today we took the broom for a walk. This is how it worked: in one of Eli's hands was my hand and in the other was a broom (which I was holding on to at the top). We took about the longest walk he's ever done. And, to go with the sweeping theme, a street sweeper was driving through our neighborhood at the same time. So much sweeping! Eli was in heaven.

Have you gotten him a toy broom of his very own yet?
