May God, the source of hope, fill you completely with joy and shalom as you continue trusting, so that by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh you may overflow with hope.

Eliana has a lot of great people in her life to learn from. For instance, in the midst of trying to find a sippy cup or bottle that Eliana would use without crying, we learned from her Aunt Brandi that it's possible for babies to drink from the bite valve of a Camelbak.
From her cousin Cass, we learned that Camelbak makes special bottles just for kids. Here's Eliana's. She doesn't know it yet, but someday she'll be so excited that she has a bottle like Cass'.
Cass also taught us about the special button, which helps little fingers pop the straw open. Eliana isn't there yet, but when she is, Cass will make a great teacher.
Her papa didn't really contribute to her water bottle, but he sure helped with her good looks. Here's Eric at 9 months.
And the screaming? Well, we're not sure where she gets the screaming. It might be an Eliana original. Here's a very tame version.
