Elijah update...




Elijah (held by his "Bubba") in his Spider costume at Halloween, he wasn't crazy about it.

Elijah is doing great. He is coming right along with all of his therapies and is even starting to tolerate textured foods now. He is cruising around in the playpen, and in a walker. He babbles alot but isn't really talking  alot yet. He will say mama, dada, nana, bubba (that is his big brother), and he tries to say Alex, that comes out as "aaaaaaaaaaaluh"! He can use sign language for "more" and "mommy".  He is extremely bright but is somewhat locked in due to his motor delays.
Elijah weighs 24 lbs now, and is quite a little butterball! He is such a blessing, and I am blessed that God chose me to be his mommy!

Elijah should qualify for early preschool services through the school system when he turns two, it will be so good for him to be around other children and receive his therapy at school, I think that school will help with his language skills.

I guess that is all for now I'll write more as soon as I can! :)
