Eli's latest

Our dear friend Susie remains in the hospital recovering from surgery. Continue to remember her in your prayers.

Elijah is advancing. He says "this way" as he points to where he wants to go and when he doesn't get his way he throws a 2 year old's tantrum and I love it.

I'm so glad that I'm finally to a point where I can look back and remember when I wasn't sure he'd be able to do the things he can do now. When Eli was tiny, I had a dream that I was holding him and he dropped his beloved pacifier and I bent down so he could reach it and said "pick it up" and he did. I remember hoping with my whole heart that would come true one day...and it has. My next dream is to see him running past through the windows to the backyard.

He has figured out to let me hold him around the chest and he walks on his knees. I am certain he will be a quick learner when that time arrives.

David is looking to find Sophia a voice teacher. It is the main thing she tells us she wants as an extracurricular. She sings non-stop and I simply love the sound.

Eli loves Sophia so much. Today, we were outside and he desperately wanted me to take him up the hill to the neighbor's house where he was sure he would find Sophia. Sophia is actually at another friend's house and will be jubilantly greeted upon her return.

I love you all and I thank you for your continued concern for my sweet baby boy. He is an amazing kid.

Wanted to let you know that Missy Mitchell gives voice lessons if you are interested.

So proud of all that your boy is doing and am looking forward to the day we will see Eli running!

I can see him running past the backyard windows too! With his super cute glasses on, of course! Love those things!
