Elijah will feed himself. He dips his fingers into his bowl of baby food goodness and licks it off. Then he discovers splashing in the baby food and making a real mess, but I certainly cannot get upset with him for getting friendly with food. So, he makes a giant mess, but he eats some of it and that's all it takes for him to get away with his splashes and giggles. (we have video of this...but you'll have to pester David for that post)
Eli has also learned to climb small steps solo. He has such balance that even a professional ballerina would envy. He's learned it for survival and uses it well.
Eli has been double flu vaccinated...as has Sophia. I've received seasonal only...David none. These are not easy things to come by this time of year so I'm very pleased with our progress on that front.
Eli has enjoyed fall break with his favorite sister. Sophia has entertained many friends in the last four days and Eli's been right in the middle of it.
Eli will babble away. I'm sure he thinks he is making sense. David thinks he's using complete sentences. We just love to hear his voice.
Keep praying for Grandma Bobbie's full health and for our peace regarding Eli's scheduled amputation in January. Please also pray for Elijah's growth. He remains so small for his age. Also, pray for Eli's sight that it would not deteriorate and his overall health. We need a 100% healthy boy for his January surgery...no hospitalizations!
I am deeply grateful for your friendship.
I love you all!
