Eli can wink

I'm sure you all enjoyed David's video as much as I did (see below). Can you beleive that wink? Since then, when we ask Eli to close one eye and someone who can wink shows him, he can do it. That won't be me, I CAN'T WINK. When Sophia was a tiny tot she winked by switching back and forth between winking each eye about 10 times. I was shocked. Looks like Eli has the RAMIREZ winking gift.

We are in pursuit of Elijah's recertification for his medicaid coverage. We have to go through some paperwork every year to keep him covered. This year, we are required to get him a psychological evaluation including an IQ test. Eli is so smart, but we're hoping he won't show his best skills during this particular evaluation. (wink, wink)

Eli slept better last night. We take it one night at a time and are hoping for more of the same tonight. Go Eli!

Grandma Edna (my mom's mom) is in the hospital again. This time she was visiting Dallas when she was admitted to a hospital there. She is in bad shape after a staph infection in that fluid around her lungs. Keep her in your prayers.

Love you all,

Wink? But of course. However are you going to flirt? Good luck on the recertification. It will be difficult to think of Eli as anything but brilliant. I am NOT predjuice but a great judge of love,heart and soul. And I love you all...G.Bobbie

OK Melissa you said "it's a Ramirez gift to wink" whose gift is responsible for him being Brilliant? Just joking; we all know it was you!

I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandma Edna, thoughts and Prayers go out to all of you...Viola C.
