Eli is 4 months old!

Today Eli is 4 months old! Where has the time gone? It’s funny – some days it feels like it was just yesterday he was born. Other days, it feels like a lifetime ago. What this little guy has had to endure in his short life is amazing. The strength in which he has overcome everything is inspiring.

Eli currently weighs 11 pounds, 6 ounces. He is finally out of newborn sized clothes and diapers! I think he even has a little roll on his, dare I call them, chubby, thighs! And he’s getting a little Buddah belly that makes him even more adorable.

Last week Eli received a special stuffed animal from his Nana. It’s called a Healing Helper. This wonderful company takes a chosen stuffed animal (they have ones for sale or you can send in one of your own), and performs “surgery” on it. Eli’s stuffed animal, a frog we named Corbin after his roommate at Seattle Children’s, has a “scar” (zipper) down his chest with a mended heart (with his name on it) inside. We chose a frog because the acronym for FROG, Fully Rely On God, has become sort of a family motto of ours throughout this journey. We thought it’d be a fitting choice for a lifelong buddy for our special boy. I have a feeling Eli will cherish Corbin the frog for many years to come!

And finally – after 3 1/2 months – Cody asked to hold Eli! He’s really starting to warm up to the idea of being a big brother. Moments like these are what make me the happiest mommy in the world.20130225-235352.jpg

  1. Isn’t it exciting when they actually can start fitting into 0-3 month clothes?! Camden is just now able to. I have enjoyed reading about your sweet family. Eli is an absolute doll! I’m excited to follow along!

    • Thank you! Your boys are adorable. Excited to share in this journey with so many other families. I love reading other blogs (like yours!) and relating to so much of it. Definitely makes me feel connected to people who “get it”!
