Quick update and a plethora of pictures!

Eli had his last ACTH injection yesterday! Woo hoo!!!! He has an EEG on Tuesday. Praying that the seizures are gone for good. He’s been a trooper through all of it. The appointments, the injections, the awful tasting medicines, the puffy cheeks, the insatiable appetite. He’s a rock star.

He sat up unassisted for the first time last Wednesday. These pictures were taken after an hour of physical therapy so he’s not very happy. Daddy, Linda (his super amazing PT), and I were quite excited. Every day he amazes us.

The beach was another truly wonderful experience. It was so nice reflecting on the past year with my baby in my arms watching his big brother and daddy play on the beach. It is exactly how I envisioned life a year ago when I fully embraced the gift of Eli and the path God had set forth for our family. Long Beach, Washington will forever be my happy place.

Finally, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommies out there – especially mine. You are the reason I am the mom I am. Thank you for your unwavering love, steadfast support, and constant friendship. There is nobody else in this world that I can laugh with like I laugh with you (especially at inappropriate times like the Starbucks drive thru! 😄). I love you! ❤

  1. Mornin Mel,
    Happy Mother’s Day to you too! I tried posting a comment and it kept coming up with an error. Probably operator
    error:) Now you know the joy and pure love of having your babies close to you! Watching you with Cody and Eli brings
    back memories of when you were that age. Seems like a lifetime ago but they are still so fresh and close to my heart.
    Some make me laugh and some make me cry but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Your boys are very blessed to have you
    as their mommy. You are a fabulous mom!! Keep up the good work and you will be rewarded when they are all grown up
    into amazing young men and they tell you what a great mom you have been.
    Thanks so much! You are the world to me, now and always!! I love you so much!
    PS. Driving through Starbucks will never be quite the same:))))))
    Mom
