Elijah's Birthday

Eli turned one year old on Valentine's Day! I'm sure he had no idea why people were singing at him, letting him get frightening close to fire, and handing him boxes covered in pretty paper meant to be torn to pieces. But he seemed to enjoy himself nonetheless.

Here's Eli reading his new book from Grammy and PaPa.

"Thanks Maddie and Emerson!"

In addition to a birthday party, Eli also got his one-year check up with the doctor on Monday. The doctor was pleased with his growth. He is actually on the charts regarding his height now...his weight is still 0% but we're getting there. However, Dr. Bissey did find a heart murmur so we got a referral for a cardiologist and a referral for a physical therapist due to his lack of crawling and walking. Then 5 shots later we were heading back home, slightly heavy-hearted but overall hopeful.

He looks great Nikki! We'll be praying for his health. Thank you sooo much for the video of Micah! Hearing him burp and seeing him squirm made me cry and take in more the reality that he is real and not just a picture (I know sounds strange).
