It is hard to believe that just 1 year ago today our sweet Elijah Jaiden entered the world at 6:47am. Weighing in at a whopping 8lbs 11oz with his head of dark hair!
Today Elijah is a little bit blonder, a lot bigger and a HUGE joy to our entire family!
I wanted to get a cute picture of him last night but the poor boy has his first double ear infection and has been sick since Saturday. He is spending his second day at home with daddy today and hopefully will make a full recovery by his party this Saturday!
We are so blessed by your presence. You have been such a wonderful addition to our family and you have 2 big brothers that love and take care of you. You have not started walking "officially" yet, but you are so close - just needing one hand to help steady you! We love when you close your eyes and start crawling like mad with a big grin on your face. You are always on the go from one toy to another, or trying to empty out our cupboards. You don't like to be told "no" and often continue doing whatever you were doing just to see if we will respond! You sleep through the night (except when you have a double ear infection) and love to cuddle with your soft blankie and your puppy. You point at everything and love to grab the glasses off of mommy's face. You are a great eater and you try everything that we give to you. Fruit and macaroni and cheese are your favorites I think, but I haven't found anything you turn away from yet! You make us smile every day and we are so grateful that you were chosen to be a part of our family. We prayed for a long time that God would bless us in this way. Your middle name means "God has heard". We knew that God had heard us and you are an answer to prayer.
We love you, Mom, Dad, Isaac and Gabriel
