I never entirely understood the saying “Home Sweet Home” until now. It is really great to be in our house and enjoying life again. The future looks brighter now that we’re home and Elijah continues to improve each day. I didn’t have to wake him up at all for any feedings today because he woke up all on his own. He had a lot of awake periods today, which hopefully means he’ll sleep more tonight. He kept us awake quite a bit last night and I had to remind myself that this is what I have been longing for. How quickly I forget!
Elijah seems to be getting into a rhythm all his own which is really comforting to me. It’s allowing me to relax a little more and not freak out as much about things. I’m starting to worry less about him getting enough to eat and starting to enjoy being a mom more.
We met Elijah’s pediatrician this afternoon. He seems like a really nice man and we’re glad to have him as Elijah’s doctor. Elijah is now up to 10 lbs. 10 oz. Another reason I’m not worried that he’s getting enough to eat; he’s huge! He’s already in 3-6 month clothes. The doctor said that physically he is doing well. His muscle tone is little lack, but my muscle tone would be lacking too if I didn’t move for more than a week. It seems that this continues to improve and I believe it will continue to do so. The pediatrician also said that since Elijah is doing so well nursing, that implies that he is doing well cognitively. It’s nice to hear that.
Thank you for your continued prayers. I believe that Elijah will continue to get better. How can I not believe it? God keeps answering prayers and it’s important for me to put my son in His hands. I think that every parent has to do that at some point because no one knows what the future holds.
By the way, I finally uploaded more photos of Elijah to our Photobucket site, so check him out. Look how far he has come! He keeps getting cuter and cuter each day! :)
