Every day Elijah is becoming less of a tiny newborn and more of a big boy. He is holding his head up for long periods of time and for the last couple of days he’s been supporting his weight when I hold him on his legs. He continues to get stronger and continues to amaze me.
Last night was a new development because he didn’t enjoy his bath. The moment I started to lay him in the water, he grabbed onto the hair on the top of my head and held on for dear life. I was afraid I had made the water too warm, (I’ve been known to do so) but after checking it a few more times, determined the temp was fine. He cried through the whole thing and so his bath was extremely quick. Once he was dressed back in his PJs he was fine. He just didn’t want to take a bath last night; his cry sounded afraid and that he didn’t like it. Each day his personality blossoms and he tells us his likes and dislikes more and more. I hope he will still like his baths and last night was just a fluke!
Another thing he did last night was he grabbed my ear and took my earring out. Little stinker. J I guess no more little earrings for me since I don’t want to risk him swallowing one of them.
We’ve recently received the medical records for Elijah and me pertaining to his birth (upon our request). Reading them, I am again amazed at this little man and the miracle he is. It’s hard to read them and relive it all over again and it makes me so sad that my poor little guy had to go through so much. It also makes me so glad to have him in our lives. He is such an inspiration. He’s been through a whole lot and even with all that, he’s a happy little guy. He’s got a great little personality and I can’t wait to continue getting to know him ever better.
(By the way, the neurologist won't review his EEG until Monday, so we don't know until then. Annoying, but that's the way it goes)
