Elijah is an Explorer…

…and I’m his tour guide! He has improved so much in his crawling skills already…in just one day. He’s all over the place and I love it. He actually crawled over to his toy bin today and took some things out! I’m so proud, happy, and speechless…okay, maybe not speechless. :) The point is, we’ve been waiting for this for a really long time and now here it is. It’s kind of hard to believe and so thrilling. It hasn’t come easy, nor has it come naturally, but here he is…doing it! You know how I always say that “he’ll get there”? Well, in terms of crawling, He Got There!

I’ve been on cloud nine today, teary-eyed from happiness, and feeling so happy to watch Elijah move and play. This afternoon Elijah’s Early Intervention OT was here and she got teary-eyed too when Elijah showed off his new skill (I didn’t tell her he could do it, so it was a surprise). Needless to say, Elijah’s OT and teacher were very pleased with him today.

I can’t help but think back to the moment when we were told that Elijah had “severe brain damage.” We grieved and wondered what our little guy’s future would hold. If only I could have seen a glimpse of what he would be like today…I think I would’ve felt all right. All I know is…I’m never going to let anyone tell me that Elijah won’t be able to do something. Nor will I hold him back. He’s amazing, he’s a miracle, and who knows what the future holds.

If you weren’t convinced Elijah was crawling by yesterday’s videos, check out today's crawling video below.
There s no denying it…our boy can move! Thanks, thanks, thanks for all the prayers!
