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!
