**The pictures in this post are from Elijah's third birthday party**
In these early years of Elijah's life, it has felt like some milestones would never come. And sometimes it still feels that way. But, before we know it, something we've been working on for ages clicks. And that something becomes the norm until eventually I almost forget we had to work so hard to get there. Elijah's proceeding at his own pace and on his own schedule - and that's okay.
He's three. I can't believe it. My baby isn't a baby anymore. I'm cherishing him even more as I remember that he's only going to be getting bigger. And remembering, always, just how far our little miracle has come.
