Two Weeks Home

Today marks the two week anniversary of Mr. Elijah and I walking off of the plane in Joplin, and our family of four finally being together at last.  Our dear friend, Keri, was kind enough to meet us at the airport and take pictures of Eli's homecoming. Here are just a few:

We are all settling in nicely and figuring out how to function as a family of four. Each day we get to discover Elijah's personality a little bit more. He is full of laughs and baby babble, and is DEFINITELY ALL BOY!!! His game of choice is to bonk us on the head with his hands or a toy.

He is absolutely in love with Lili, and I am so thrilled to announce that she feels the same way about him.

We are so blessed that Elijah seems to understand (and LIKE) that Tobin, Lili, and I are his 'people'. His eyes light up when any of us walk into the room, and he is most comfortable at home with his family. He still gets quiet and reserved when we go out, or any time someone new is at the house. But each day is getting better as he adjusts to all the newness that has been thrown at him.

Because he has done so well in his bonding with us, we feel comfortable enough to begin the prosthetic process. His first appointment is later this month. With any luck we will be getting him fitted for his first prosthetic leg sometime this fall.

He is the perfect addition to our family, and we are forever grateful that God chose us to be his parents.
