And the winner is...

For best smile, best laugh and best all around baby!

In honor of the Oscar's tonight, we thought we would post some video footage of our little guy.    Jacob is 10 months old today!  The time continues to fly by and he is doing so well.  Click on the link above to see the video.

We did have a little scare this week though, which involved our first trip to the Emergency Room.  On Friday morning, Jacob had a small seizure in his right leg.  He was awake and alert through all of it and it didn't really seem to bother him.  But because of his history, we have been told to look out for seizures.  After calls to the pediatrician and the neurologist, we were advised to go to the ER.  They did a CT scan and an EEG, drew some blood work and gave him an IV.  All of these things did not make him very happy or allow for a nap.  After 5 hours, we were discharged home with a prescription for anti-seizure medicine and close follow up from our neurologist.  In the grand scheme of things, it really wasn't that bad, but it was a reminder that Jacob is special and needs some extra help.  

Other than that, Jacob is doing very well.  He continues in physical therapy and is now even able to stand and hold onto the table or couch with support.  We're still working on hand and knees as a precursor to crawling.  He eats everything and loves munching on Cheerios, bananas, and whatever else we put in front of him.  The next step will be more table food so he can eat what mom and dad are eating too.  He is up to 20+ pounds and definitely on the tall end of the growth chart (wonder where that came from).  

We thought we would be able to write this 10 month update from our new house.  Unfortunately, there have been several delays and our closing date has been bumped at least 4 times.  We have been eating off paper plates for the last week and that will continue until at least March 9th.  We are so tired of living among boxes and just want to be in our new house so we can get settled and move on with our life.  

Please pray for us as we continue to wait on our house and for Jacob's health.

  1. That photo is a riot! He's been sitting up smiling all morning and just munching on Cheerios. What an amazing little guy you have. He is blessed with pure joy, and I pray that he will continue to be so happy for all his life.
