We have had a very busy week since last Saturday. We had our welcome home baby shower with our family and a few hometown friends. It was wonderful! I think we had about 100 people and I even had family travel from out of town just to see our precious boy. Elijah did very well. If he started feeling overwhelmed he would whine and we would cuddle him. I think I only saw a few times when he just wanted Mommy. We are so very blessed to have such great family and friends so excited to see our little guy home!

Grandpa Steve with Elijah at the end of the day.

Elijah was more interested in the cake on the table than getting a pic taken.

Opening gifts
Aunt Amanda made his cakes (they were yummy!)

Elijah went to the pediatrician on Tuesday and they were so much better than the visit we had with our MD. He weighs 18 lbs 6 oz. He is still very congested so they checked him for rsv and it was negative and then they did a deep suction thing. They took him to another room and told us we would not want to see it. We could hear him screaming and it broke our hearts. I had a hard time not just running out to find him. When they brought him back he was sobbing and I held him and he went into shut down mode and fell asleep. Then we had to go get his blood drawn. PRAISE GOD...all tests show he is a very healthy boy. :) We are starting his shots over but I have chosen to wait another month before put him through that. We do have an appt with a ped. urologist in April.
Emilie had a 5th grade music concert this week. She auditioned for a solo and was chosen to play her recorder. She played Amazing Grace for the concert. We were so very proud of her. We did take the video camera but Don said it kept shutting off and so he only got her bowing and the crowd applause. SO...we had her play it again at home for Elijah and Randy (they stayed home together so as not to disrupt the entire show!) I am hoping this video works as I have never tried putting one on here.
Hoping you all had a blessed week and have a wonderful weekend.
