MEET EZRA: THREE MONTHS OLD


Big brother Judah got the majority of our attention over the weekend for his third birthday, which means I'm a bit behind on Ezra's three month post. So here it is! With so much focus on all his medical issues some of Ezra's other milestones haven't been given as much attention. So let's talk about them. Let's see, first off, Ezra can be quite the little chatterbox at times which is so adorable. We have yet to have a good crack up session, but I imagine it is on the horizon (can't wait!). Ezra still sleeps in our room. By this age Judah was already in the nursery because it was impossible for me to sleep between feedings and daddy said, enough is enough! But with this little guy and all his troubles, sleep or no sleep for mama, I can't bear to have him out of my sight. Ezra seems to be a bit of a late bloomer in his gross motor skills, but has been doing a bit better with tummy time and head control this past week. Our theory is that with all his blood issues, he's quite a bit sleepier than most babies and prefers tummy time for relaxing rather than exercising ;)



I don't know if I've really explained it before, but a big concern with all of Ezra's blood issues is the risk of spontaneous bleeding. It's a very frightening reality to live with on a daily basis, but this past weekend we got brave enough to take our first trip away from home to the coast. It is so scary for us to be too far away from our doctor/hospital, but thankfully for a moment all was well with the world, and he did just fine. We had a great time spending the day together, just the four of us :)
