MEET EZRA: 10 MONTHS OLD
This little sweetheart turned 10 months old a couple day ago. It was a rough week, but for a good reason...Ezra's oncologist okayed resuming vaccinations! (The decision to resume was based on his blood counts being within the standard range last week). It's crazy, with all the horrible things he has endured, that these shots had such an affect on the little guy...but he was pretty miserable. Thankfully he seems to be back to his sweet, happy, easygoing self, and we are thrilled that we are starting to make up for lost time with his missed vaccinations. Hopefully in a month or two we will cautiously reenter society ;)
As far as milestones go, Ezra is babbling up a storm these days, loves clapping his hands, and rolls everywhere he wants to go. He has some work to do with his core and upper body strength, so we have initiated Early Intervention support to help us with exercises to improve his strength and make sure he is staying on track developmentally. The best thing about EI is that they come to our house! No packing up the boys and scrambling out the door to get to the clinic on time, we get to experience these appointments in the comfort of our own home.
Happy 10 months little buddy! You are the sweetest little fighter we know and we love you so very much.
PS - Our friend Kasey shared this video on Facebook this week and we found it to be SO encouraging, you should watch it too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9ZcN_6wzp8
PPS - Ezra's buddy Braelyn and her family could use some extra prayers in the next few weeks, please send your love their way!
