Elihu James Aquila


Our Boy

So…obviously it’s been awhile since we last posted, since which our lives have drastically changed!  We brought home our son in early March and have filled all of our time to bonding with him.  He is thriving and gaining weight like a champ, much to the relief of his slightly anxious parents.  His pediatrician is happy with his weight gain and developmental progress since he’s come home.  Currently, we fill our days with his feeding schedule, playtime, and of course, sleeping!  He’s adjusted nicely to his schedule, mostly due to the wonderful NICU staff at North Oaks Hospital, where he spend his first 7 weeks of life.  Eli’s been through a lot and is an amazingly strong fighter with a great spirit.  We’ve been so blessed by family and friends, who’ve provided meals, gifts and endless prayers and support.  We are completely in love.  God is so good.
