Ephesians 3:20 "Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"

Well Thanksgiving went well! The bigger news is that Caleb took seven bites of mashed potatoes and one bite of my cheesecake. He hasn't really eaten anything since, but it was a wonderful Thanksgiving. However since Thanksgiving Caleb has put teethers in his mouth every once and while! He hasn't ever done that either-so a big step for him!
Due to illnesses, the therapists have not been able to come on a regular basis as of course they can't come due to Caleb's immunosuppression. But, once again, Caleb has proven how tough he is and has really started to crawl more. It is so awesome to see him do that. He also has started cruising just a little bit along our coffee table. He also has pulled himself up a couple times too. So we are hoping he will continue to become more mobile. I went into his room the other morning and I was so excited to see him sitting up in his crib. Yes, he has been sitting up on hard surfaces for awhile. But sitting up on a softer surface requires more muscle control and I was ecstatic to see him sitting up. We have noticed that when we are 'walking' with Caleb that he turns his right knee out. The physical therapist said we will have to keep an eye on this to see if it is just a stage or if it something due to his double hip dysplasia he had at birth. He also is keeping his feet in a pointed position, so we will be keeping an eye on this too. If they stay pointed, he may require some type of brace down the road so it does not impede him from walking.
Well I have to go bolus feed the little man so I will post again soon as there are still many updates.

God Bless you all!

God Bless Caleb!!
