Eliseo is now 1 !
Our Little Eliseo with the big blue eyes is now a year old! Saturday was his birthday and what a fun day we had! We spent the morning baking coffee cake and putting together an egg casserole for breakfast our church's sunrise service Easter morning. We also boiled eggs to dye and made resurrection cookies as we read and talked about the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Saturday we had one of Eliseo's favorite meals....Mac n Cheese...along with a homemade cake for supper.
How thankful I am the Lord gave us Eliseo. Every child we have is so special and unique! I remember about 11 years ago, I was sitting in a rocking chair in our living room holding Timothy, our one and only little one at the time. I was 8 months pregnant with Elijah and as I held Timothy, I started crying. Here I was about to have another baby and I just couldn't imagine loving a child as much as I loved Timothy.
And I still remember when they first put Elijah in my arms after his birth. I remember holding my new baby, looking at his face, and I clearly remember thinking, "Oh, I get it!" A mother's love isn't divided between her children...it is multiplied over and over again!
Eliseo is just the sweetest little thing. He's so easy going and all smiles!
While all of our children have a nick name, Eliseo kind of has the opposite. I've made up a song for each of our children and Eliseo's song is "Little Eliseo with the big blue eyes...". And that is just what he gets called.
I had Susannah up visiting Samuel with me in the NICU the other day. One of the nurses asked her if she liked her new baby brother to which she replied, "Yes, I have 2 babies now". The nurse asked her what her other baby's name was and she said, "Little Eliseo with the big blue eyes". :)
Samuel is doing super! All his buddies in the NICU (the ones born the same time he was) have gone home now, so his nurse gave Samuel a pep talk yesterday. :) Lord willing, he could be home as early as this week! I can't believe we could be going back home soon! How we've missed home!
