Answered prayers!!



I love that absolutely crystal clear drool from a baby... so sweet!

 
Isaiah James Hintz 7 months old:)
 


This precious little man has brought us so much joy over the last 7 months and we are sooooo very privileged to be his parents and family!

Last week this little guy had his first visit with his new pediatrician here at our new home... I was a little hesitant knowing that our previous pediatrician was recommending some intervention for Isaiah.

At his 2 month appt.  he was seeming to be slightly behind on development.  It didn't at all surprise me given that he was between 4 and 8 weeks premature or given his rough start in the womb...

At his 4 month appt... she was even more concerned but was willing to let us get resettled at our new home and then look into the what kind of therapies he might need...

Well, low and behold... I took him last week and he seems to be almost right on track... PRAISE GOD!!!

He is all caught up growth wise... you should see the thighs on this little man:):)  And he is doing really well with other physical milestones like sitting up, grasping, rolling etc...

We will see what the future holds for him, but right now we are rejoicing in the great news on this sweet precious little man. 

He has had a case of thrush, but besides some crankiness with that...he is one of the most easy going babies we have had... He goes to almost anyone... is a cuddler... eats great... smiles so easily...

He is downright precious and such a gift from our gracious God...
I love that even though he is biracial... I have to remind myself that he didn't come from me... I love that the longer we have our last 3 kids, the more I am in awe of the gift of adoption in our lives and even more so the gift of our faithful God adopting us into His kingdom! What a precious gift... and looking into the faces of Hope, Levi, and Isaiah there are constant reminders of that blessing!
