Elijah is 8 Months Old

Joy!  Joy!  Indescribable Joy!
Elijah is a happy baby!  He loves to play, smile, laugh and blow raspberries!  
He is now eating by mouth several times a day, although he is still tube-fed twice a day.  He will take a bottle with a little juice but not with formula (can't say I blame him, that stuff is nasty!).  We would really like to get him taking more liquids so the tube feeding can be history.  He is rolling over both ways and loves to watch his siblings.  He still gets rather car sick, so he usually sticks close to home.  Physical and occupational therapy is three days a week, and still no speech path.  He has hearing aids for both ears, but they never fit.  He gets fitted, two weeks later the molds come in, and he has outgrown them.  Then he gets fitted and two weeks later, same thing.  Rather frustrating.  But it doesn't seem to bother Sweet Baby! 
Thank you for your continued prayers.
