God of the impossible

I want to share some amazing new developments with you all. Cameron, according to doctors, should be regressing quickly and losing what function he has. But I don't think our doctors are aware of all of the prayers going up daily for my sweet, sweet boy.

Last week Cameron sat up on his own twice and has done it a few times since then as well! He even started trying to pull himself up while in his playpen. Those are HUGE steps forward for Cameron. He hasn't shown any interest or progression on these things in quite some time.

This morning we are getting the boys ready to go to Houston for yet another opinion on Cameron's condition. We are going to Texas Childrens for the first time. The boys and I sat down for breakfast and I was trying to feed Cameron tiny bites of a breakfast cereal bar before his jar food and he absolutely refused it. He started throwing his head from side to side as if telling me no. This is unusual for him. I sat and looked at him for a few minutes and then decided to let him try on his own. So, I broke it into itty bitty pieces and placed 2 on his tray and I barely had time to take my hand away because he grabbed them so fast and crammed them into his mouth! 

If you don't know much about Cameron's condition this may not seem like too great of news to you, but it is! Cameron is currently unable to do the 'pincher grasp' and hasn't been able to feed himself little snacks. He only eats pureed baby foods and drinks milk. He has been trying to learn here and there, but it's as if all of the sudden he has woke up and is capable of so many new things!

Prayer works! Please continue praying for Cameron and our family. God is moving. Cameron is learning against all odds!

1 Corinthians 2:5 that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power.

Making Sweet Memories

This morning as Caden was running around in his underwear singing along to Diego on the TV Cameron and I were enjoying some great worship music. My sweet boy was just smiling as he watched me sing along and then started clapping with the music. He really loved it. Maybe next time Caden will join us :)
