Catching Up...a little update and such

Ok, so I am sorry for being such a bad blogger! This summer has been amazing and we have been so busy that I rarely took the time to actually sit down and blog! So for all of my faithful followers, sorry about that. But now that summer is over and we will be getting back on a more normal routine I hope to start blogging regularly again.

We had an appointment at Shriners yesterday and it went great. They don't want to do any prosthesis right now since he is doing so well with what he has! We will go back at 10 months old and reassess then.

Israel continues to amaze us with all of his abilities! He rolls around, plays with toys with his legs and arms as well as holds toys with his arms and hold his own bottle. He seems to be a very determined little guy and I don't think anything is going to hold him back. I thank God for the "go-getter" personality he has placed in Izzy. I think this personality trait will take him far in life!
He babbles, and laughs and smiles all the time!

We took Israel to the State Fair (Twice!) and he did great. He loves all the lights and sounds and fast moving things. He had his first take of a lemonade and of a milkshake (thanks to Daddy) and thought they were pretty amazing!

I still have no idea how time goes by so fast and how they just grow right before our very eyes, but I am trying hard to remember everything I can and enjoy each moment with my precious baby.

So glad to hear the good update on Izzy! What a precious baby!

I don't think I've ever commented on here, but I have been following this blog since Izzy was born. What an amazing journey you are sharing with us, and what an awesome testimony to our heavenly Father!
I praise God for little Isreal's life, and will joyfully continue to follow your family on here!

Love & Blessings to you, Turkington family!

It's amazing how babies and children with special needs adapt to things, isn't it?

I have cerebral palsy, but I've always found a way to get where I wanted, do things outside, etc.

He is precious baby.
