Just a quick update. Both the boys had follow up appointments with the eye doc today in Fresno. Noah is right on track and his eyes are just as a normal infants would be. We are so pleased with him so far, he is so active, bright, curious and already trying to sit up in our arms. He even tries to scoot himself out of his bouncer and recently has started trying to get out of his bath tub sling too. I have a feeling we will have our hands full with him!

Bless our Jonah. His eyes are a little more complicated. He doesn't need glasses yet but most likely by preschool age he will. Also, his right eye is pretty weak and the specialist is referring him to the local regional center to start therapy to see if we can't get it strengthened. If not, she said eye surgery will be necessary to work on that particular muscle which isn't focusing properly. If that day comes we will probably ask for a second opinion from the doctor who did his laser surgery in Los Angeles. We keep praying every day that he will have the opportunity to overcome the trials that face him. We have been excited as of recently he has started smiling at us more and cooing when we play peek a boo and giggle at him. It's always exciting to see your baby smile!

We are blessed to have them in our lives and thank the Lord that he entrusted them to us.
