I just love him. He is such a precious child, still praying for healing. God is good and I think a miracle is headed your way.

Kellie said...

He looks like he enjoyed it! Praying for healing. You look great Patrice, so skinny!!

Army Wife said...

He is just absolutely adorable. Looks like he enjoyed his first trip on the beach. Seeing him play with his hands is just amazing. Something that may seem so "simple" or "ordinary" to one I know is a joy to you and Matt since he hasn't had that opportunity prior to recently. His face looks like it's healing well also. I continue to pray for healing and for strength and comfort as ya'll go through your day to day routine. May God continue to bless your family and enjoy the rest of your vacation.

those eyes...oh my goodness.

It is obvious by your faces how very very loved your sweet baby is by his parents. and so many many others.

Although I haven't commented in a long time, I am on your blog daily. As you all are in our prayers.

Megan and I were at Chick Fil-A the other day. I got a kid's meal. About halfway through the meal, I said "Oh no...I forgot! Patrice said I could've gotten an ice cream cone instead of a toy"

Much love
Jill

Aww he looks so adorable in that outfit and so relaxed on the beach.

I'm with Army Wife - I just love seeing his little fingers! I know that's such a big step for all of you.
Congrats on the latest 'first' - they are all so special! My little girl had her first 'real' haircut and graduated to a booster seat this week. They grow SO fast!
Hope that you continue to have a great vacation!

I haven't commented in so, so long but....just wanted you to know that I still read, pray and keep you, Matt and Jonah in my prayers, thoughts and heart every single day!!

It is so heartwarming watching him grow, smile, change and totally "chunk up"! He is such a blessing and has such beautiful blue eyes.

Happy that you are having a good time at the beach. I'm a SC girl, so our family loves the beach too.

Just wanted you to know I still read and pray daily for your family.

In the last picture Jonah's eyes are so clear that you actually can see the reflection of the clouds in them, it's crazy! I swear I could just eat him up. We miss you guys, but it looks like you guys are having a great time. Love.

Oh what a treasure! Loved the pictures and hope you are enjoying your week. Jonah is really growing and looks adorable. Continuing to keep Jonah, you and Matt in my thoughts and prayers. By the way, our week at the beach had 3 cars parked at the cottage with Jonah magnets on them. I am sure the cars there are covered also.

Nicole said...

So glad you guys are able to enjoy the beach... I hope that when you (and Jonah) look out at the ocean - you know a Great Big God created it - a Great Big God who can do all things! Continuing to pray for healing... Blessings from Indiana!

I hope you all are having a great, restful trip. I just found a blog about another family who has a 1 month old daughter with EB. I really believe you could offer then useful information with all that you have learned. Their web page is careforanabella.blogspot.com/.

Continuing to pray for you in NC.

Could he be any cuter? I think not! And was that fingers that I saw! How sweet! He looks like he was very interested in what was going on!

How wonderful it is to escape the real world for awhile!

Still praying for Jonah!
