4 months old!!!

It's hard to believe that four months ago we were in the operating room, awaiting the arrival of Jacob Elliot Tuley. These past 4 months have been filled with many different emotions. Today (and most days really), we're filled with awe and wonder at our God and the Love that he gave us through Jacob. What a blessing. Jacob is a gift from God and we'll always be grateful for the miracle of Life that he is!

Jacob is amazed with his hands these days. He looks at them like they are the most intriguing things ever!
Here's a picture of three generations of JETs. This was the first time that Dad Tuley was able to hold Jacob, and hadn't seen him since after his second surgery. Needless to say, he was enamored.

Thanks to our friend Ryan and her family, Jacob has an activity mat...he LOVES it. He is reaching and grabbing all the animals hanging from the top. He especially loves looking at himself in the mirror...
Thank you for the continued prayers. Many of you continue to keep praying for Jacob, for health, for growth of right lung, for development, etc. We are humbled every day by the many many lives that have been touched through Jacob and by the numbers of people that tell us how they have followed his journey. May God always be glorified for the work that was done in Jacob's life.
