Earlier this month, Jaxon hit another milestone.

According to his parent's Facebook page, Jaxon was able to suck on a pacifier. His parents had been working with him to show him how to hold the binky.
The Buells hope that this could be a sign that they will be able to eventually remove Jaxon's feeding tube one day.

Just this week, his parents have seen more control with his body and arm movements. He's also interacting with his toys.
Jaxon is cuddling with his friends! We have noticed improvements with his arm motions and body control lately and he continues to get better in interacting with his toys. #JaxonStrongPosted by Jaxon Strong on Monday, February 15, 2016
The Buells announced on their GoFundMe page that they will be closing down the online fundraiser soon. While a date hasn't been set, they have so far raised more than $173,000 to help pay for Jaxon's medical coverage.
They will continue to seek donations directly.
