YAY! She arrived yesterday..and Judah is loving every minute of her! (Well he was a little cranky at first only because he was hungry and tired)
He also had a "pimple" surface on his suture line yesterday...scary! We popped it and cleaned it just like Dr. Mulliken said and it is looking much better today..thank you Jesus!
On the phone with Aunt April

More stitches have been falling out! There are also more that are having trouble dissolving. He looks better every day!

I was sick this weekend and my supply is pretty low so I started him on rice cereal (which mostly ended up on his bib...) because I can't keep up!
My house is a disaster, my dog needs a bath (and so do I..) and I need to get ready to make dinner. I just wanted to share the good news! God is good!
I know I have been posting a lot of pics of him sleeping..but that seems to be the only time I have right now, and it's not much! He is still waking up wanting those chubby fingers... :)

Now we have to start planning our next trip to Boston...the 6 week check up :( Then the palate surgery! One step at a time....one step at a time...
No really, God is so good. I worry way too much, God provides, and then I'm back to worrying! Will we ever learn!?! God takes care of His children!!!!
The picture above was taken as I type this message...he is finally asleep! He has been waking up at 4 AM EVERY MORNING and crying for at least an hour because he can't suck his fingers :( Every time I go to get him he is just a sweaty mess from all the crying..I feel so bad.
Over all, he is doing really good. He is eating better and smiling all the time! I LOVE HIS SMILE!

I have not been able to get very good pics..we brought our camera but not the battery charger! :) So I have been using my cell.
Here is Judah right after he got out of surgery..They kept the gauze over his lip and packing in his nose until Thursday morning.
-cold saline over the gauze every hour to help with swelling
-cleaning sutures every 4 hours (we are still having to clean to make sure there is no crust)
Wednesday Judah was so swollen! His big eyes turned into little squints. :(
His lip is very bruised from Dr. Mulliken pushing the premaxilla in (he did Judah's gums along with the lip and nose.)
Top 2 pics- He is still trying to get to his hands for comfort..and fell asleep that way!
I am behind on my updates so I am trying to cram a lot of info into one :)
Dr. Mulliken never has too much to say but we see him tomorrow to make sure Judah's sutures are clean. That makes me feel good. Cleaning gets pretty tricky!
Over all I am overwhelmed..but happy! God is so amazing. He is working everything out so beautifully! I love Judah's outcome. I can't wait to see how he looks when the swelling and bruising has gone down. I do miss his smile..I just keep staring at his old pics on my cell phone.. He has been trying to smile lately!
I think that is a info over load... :)
I love all of you and I REALLY love the comments! It is very comforting knowing all of you are thinking and praying for us.

Well, enough of that. I am having the hardest time finding words today. So I will just talk about how the trip has gone so far...stress, lack of sleep, and extremely long days!
