Happy Birthday Mimi!

Last night we all went out to Cafe Adobe for my mother's birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!) Judah had a blast! He gave her a birthday kiss :) His steri strip was coming off during bath time and I decided not to put one back on. I wanted everyone to see how handsome he looks without his mustache! :) Enjoy the pics! Slobber and all!

6 Wks Post Op

Judah was 6 weeks post lip repair Tuesday! I took his steri strip off Monday morning and didn't put a new one on until I heard Dr. Mulliken's thoughts on the pictures. I was so excited to be able to stare at him all day without the tape :) Well, Dr. M's reply was "lets continue the steri strip for one more week"....Ahhh!!! That was a bummer.

I have tried giving him a sippy cup twice..he's not liking it AT ALL. He is too in love with his bottle..

Looking too cute at church last night..I had to take a picture...of course ;)

I had to get a pictur of this...he had BOTH thumbs in his mouth! lol One is just not enough!

....and this one is a- just for fun- "bonus"

Blast From the Past!

I realized I don't have many pictures of Judah from the beginning.
So, here he is! Before the latham...the NAM...and everything else. He did wear just taping about 2 weeks before these were taken, but that didn't do anything.

....and now :) Here are a few recent ones.

His steri strips haven't been staying on too long with his runny nose and everything (he has a cold) I had to change it today it was covered in peas, bananas, milk..the works! Anyway, I almost cried. It's like this is all a dream...he is healing so miraculously..There is NO denying it...God has had His hands in this family through EVERYTHING and He is finishing what He started!
I do not take lightly all the prayer and tears that have been sent on our behalf. I know they have carried us through..and are carrying us still. We are so blessed to have each of you in our life.
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you, and love you all.

Just for fun :)

4.5 weeks post!

God is good! Here are photos taken Saturday September 5th. Judah is actually 5 weeks post op today.
Dr. Mulliken has such good things to say. "There is no evidence of scar hypertrophy (thickening/reddening)....well done" All the glory goes to Jesus! He is our healer! I am so amazed and so blessed. My God is awesome...
We still have to keep applying the steri strip. I will keep you updated. Thanks again for everything.
We love you all

2 more weeks!

I am so excited for Judah's lip to be totally healed! Then I can take off the steri strip for good and enjoy that beautiful smile God has given him!
Mom and dad went to Colorado without Judah...he didn't seem to miss us too much. I expected him to be so excited to see us (we were gone 3 days!) but he didn't mind us being gone at all! He was in good hands with Naina and Papa...oh how he loves his Papa! No matter how upset he was, in an instant Papa turned that frown upside down! :) It's ok...I see how it is Udi. I missed him terribly...but it was really nice to have a break. Colorado was absolutely beautiful in every way! I am in love!
