24 Hours Post-Op

Beaudrick did really well last night. At about 3am I heard him cry and went to pick him up, I was terrified to see he had worked his arm restraints off and was trying to roll over onto his belly. He was rubbing his mouth and nose against his blankets. After I removed him from his bed, changed and feed him, and gave him his pain meds, I laid him back down, but could not sleep in fear of him scratching himself.
Yesterday as we walked through the door to our home, the girls ooohhh and aaawww'd him. Then Alaena made the comment "He looks like a different Beaudrick, He doesn't even look like the other Beaudrick" This is true. I just stair at him in wonder, wondering what my Lil Man will look like a few weeks from now. I guess only time will tell.

Waitng For Surgery

Here I am waiting for surgery. Mema, Mar, Auntie Rahni, Auntie Darcie,Daddy and Mommy were all there for me. Because I had to fast before my surgery, I was very hungary. I was crying and screaming for food. Daddy, Mommy and Mar prayed Jesus would fill my tummy, and I stopped crying, went to sleep, then woke up full of smiles and laughs. Every one in pre op was amazed how happy I was. Thank you Jesus. You heard our prayes again. The picture of Daddy and Dr. Wong, was because Dr. Wong wanted a picture of my smiles even though I was hungry. Amazing!!!

The New Me

Here I am after surgery. I did very well, and Dr. Granger Wong is AMAZING!!!! My cut is so small and looks great. I'm a little swollen but this will get better in a few days. Dr. Wong repaired my cleft lip, and did a nasal repair to match my other nostril. I'm still sore, but know this too will get better. Mommy says I look like a big boy now. I cant wait to show her my new big boy smile.
Since I've been home, I've had 5 visitors and plan to have a few more over the next few days. Thank you all for your love and support. You are the greatest friends ever. Thank you to all the ministry of TRC. Your prayers helped Me, Daddy and Mommy. We love you all. Your the GREATEST!!!!!

More Plane Pictures

of my sissy's and London

Finally a picture of me on the plane, and a cute picture

PEAK and Grandpa's Tractor

I flew with Raya, Hunter and Mommy to Tulsa OK. Mommy and the girls laughed a lot. Even on the plane they were laughing so hard, people kept starring at us. They tried to take a few pictures and kept cutting my head off, so mommy finally decided to stay out of the pictures and took some pictures of just me and the girls. While in Tulsa, I went to church every night. Mommy said it was really good, but it hurts my ears, and I prefer the foyer. Maybe when I'm bigger, I will enjoy it more. I did however enjoy going to GG's and Great Grandpa's. I got to sit on the same tractor as mommy did when she was little. Grandpa owns over 100 acers. I cant wait until I'm big enough to run around and "explore" the land. Here are some pictures of me on the plane, and on the tractor.

Holding My Thumb

As I mentioned before, Beaudrick loves to hold my thumb while eating. As I sat here feeding him, I had to take a picture of how he eats. Oh how will he eat the next two weeks without holding my thumb? Ok, time for another meltdown.

Sweet Baby Boy

A few more pix

Here are a few more pictures of the Lil Dude

17 Hours To Go

Less then 17 hours until surgery. Beaudrick has remained healthy and is physically able to have his surgery. I have very mixed emotions about his surgery. We cant wait to get past this part of his little journey, but will desperately miss his "wide smile". Today Scott Andrew Photography took some of the most amazing pictures of our Lil Man. I took a few pictures myself, seeing that this is the last day of Beaudricks first look.
Dr. Granger Wong (Beaudricks plastic surgeon) explained to me, that Beaudrick will still be cute, just a whole new different kind of cute. As a mom, I dread seeing the Lil' Man go through this surgery. I cant handle the sight of blood, or see my babies in pain. To see both is already breaking my heart. Beaudrick is such a happy baby, and he LOVES his hands. I have no idea how we will keep him happy in his little arm restraints. Every time I feed Beaudrick, he holds on to my thumb, while I hold his bottle. I will miss this, but know it is only temporary. Please help us pray God keeps him safe during surgery and gives him an easy recovery. I will try to post updates as I get moments of spare time (which is not often). Until then, here are a few pictures of our perfect Lil Man.

Welcome To My Blog

I made my grand entrance into this big ol world on March 30th. I LOVE to surprise my Daddy and Mommy. My first surprise came to Daddy and Mommy in September of 2008. Mommy thought she was sick, and after a couple of days of feeling ill, she realized Jesus had blessed her with one more baby... ME... My Second surprise came came about 4 weeks later, when Daddy and Mommy where told they would FINALLY have a Lil' Man... ME... My third surprise came January 8th 2009. I had a unilateral left cleft lip. My mommy seen it immediately on the ultra sound. After the Doctor comfirmed my Mommy thoughts, she cried alot and was very sad. What she didnt know, was how much joy I would bring her with my "wide" smile. Jesus made me perfect in every way, and Mommy cant imagine me any other way. My Daddy is so strong, he knew from the beginning that I would be OK. He was very strong for my Mommy. My Daddy continues to encourage my Mommy as I get close to my surgery day which is only 13 days away. Everyone in my family loves to see my smile. They think I'm just the cutest thing ever. Maybe it's because I really am. :) That is the one thing they ALWAYS say they will miss after my surgery. They are always taking pictures of me so they can remember my adorable smile.
Please pray for me, that I stay nice and healthy so that I can have my surgery as planned. Mommy plans to keep you all updated on my progress, she also plans to post all of her favorite pictures of me before my surgery. I know, she's a little obsessed, but what can I say, I'm cute, just the way I am. :)
