Happy 1 Month B-Day Beaudrick






I can't believe a month has already passed since we welcomed Beaudrick to our family. He is doing so well. He now weighs 7lbs 6 oz. His cleft lip panel appointment went well. We meet with a series of specialists who will follow Beaudrick into his adulthood. The first meeting was to get a starting baseline for him. His weight was taken so that they could see how well he eats and how fast he grows. He can have his first surgery when he reaches 10 lbs. This is bitter sweet because I don't want him to grow too fast, but I can't wait to be able to take him to church with me. My mom and sister have been a GREAT help with Beaudrick. My mom stays every Sunday night with him and Darcie stays every Tuesday with him. This allows me to go to church and get much needed strength from my precious Father.
Beaudrick will meet with a panel of surgeons and doctors on May 5th. At this appointment, every Dr. will see him and try to coordinate his surgeries so that he wont have to be sedated more than necessary. I was so excited to find the best of the best plastic surgeons for my little Prince. However, I love his wide smile, and will miss the look of his first little face. I have a ton of pictures that will forever be cherished. I will share some of the pics I took today for his 1 month milestone.

Shawna, He is a beautiful baby! 1 month already; time is going by so quickly, especially for your family. I am glad he is doing so well and will keep all of you in our prayers.
Yes, it is great that you found the best of the best for him, and I am sure they will do an outstanding job, but as I know you realize, no matter what they 'fix', he is an absolute doll now and will remaain so.

I am sorry if I am intruding but why can't you take him to church?

The pics are fabulous. He is too precious for words. Please know we are keeping your little prince in our prayers and believe God is going to take perfect care of this tiny angel. I just wish I could hold him and breathe that new baby, baby lotion smell. Nothing as sweet!
