1st Tooth!!

On February 6th, while in hospital, Noah got his first tooth! It is coming out at a strange angle in his top gum where his cleft is, but we think it's pretty cute! It's strange to see someone so tiny getting teeth. Sometimes we forget how old he really is.
Things are going well at home. The fundoplication surgery was a huge success. We don't know what to do with all those spit cloths anymore! He is doing well on the feeding pump and he is now 5lbs 11oz! If he continues to gain, in a couple of days we will reintroduce the breastmilk mixed with neocate and see how he does with that. I really hope things go well as our freezer is jam-packed full of milk! I am so thankful for a wonderful pediatrician and feeding specialist who are allowing us to be at home and working with us mostly over the phone.

Sometimes I think back, to what the drs. said when mommy was carrying you, and that you would die before you lived, and I remember how we hung on to the hope that only God can give. Your smile takes our breath away. What a joy and gift you are to us. love granny and grandpa

This is my first visit to your site. I'm a mum with a year old son with a cleft palate.

Noah is a lovely wee boy - what a gorgeous smile!
