His First Step Caught on Tape

While doing "So Big!"
My little brave boy, who is afraid of nothing
(except doctors touching his face)
just out of the blue, took his first step!
I keep watching this and it makes me laugh every time!
I do not think the kid will actually walk
I think he will run
He's such a busy boy!

We are going to the doctor today for a 6 week check up-post kidney surgery
I'm nervous.
Please, could you spare an extra prayer for him and the mama?

We also need prayers, for his next surgery coming up
We meet with his plastic surgeon again the beginning of March
(we met with him last week)
He wants to do surgery end of March, first part of April
Which means his premaxilla, (that front part sticking out) 
needs to move quite a bit down and into his mouth in the right place.

His surgery will be on his palate.  Closing it.
He needs it done, and the doctors prefer doing it before 18 months, 
because it puts babies quite a bit behind in speech, without it done.

He'll then go from a bottle to a cup
and his food will no longer come out his nose!  (yay!)

Our prayer is for his premaxilla to move into place and for his surgery to be successful.
(you can see it has quite a bit to move yet)
I'll post another update as we get closer and we know more details

Thank you so very much for your precious prayers for my sweet baby!

Simeon's appointment went great!  
He can now be off the antibiotic he's been on since July!! 
He does not need to see the kidney specialist for 6 months!

Thank you for your continued prayers, they are such a blessing!

  2. Done! So cute to watch his fist step on video! Good job mama!

  3. Have I told you he melts my heart? Well, he does! Continued prayers for all of you.

  4. I had to watch that without sound (wrapping up at work) but it was still sooooo cute! And to see his sister put his hands up for him, and how proud of himself he was :)

  5. I have to watch it late with sound (Ava's napping) but SO cute and proud! Be assured of our prayers sweet Jamie! I know how worrying this can be, but in the end ALL will be well. xo
