If you have been following along on Beau’s journey with diagnosing his microform cleft then I wanted to give you an update! I have to say the messages that have poured in from other mothers, just like me, searching for answers that nobody seems to have has been amazing. I may not have the answers for your journey but I hope you atleast find comfort in knowing your concerns deserve to be heard!

As I mentioned in my last post (found here) it took my husband and I pushing to see a specialist before we got any real answers as to what the scar like feature and uneven nostrils could be caused from. Once we got the possible Microform Cleft lip diagnoses we were referred to a plastic surgeon. We had that meeting and it was so refreshing to sit with him. Finally someone who knew exactly what they were looking at and HAS SEEN it many times before. We finally were able to ask questions, get answers and ultimately learn what our options were for our boy.

The doctor confirmed that his lip was in fact a Microform Cleft lip and it definitely is  just cosmetic in that there were no other health concerns surrounding his condition but that it was still noticeable enough that he would suggest surgery to correct it (if that’s what we wanted.) I felt so torn in that moment. I asked him as a father what his thoughts were and he said if it were his son he would 100% correct it because he knows he can improve the microform cleft features. I kind of decided right as he said that that we would go ahead with the surgery. I just kept thinking about ALL the things my boy is going to be insecure with growing up (whether we raise him confident and strong or not) but that if this doctor really can improve the scaring why wouldn’t we go ahead and do this for him now. It would be selfish of me to let my love of him just the way he is alter a decision which could benefit him in the long run. Having a doctor I immediately trusted was super important too and I felt that trust right away!

SURGERY is now set for the end of August. We have a date and a plan and it is all moving forward. My nerves are still on high and my anxiety is strong but I know we will be in great hands at the children’s hospital. Please keep Beau in your thoughts or prayers if you’re the praying kind. We sure could use it all! Thank you for following along! Please feel free to ask any questions if you have them and I am happy to answer.

  • #morethanmamahood // From as early as I can remember I wanted to be a mom. I had the amount of kids and how old I wanted to be when I was done having them in my head. I put it out into the universe on multiple occasions. The universe more than reciprocated my dreams by giving me the most incredible man to create a life with! But just as much as I wanted to be a mom I also wanted to follow my creative dreams too. It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I realized I could do both. I was capable of creating exactly what I always dreamed of. This blog is more than just sharing products I love, it’s the creative outlet that I need to feel like me. I enjoy spending way too much time throwing a party that my friends can enjoy, or decorating a space I can share with family. I love helping brands that I adore to showcase their products so that other parents can be made aware of them. To create endless inspiration. This stuff makes me feel like me and nothing more! So I may be a mom but I’m also following my dreams ✨ I’m so thankful for the opportunity to team up with @wearingmomjeans (and some other amazing mamas!) on this ‘More Than Mamahood’ project and you can see the video we participated in on her page now! If nothing else I hope this opens your eyes to the possibility and happiness that you are deserving of, mama 💕 #motherhood #wereinthistogether

Their reaction will be part of a fun project I’m working on AND part of the big surprise I’m working towards being able to announce SOON ✨ Thank you for all your support, I’m just as eager to get talking 🥰 #underthestairsplayhouse #kidsinteriors
  • I am at a loss of words for the amazing video @isbellfamilyfilms put together for me using all the random videos I had in my phone from our vacation! These videos would have otherwise gotten lost in a sea of other videos but instead they turned them into this priceless family montage that we can enjoy for years to come! If you want to turn your random videos into something this beautiful don’t hesitate! Isbell Family Films works wonders 🎥✨I linked the full YouTube link in my stories as well! #familyvaca #familyvideography
  • Just two little boys looking more and more like big boys 😭💙 Remember when they were just born!? That was yesterday right? Knowing they’re my last two makes this whole growing up part even harder and so bittersweet! I’m so content being done with the baby phase of our life but watching the baby in them slip away is hard too. It’s such a weird place to be in. But we’re done. Totally done 🤣 Did you know when you were done having kids? I’d love to hear below! 👶🏻 🍼
  • Happy first (official) day of summer! We may have been on two summer trips already but we’ll still celebrate the #firstdayofsummer because we just love summer that much ☀️ #beachdays #summervacay
