Ain’t nobody got time for DAT!
Reks 1 day after his cleft lip repair! I can’t even see him in person as at the hospital I’ve caught a nasty virus and have had to be separated from mum and son :-( its going to be a hard few days especially as they are going home later :-( xxx
Our baby boy Reks was born with a cleft lip and palate. His first op is January 2nd, we’re heading up into hospital new years day. We’re going to miss his massive smile.

“You are gonna beat this world. I know you will. You are smart, and you are strong, and you are so brave, and I love you. You gotta do what’s right, baby. You promise me, you’ll always do what’s right. It’s so easy to do the wrong thing in this world. So if it feels wrong, don’t do it, all right? If it feels easy don’t do it. Don’t let the world spoil you. You’re so good. You’re my sweet boy. The best thing I ever did.”
Aww thank you! Yes he is :-) just not looking forward to all his ops :-(
Its fucked up how much I wish there was a Zombie apocalypse. I can’t decide whether its the adrenaline of trying to survive that makes me excited; or because technically I’ll be legally allowed to kill people that have turned.
Yes yes, I know that millions worldwide and loved ones may die, but lets face it that’s nothing new is it? I’ve always said that I would rather be taken from this life in combat, rather than illness.
I blame The Walking Dead for this….damn you….
Reks is just over 8 weeks old now and he’s absolutely amazing, but I was never prepared as a father for how difficult it would be! Things are getting easier now, but finding the time for any normality is really hard. I work full time and also have my own business, so finding the energy is so hard. My partner has also had post natal depression, which has been a struggle….but luckily shes starting to get better now. I’ve been under so much pressure to look after everyone and also myself!!
Reks also has a cleft lip and palate, so this has also added to the strain. Feeding was not easy to get use too, as he has to have special bottles and teats because he cannot suck. This also means breastfeeding was a no no too….
I would not change a thing though, he’s just a amazing and seeing his exaggerated smile everyday just makes it more worth it. His operation for the lip repair is on 1st of January; New Year, New Lip as I say.

I was looking in the cleft lip tag. I am getting nervous that Landon’s surgery is coming up quickly. And since the skin has grown more people now ask about his lip (but let me repeat….I LOVE when people ask questions vs just staring). I…
Can relate to nearly all of this!
