It was one minute ago he crawled up and snuggled on my lap.
It was one hour ago I heard him talking to himself in bed, after a nice long nap.
It was one day ago he covered me in slobbery kisses while playing tag.
It was one week ago he fell asleep while on a 4-wheeler ride through the snow.
It was one month ago he started insisting on doing "big boy" stuff on his own.
It was one year ago that our lives changed forever... because of his surgery.

How thankful I am for the journey we had to travel and even more thankful that time truly heals all wounds. I feel honored to be his mommy and to have learned from his silent strength.

If you were not here with us on our journey of craniosynostosis you can read more about it here, here and here.
And if you were here for the journey thank you for your love, support, prayers, and words of encouragement. We couldn't have made it without you.

I love my little Beckam and know that this experience was one that not only changed his life forever but many, many others as well.

We love you our little Beckam and are so thankful for you!

*yes, I did rewrite this post. The previous one just did not sit right with me and do the whole situation justice. It was truly an uplifting journey with little moments of heartache not one of complete despair and desperation. We truly felt the arms of the Lord around us the entire time and feel blessed to have had this entire experience.
