Our sweet little girl, Mia Kai, was diagnosed with sagittal synostosis (a form of Craniosynostosis) at four weeks old. Basically her skull fused together prematurely over one of her soft spots, giving the brain little room to grow. Rather than her head rounding out, it became elongated in the back and a ridgeline formed down the center of the top of her head. She had cranial reconstructive surgery June 28th which consisted of a neurosurgeon and plastic surgeon separating her skull then placing wires and dissolvable screws in her skull in order to hold it into place. They stitched it up with dissolvable stitches underneath the scalp and placed steri strips over the incision. The major recovery time typically only lasts for one to two weeks. The nurse told us that she's one of the youngest patients to undergo this procedure at Vanderbilt (she turned exactly 12 weeks old on the day of the procedure). This is her story...
This month has been filled with the widest range of emotions we've ever experienced. Our sweet little girl had craniofacial reconstructive surgery last week to fix her Craniosynostosis. We'll write more blog posts about that entire process but we wanted to document it for her three month mark. Countless amounts of people have been praying for us. Three different people even put prayers in the Wailing Wall for Mia Kai. We can't even begin to express just how much it has meant to us and how encouraged we've been through it all.
We've had a number of big firsts this month, including JD's first Father's Day (yay!).
Mia Kai is now two months old! I couldn't decide between photos so I went with both. ;) One obviously shows her dainty side and the other her playful side. She's beginning to develop a little personality and we're having so much fun! This month has been filled with exciting new things filled with lots of giggles, smiles and observations.
I am so thrilled to announce that the Awakening design won 4th place in the Minted Child's Play Fabric Design Challenge! Eeek!! It is officially up for sale on Minted in the form of table runners, curtains, lamp shades, placemats, napkins, pillows, and of course, yards of fabric. The best news? Minted is currently celebrating their 8th anniversary so everything is 15% off sitewide until April 4th at 11:59 p.m.!
Pratima from Craft Street Design contacted me a couple of months ago about her fantastic new print line. She offered to send me a free print from her collection to check out the concept and quality of the design. Her company makes cleanly designed inspiration posters, based on design principles Pratima learned while working at Apple.
Of course, I immediately leaped at that opportunity! After hour(s) of browsing through her site and debating between which prints I loved the most, I settled on this one.
