Miracle Baby Turns 1 | Baby's 1st Birthday Photographer, Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX




If you follow my blog you likely have seen this little guy make an appearance on my blog a few times throughout his 1st year.  Not only is he special because he's my nephew and my sister and brother in-law's first child, he also is a miracle!  You see T. was born with the worst form of Spina Bifida, Myelomeningocele.  My sister and brother in-law found out about their son's birth defect at their first ultrasound around 20 weeks of pregnancy.  Soon after the diagnosis they were given a list of risks such as still birth, hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) which can cause brain damage, and club feet.  The remainder of my sister's pregnancy she was closely monitored.  We asked everyone we knew for prayers.  God is good because T. was born at 39 weeks on October 28, 2010 a healthy 8 lbs. 8 oz. and 20 1/2''!  Due to his birth defect it required a c-section and it all went smoothly.  He was stable upon birth and a few hours afterwards was transported to a children's hospital.  Less than 24 hrs. after birth he had surgery to have the spinal nerves placed back into the spine.  T. was born with a small bubble on his lower spine with the spinal nerves inside.  You would never have known, he sports a very small scar that looks like a scratch on his lower back.  Dr.'s warned my sister and brother in-law to watch for signs of hydrocephalus, club feet, loss of bladder and/or bowel control, and were told that he may never sit or walk.  Well, this big guy of 26 lbs. has beaten all the odds!  He has developed perfectly over his 1st year and started walking a few weeks before his birthday!  You would never know by looking at T. that he has Spina Bifia.  October was Spina Bifia awareness month, go check out their website for more info.

He loves to clap, maybe because he knows he's beaten the odds.

He is soooo cute and I'm so glad that he is doing so well. He is walking which in and of itself is an absolute miracle. What a cutie pie and yes, I can see the family resemblance in him.
