Baby Thomas

Meet Thomas, he is my very small, very new baby  boy who has joined my baby club. this little chap already has  a journey many people in a life time will not have to go through, Thomas has A cleft lip, sometimes referred to as a harelip, it is an opening in the upper lip that can extend into the base of the nostril.  A cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth. He is to go and have his first operation at only 16 weeks old.  The incidence of cleft lip and palate not associated with a syndrome is one in 700 newborns.  Native Americans have an incidence of 3.6 in 1,000 newborns.  The incidence among Japanese newborns is 2.1 in 1,000.  The incidence among whites is one in 1,000 newborns.  African Americans have an incidence of 0.3 in 1,000 newborns.

Thomas came in the day after valentines, i was going to post my valentines baby shoots, i know i have a few mums out there waiting to see them, but im not!….  I will however, wish you a whole year full of love.  Full of blessings.
Babies are love.  I’ll share this beautiful baby Thomas, with you today… instead of hearts and flowers. I think he is more precious. x
