Our flight leaves today for Boston. We will be there for 9 days for Riley's final lip repair. I'm dreading it so badly. I wasn't this anxious with her lip adhesion. I guess because it was a much shorter procedure and we were only gone for 5 days. I know that this has to be done and that it's what's best for Riley, but for some reason it's not making it any easier. The nurse in me is not nervous at all, but the mama in me is! Please join me in praying for safe travel, wisdom and a steady hand for Dr. Mulliken, and a quick and as painless as possible recovery for Riley.
We went to my brother and sister-in-law's house yesterday to celebrate Adam's 25th birthday a few days early. His birthday is Tuesday (Riley's surgery date). It was great to be able to have time with our family and allow them to see Riley's "first face" one last time. My grandparents from Mississippi were here and they hadn't seen Riley since she was 2 weeks old and were amazed with how much she's grown.
Oh, how I'm going to miss Sawyer! Maybe that has a part in my dread. Nine days without him is going to be tough! He will be thoroughly spoiled in my absence, though. He will spend time with Brock's parent's, my mom and my aunt. My aunt is taking him to the Georgia Aquarium so I know he'll have lots of fun.

I then took them to have portraits made on Friday. I cannot wait to see the proofs. The photographer said they should be up by this Friday. Later Friday afternoon, Riley rolled over from stomach to back. She is trying really hard to roll over from back to stomach, but can only manage to get on her side.
I just love this face! I'm having really mixed emotions about her surgery. We leave a week from today for Boston. This is my Riley. She is beautiful. I love her just the way she is. But I am also excited to see how she will look after her lip repair is done. I feel so much more reluctant, anxious, nervous this time. But I know she is in great hands (God's and Dr. M's) and that she will be beautiful.

div>It's been a while since my last post. Since then, my brother and sister-in-law welcomed their baby girl, Lilah (I'll post about her later). Nothing else too exciting has been going on. Just enjoying the summer and getting geared up for Riley's final lip repair on the 25th. I bit the bullet last week and put Sawyer in big boy underwear. He's been doing pretty good so far. Usually only one accident each day but he's still in pull-ups for naps and bedtime. Sawyer really could care less if he's wet or not. When he does have an accident, sometimes he tells me, other times he goes about his business in wet clothes. I'm proud of how well he's done though and hope by next week (maybe) he won't be having any more accidents.
Here are just a few random pictures from the last week of my precious two!
