Guess What?

Hey, buddy... Guess what? You know what mummy is doing? Packing your favorite blankie and toy.
Why? know your forehead? Yeah that one right there in the mirror.....

I'm sorry honey, but the doctors are going to fix it for you tomorrow. I know that sounds scary and owy, but think about how handsome you will be! The girls are gonna dig you for sure.  Don't cry baby, you'll make me loose it too, and we are out of tissues.

What's that now? You think I'm joking? Hmm... well..... Uh..

You think I'm packing for the spa here?

Ok, baby, if you insist. Forget that doctor hospital junk, you and me, we are heading for a spa! And when we come home, boy baby, you are going to look and feel so good! Watch out world, here comes Leo man!


  1. Much love and prayers from the Coxes.

  2. He is already unbearably handsome, but I suppose there's nothing wrong with gilding the lily. Prayers for Leo, your whole family, his medical team, and the legions of girls who are going to fall at his feet because of the aforementioned handsomeness.

  3. Oh...such cute pics of the lion... May God Bless ALL the hands of those who will be caring for Leo for the next few days. And Lord...please send down your Guardian Angels to hold up and support Leo & his family through yes another surgery. Know our prayers are coming your way.

  4. Prayers for Leo, your family, the doctors and nurses, and all involved. Lord, have mercy!

  5. God bless baby Leo! We will pray for a smooth, successful surgery and a fast recovery! And we'll pray for his parents and sister as well. (By God's grace we'll be in church on Monday for the Feast of St. Xenia - so we'll all pray for him!)

Lost In Summer

It has been a long time...maybe the longest since I have written to you all last. This blog has meant many different things to me over the past seven years, in fact, it has taken as many different manifestations as its subject matter, Leo the little lion! Not so little anymore, in a couple weeks he will be seven years old.  And so will this blog!  It is amazing to think back to the frightening beginning of it all, and to realize that never in a hundred years could I have pictured myself now, sitting and typing this post at my sunny kitchen table, in my own house, while the early morning sounds trickle in from the open porch door and mingle with the voices of my children in the other room. Not one child, as we all thought seven years ago, but two.  Seven years ago, Leo was not going to live to his first birthday. He was not going to be able to talk sweetly to his big sister, as I hear him doing right now. Though I'm sitting in the other room, I can picture them both clearly; his s…

For The NICU

So you guys know that September is the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) awareness month right?  Yeah, I didn't know either.  Every month there is some disease or disorder that we should worry, promote, and be aware after awhile all that awareness stuff gets tiring... But this is the first time I've heard of an awareness month for a place, rather than a physical condition. What's up with that? How come we need an awareness month for a section of the hospital? We have an awareness month for breast cancer, not the cancer ward why the NICU? I'm pretty sure there is a preemie dedicated month, and one for every other condition that may have put the infant in the NICU in the first place, so why the preferential treatment? After thinking about it for awhile, the only reason I could come up with for the need of this awareness of a place, is that the place itself has inherent issues that people (especially potential NICU parents) should be aware of. No…
