A View From Under the Picnic Table

We're almost walking...every day Tessa takes more and more steps. However, she's also been working on her dance moves. At first she would only move her knees, then she added the head bob, and now she's getting into moving her hands and feet. What a doll. :)

Hi, My name is Tim and my wife Moira and I also have a daughter we named Tessa (born 1/08). Tessa was born with a cleft lipa nd palate as well. We picked the name Tessa last summer before we new of the cleft palate condition. The meaning behind it is 4th child, which she is. We are in the process of starting a foundation to help families with babies born with cleft lip and palates get a procedure done called NAM. It elimiates up to 6 surgeries and has been a blessing. Feel free to check out our blog. We posted the videos of your precious daughter there for people to see as well.
