We knew Oakes was in good hands this morning and took our time getting here. When we got here he was dressed, and sitting comfortably in his Boppy!

I had tears in my eyes when I saw him. His transplant was a month ago tomorrow and he has not been dressed since then. Clothes haven't been on my radar at all, but it was so sweet to see him looking like a 'normal' little baby with clothes on!

With Oakes' chubby cheeks, athletic socks, onesie and his reclined lazy-boy position, I think I might call him Bubba today! Kick your feet up kiddo, have a good nap, soak up the love and prayers swirling around your room, you are doing so very well and we are all so proud of you!

May you all have an equally relaxing day!
Hugs and tugs, Beck


  1. I know what you mean. Noah only wore clothes one weekend, and it was so awesome to see him as a baby and not a patient. Oakes looks so handsome and cute sporting his cute outfit :-)

  2. go bubba go!

    did you know that is what i was calling him when i was there earlier this month? it kinda fits with those chubby cheeks!

  3. So cute! I am so happy to hear he is doing well! He certainly looks cozy :)

  4. Happy Anniversary tomorrow! That is HUGE. Nice work, Mighty Bubba Oakes, family, and medical team.
