Finally learned to use his top lip

video

I love this! I have worked and waited and prayed for the day he could pucker that top lip and he has finally learned how. I pinch the top lip all the time holding it for 3-5 seconds and we work with it during therapy twice a week also. One more step to looking and talking normal. Thank the Lord!

For those who are not familiar with a cleft baby this is a major step in the right direction. This for me is like watching a not cleft affected child learn to ride a bike for the first time. Not all cleft children can move their top lip while talking, unfortunately.
