No more helmet!

5 Oct

It’s official…Henry is done with the helmet! Yaaaaaaaay!

The final appointment was on Monday and we don’t miss that thing one bit.

To be fair, while it was a bit of a nuisance, the helmet totally worked. Henry’s head no longer looks weird. The before and after pictures are fascinating- his head is rounder, taller, and symmetrical. Check out the final report:

Most amazing to me… look at how much he’s grown in the last five months! My baby boy just keeps getting bigger!



Slowing down for swing time…

11 Sep

I am so thankful for Henry.

When I am busy at work, he teaches me to slow down.

When I am sad, he is generous with his smiles.

When I am bored, he is eager to swing at the park…

Amidst Deron’s injury, traveling, and the demands at work, it’s been a tough few weeks. There haven’t been many opportunities to relax. And, even though I had to work on Saturday (ugh), we managed to find some time today to be quiet. We stayed in our jammies all morning. We went to the park. We enjoyed the last of the warmth and sunshine. It was lovely.


As a side note, Henry is making great progress with his cranial banding. Only three-ish more weeks to go and then we can get rid of the helmet. It can’t come soon enough for me- the helmet is starting to get in the way of cuddling and playing. You may have noticed it’s absence from the recent photos- I’m not the best a keeping the helmet on him.
