Well, I've put off getting this post finished for so long it's almost time for another check-up!
Ah well, better late then never.
Unless it's a traffic ticket... of course.
Do you know I've never been pulled over before?
But I digress.
Almost three weeks ago we drove the 3+ hours to Jackson's helmet check-up appointment.
Into the little scanner he went, and here are his before and after shots.

The red line is his before shape, the blue is the after.
Pretty incredible right?
He really is doing remarkably well, and I feel such deep gratitude to my Heavenly Father for blessing us so much.
We were told that for only a month in the helmet, you really couldn't as for a better result.
After a 45 minute visit, we loaded back up into the car and drove straight back home.
And next week, we get to do it all over again.
It's funny to me how many people assume the helmet is for a flat spot. The comments about it have never really come off as judgmental, just purely based on assumption.
Which is fine. I mean, I had never heard of crainiosynostosis either before Alayna.
On a different note, the other day Hubby was holding Jackson while he was on helmet break and they looked so similar I just had to snap a photo!
But as soon as I busted out the camera, all the other kids wanted to get in the picture too.
Silly kiddos. Love them.
I posted this picture on my facebook page saying, "This little guy holds my heart in the palm of his adorably chubby little hand."
My dad then wrote back, "He may have your heart in his hands, but what does he have in his cheeks? Chocolate?"
LOL! Maybe so.
There is still plenty of time for issues to develop and problems to arise, but for now, he is a rock star.
