Well.. New surgery date. Tentative for May 10th! Just over 2 weeks!

A visit to the Nurosurgeon this week.. and she said she thinks the helmet might be working, but not as fast as it should be.. so back on for surgery. Honestly this time I didn't cry and I feel much more at ease about the whole thing.. I am ready for the entire thing to be over. I am sure Finnley doesn't like to be in the car for hours every week to the Dr. or the helmet, well actually he kind of loves his helmet! If he isn't wearing it, he wants to play with it! Here he is in it :) Cute baby!

And the necklace is from Inspired by Finn, baltic amber magnetic closure teething necklace.. he has 6 teeth now and not a peep out of him about any of them and they are BIG!

Another Check Up

And still NO change on the front of his head. Really bummed but I was prepared for it, so back to the Nuerosurgeon we go.. I think the appointment is next week. Hopefully we will get some news at that appointment! 
He is such a happy baby, you would never know he is at the Dr. ALL the time ( it sure feels like all the time).  He is trying SO hard to crawl and he is cheating and using his helmet as leverage to get on his hands and tippy toes!

Went to the Dr. for a checkup

And they measured his head.  No change yet!  I thought it looked different a little, and so did the Dr. but the measurements aren't showing any change, this is not the news we were hoping for. He has 3 1/2 weeks in the helmet left and they will re  measure, if there is still no change it will be back to the Nuerosurgeon and surgery. Still hoping this stinky helmet works in the next couple weeks!  Finnley doesn't seem to be bothered by the helmet at all! The first week it was bothering him, rubbing his poor little skin off a little, and he had a hard time adjusting himself into a comfortable position to sleep.  They lined the inside of the helmet with moleskin and he has had a much better time with it (and now he just rolls onto his belly to sleep).
