Well, today was the day. Ramona will no longer need to wear her helmet. This is the first time in over a year that she hasn’t had something strapped to her head or face all day. Here are the before and afters…



She’s got some definition now at the base of her skull, the bulging in her forehead has been minimized (you can really see it in the last shot), and her overall symmetry has really been improved. The difference is pretty subtle, but I’m pleased with the results. Is that a creepy thing to say?

I can’t get over what a big girl she is now! I promise to post some girly shots of her cute self with bows in her hair, etc. but I’m still trying to figure out what’s happening with her hair. The helmet wore off a bunch of hair in the front so she’s got a receding hairline thing up there and it’s gotten very long in the back. Maybe she is just destined for mullethood.

Thanks for your prayers, thanks for your comments.

Love, Jane.
