We had to take Wesley this past week to Wake Forrest to get his head shape looked at. Our pediatrician recommended that we go and get another opinion on his head shape. Preemies often have a different shaped head because everything has to finish developing outside of the womb. Preemies heads tend to grow more up than out. Since Wesley was born so early there are a couple of spots that they want to work on get symmetrical and they feel that
they can do that with a helmet. I was hoping that he would not have to have one but he did. Even though there is nothing wrong and it is just cosmetic, for me it feels like we have taken a step back when I see him in it. For three months of his life I never saw my little boy without something cumbersome and restraining on him so it was hard for me to have to do this. He has to wear it for 4 months 22 hrs. a day. I am getting use to it and he does not seem to mind it. Yes, it is Carolina blue and we are not Carolina fans so that has been fun. We are thinking of how we can decorate it for him so if you have any ideas let me know. He now knows how his dad feels. Everyone always asks Greg "Did you play basketball?" and he sadly says no, now everyone asks Wesley "Do you play football?" and he sadly says my parents won't let me yet.
