Week 4 & 5

We're getting a new helmet!  Finally.  Our orthotist came to terms with the fact there is no fixing this original helmet and we are going to get casted again (poor Quinn) tomorrow.  Here's hoping this one fits nicely.  Sheesh, she'll have been in this poorly fitting one for half the entire time!  What a stinkin' waste.  ALTHOUGH...we had our follow up appointment with the neurosurgeon last week and he saw nice improvement.  Her cephalic index went from 94% to 90% in the four weeks she was wearing it.  So I guess it's not all that bad.  I think the visit is what prompted the decision for a new helmet.  The orthotist was at the follow up appointment and the neuro guy basically bashed the helmet fit. 

I wanted to share a couple pics of the decorated band before it hit helmet graveyard.  I think it turned out so cute.  We're debating whether or not we'll decorate this new one.

In other news, our little birdie has taken to dancing.  She dances to any beat she can find.  It's so cute!  Today she was dancing to firetruck sirens.  Love her.
