One Year Ago Today....

Well, yesterday now, seeing at it's after midnight! (I didn't get Zeke to bed till 14 past - little stinker!) Apologies for the shocking layout, I copied straight from another post... it formats differently.

Zeke had his operation to reshape his head. Thought you might like to see some before, during and after pics.

Notice the way the back left bulges out heaps:

The front of his head was very narrow:

Very prominent forehead and bulging fontanelle:

At the hospital, first cuddle after the op:

Sitting up and playing the very next morning:

Bandages off on day 3 post-op - you can already see a difference:

One month(ish) on, you can still see the scar, but the shape is so much better:

Six months later, the scar is all but gone:

One year later - a lovely round back of head!:

His head is less triangular too - and hair covers what tiny tiny faint line is left from the scar:

Fontanelle are smooth and no longer peaking:

He still has a big forehead (just like daddy!) but his forehead sticks out far less:

All in all he is my beautiful, smart, sweet, funny, feisty, cheerful little man. I am so incredibly lucky and blessed today. I wanted to share it with you!

365 Photos - Mar 16

Just a day at home I think, I'm mostly waiting for Photobucket to finish rotating the photo from today, and trying to remember what happened! Note to self: edit and rotate photos before uploading them, the site based editor is SOOOO slow!

Zeke is definitely becoming more determined, today he wanted weetbix for lunch, which he then decided to wear, so a bath was in order. Let me tell you, weetbix cement is not fun to clean out of a child's hair, especially one who hates having his hair washed as much as Zeke does!

He added another new word today though - teeth. I gave him his toothbrush (he always brushes teeth in the bath) and he said "teeth" clear as anything. Of course, like most of his other words, he hasn't said it since!

Zeke LOVES going outside, apparently clothes aren't even necessary! Shoes on and he's ready to go!

Another Monday, another playgroup session, lots of lovely weather so we spent a lot of time outside, and did some finger painting with the kids. Zeke is pretty enthusiastic about painting, so we had lots of new pictures to add to his wall! (I'll do an entry for that when I find a day without photos!)

One of the most popular outside toys is the steering wheel on the play equipment, Zeke and Kayleb often have battles about whose turn it is to drive. Only problem is they don't understand the concept of taking turns, and both think it is always their own turn!

My goodness I am behind! Like, A LOT behind. Been so busy with wedding plans and preparing for my hen's night, and goodness knows what else. I can't even remember what we got up to half the days I've missed. Thank goodness for writing some things on the calendar, or status updates on FB, at least I can jog my memory a little like that.

Not so much for this entry though. I think we just chilled at home.

Zeke loves playing dress ups with anything he can find, particularly things that can become hats. Here's my little goof playing around with the bucket for his blocks!
