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!

I loved looking at Zeke's pictures here Miranda, I can't believe it has been a year. And that hair! Gorgeous!
