Before & After Pictures

I got the pictures from CranialTech of Isabela's before & after. WOW WOW WOW!
It is just incredible and amazing! Take a look...
You can see how wide the top of her head was before

Look how flat and now how perfect! :-D

The changes are so amazing. So obvious when you see it like this how much she needed this and benefited from her Doc Band.

Graduation Day!

Woo-Hoo she did it!!! Our princess graduated (the first of many graduations to come!) from her band today! It was a little bittersweet. We will miss our visits to the clinic, Teresa, and her sweet face framed by her helmet. It was a great experience that we'd do over again in a second. I encourage any parent that is thinking about getting their child a band to do so and not hesitate. It's quick, painless and a wonderful gift you can give your child for the rest of their life.
cupcakes for Teresa and the staff

 Daddy and his baby before we went in. Love her tutu!
Me and my baby girl
One last family photo before she's done!
This is the DSI machine they use to take pictures of their heads.
She did it!!
) So happy!
She wouldn't smile, lol. She looks so wonderful!
A before & after photo. The left side is before. Look at the difference!!!
Another before & after. The change is incredible!!!
Teresa!! Isabela had enough of the photos, haha! We loved her!
Her diploma!
Can you see the red mark on her forehead? She bumped her head about an hour after she graduated! This is new for us, she's been "baby proofed!" :)
Once I get the email from CranialTech with all of her pictures from today I'll post some more. We are elated with the results and so excited for the new chapter to begin. <3

It's here!!

Tomorrow is the big day!
Isabela graduates from her Doc Band!
It's been such an amazing experience, but we are ready to see her beautiful head uncovered! I was very tempted to keep the band off today, lol, but I fought the urge and she has worn it all day!
Today is week 13. Last pictures before we're exciting! 

I made some AMAZINGLY delicious cupcakes for Teresa and the staff at CranialTech, I can't thank them enough for what they have done! :)

Happy Halloween!


Week 12...ONLY 7 MORE DAYS!!!

We are in the home stretch, only 7 days to go! :-D
I mean come on....look how round and perfect her little head is!! It's so exciting to see the amazing difference, and in only 12 weeks!
Our graduation is on 11/7 :) I'm going to be sad to say goodbye to Teresa, she's been so great! But I am excited to start this next chapter in her life with a beautiful noggin! Now we're going to have to start dealing with bumps and bruises when she fall :-/ YIKES!

This picture is from April, she was three months old. Look how flat! How did we not notice and realize it was an issue?! We thought she was a little flat, but thought it was just her shape. I sure am glad our pediatrician told us at her 4 month appointment that we should have her looked at. This has been such a great experience and made such a big difference!
Alright...I'll post some graduation and before/after pics next week. Wow...can't believe we're almost done ;)

Week 11...13 more days!!!!!

Bela's exit/graduation appointment is scheduled 11/6 at 9:30! WOO-HOO! While time has flown by and the results are beyond what we could have imagined and its been painless and easy, we're ready for her to be done! It's getting harder each day to put her helmet back on after her bath because she looks so cute without it. I think it's just because I know we're so close to the end I'm excited and anxious for the next chapter!
Teresa was again so thrilled with the progress from two weeks ago. Isabela's head is very cooperative (lol) and does what she asks! The back has grown out more and her circumference of her head grew a few more cm which is what they want to see!
I cannot wait to have her pictures taken again and compared at the clinic at her exit appointment. It's going to be so amazing to look it over with Teresa and hear what she has to say :-D
Isabela has a very special outfit picked out for graduation...daddy thinks I'm silly, but it's a big day!!!!

Week 10 already? Where did week 9 go?!?!?

This past week flew by in the blink of an eye. I cannot believe it's week 10 already!
 She is going so wiggly it's hard to take the pictures now. Sorry they're blurry again!
You can see, especially on the left side, that she still needs to fill in on the bottom. But WOW, since our last appointment, 10/12, we have seen changes.
Here is her left profile again from week 9... 
I know her hair isn't as wet in this weeks picture, but I think you can still see a slight difference. I can!! :-D That makes me one happy mama!
I'm going to call Cranial Tech and set our exit appointment. So exciting!!!!!!!!
