Ben's personality is back! He follows me all over the house calling, "momomomom..." and he has been very clingy, but just as observant and curious as ever. He is back to trying to stand on his own, but timing couldn't be worse. Our helmet fitting is this coming Monday, and we will have the helmet about a week after that. Our first post op appointment and his nine month check up are also on Monday. He will hate getting the helmet and it will be hard for me to cover up his adorable hair, but I also look forward to the security of keeping him from bumping his head.
