A Story About A Head

Once upon a time Emily was born with a perfectly round head.

(the first time I got to hold her...when she was three days old)

As far as her head goes, it was all downhill from birth.

She spent so much time on her back, that happens when you have three open heart surgeries and major gut issues, that her head didn't stand a chance.

Poor little head.

One day Emily's mommy and daddy said, "We can't leave our poor girl like this forever."

Thankfully the insurance company agreed and one extremely expensive hat was ordered.
Emily had her head measured by a laser, and thought about starting a new fashion trend.

...and although a cuter girl in a helmet simply doesn't exist...

...Miss Emily is grateful the helmet stage is now behind her...
...except for when she falls over and then she looks at her mommy with a face that says 'What the heck just happened to me?'

The end.

Yay hooray! She's always been a beauty, but look at her now! And sitting up, too? That little girl is such a trouper. (I think she gets it from her mama.)

YAY!!!! :)

(Come to think of it, falling and bonking your head without a helmet, after having a pretty pink helmet for so long, must be pretty dang confusing! It's okay. She'll get another one when she's starts riding a bike)

I LOVE that last photo of Emily. She is such a sweet girl and she looks adorable in that pink onesie.

Lmbo the last line cracked me up. I am sure that is shocking to fall without the helmet now. She is so beautiful Noelle..

Yay Emily! Of course you were adorable in the helmet, but the bow looks cuter and much more comfortable. Big squeeze to you. :o)
