Avery Alexandra was born on October 14, 2009. She has had many health issues to battle in her short life and this blog is for our family and friends to stay updated on her progress. We also want to document this process for other families to view who may be going through the same experience. We thank you all for your continued love & support..♥♥

We got Avery's helmet on Friday. It came in white so we decorated it with pink paint and white daisies. She is doing pretty good with it so far. She doesn't like when we put it on her head, but usually soon forgets it's there. Sometimes she tugs on it. Sleeping has been rough for her at times, but we are hoping she will get used to it and go back to sleeping through the night soon. We have to wipe the sweat off her head throughout the day. In the evening we take it off to wash her hair and the helmet for about an hour....I am sure she looks forward to that hour everyday ;-)

She will wear this helmet for 3-4 months. We will go to get it adjusted every other week. Once she outgrows this helmet, we may do another round of helmet therapy, if needed.


  1. How is it possible that she looks so dang cute in that!!!

  2. Seriuosly? The cutest thing ever. I just love her. I am so glad she is doing well Sheila. She is such a cute baby. I will continue to pray for miracles for this beautiful miracle baby. Love and miss all of you! <3, Sheerah
