2 Months Sans-craniosynostosis

Craniosynostosis @ two months later. 

Here is Owen right before his surgery:

Here is Owen, exactly two months post-operation.
He is even wearing the same exact shirt. I love that shirt!

Front view before:

Front View @ 2 months w/ an added piece of grass above his lip:

Don't ya see the difference?  He is just so scrumptious, I tell you!

I tried to take a couple of pictures to show his scar. But have you tried to take a picture of a active 16 month old? This kid is busy.  He doesn't have time to be pestered w/ pictures of his scar.  He has way better things to do.  But here is the best shot I was able to get:
One his left side, it seems that the scar is pretty disguised by his hair.
I don't have a picture of his right side....I think that his scar on that side is more noticeable as it is brighter red color and shines through his hair.

His top view is pretty wicked. Look at the zig-zag way the hair is growing back. It is kinda funny.  There are a few spots where hair isn't growing yet so it is still pretty obvious that someone went all Frankenstein on Owen's head.

Owen's hair is finally all one length, as he just had another hair cut this week. That should be his last hair cut for a while.  We are going to let his hair grow out and get all skater-boy on us.  I hear the ladies like shaggy hair.  This will be great because it should hid his scar better than this buzz cut.

So keep coming back as Owen's lil' head goes from all
Arnold Schwarzenegger-like to more Zac Effron-like.
