Calvin in his helmet

Calvin got his orthotic helmet today.  The next 5-10 days will be spent acclimating him to his helmet.  He will need to wear his helmet 23 hrs a day for 3-6 months.  He doesn't like our putting it on him, but once it's on he does really well.  Hopefully we'll get better at taking it on and off with practice.

Poor Calvin.  He's making the best of it, but the helmet does make his head even heavier!

He's been teething and finally decided he'd take a pacifier today.
Mealse making him laugh with "ride the bicycle".


  1. awww, he's so cute, even with that helmet on! What a little trooper!

  2. Poor guy! I didn't realize he was having trouble!

  3. What a good sport he is! Praying for you guys!

  4. oh my goodness...i am so wanting to squeeze him!!! he is so cute in that thing!!!!! I had a friend who had twins and her little guy wore a helmet. but he was not nearly as cute in it!!! his cheeks are AMAZING!!!!

I'm an on-the-run mom to 6 kids who studied and taught exercise science in a previous life. I love all things running, nutrition, and health-related. I usually run at zero dark thirty in the morning and am often quite hungry before, during, and after my run, but I live a rich, full, blessed life with my children, family, and friends. My faith in God is my anchor, and looking to Him and His promises allows me to live fully even when life circumstances are difficult. While running gives me an appetite, my desire is to hunger and thirst for righteousness more than for physical food.
