I wanted to let you all know that Nic got his helmet off last week! We were extremely lucky that he responded to the treatment very well and only had to wear the helmet for 1.5 months (as opposed to the at least three months we thought he'd have to wear it). His head shape is back in normal range and we are all glad to have our little fluffy-headed baby back.
Also, on Christmas Eve, Nic gave himself the gift of mobility--he started crawling! It was my dad's goal to get him moving while he was visiting for Christmas, and he succeeded. Check out the video below of Nic playing with our cat's favorite toy, the laser pointer.
