This week Indigo was diagnosed with craniosynostosis. It is the early closure of one or more of the sutures in the skull. She has the most common type: sagittal craniosynostosis. The sagittal suture (the one on top of the head) is fused and must be opened with surgery.

We are slowly taking in what this means for our family. Her surgery will likely happen within the month & she will have to wear a helmet for the next year.
Our move to Cairo will happen next Friday. We're trying to focus on the present & just take things one day at a time. Please keep us in your thoughts.

One month

It seems impossible that one full month has passed since the birth. I can't get my head around it. Indigo is more alert & really a perfectly lovely baby. And making this very busy time so much easier in that she is an excellent sleeper.

This is our 501st post

since beginning this blog back in 2007 - right before Levi was born. I've enjoyed reading thru those old post lately - especially to compare the pictures of Levi as a newborn to little Indigo. And to take a look at our experiences as new parents.
We've got 3 weeks before our move to Cairo. I've got the packing well underway & have to say it's making the housekeeping a bit easier - as in: the more I pack into boxes, the less there is for our family to maintain. As always, I'm parting with numerous items during this packing process - I love to purge. Less is always more.
Having a potluck solstice party on Saturday... a few days before the actual solstice on Tuesday.

We'll be moving to Cairo, Ga at the end of this month. Joe's taking a new biologist position with DNR. Still finalizing everything & taking it all in. We'll begin packing soon.
