Dartmouth Visit

Yesterday we went to Dartmouth to see Dr. Stotland regarding the flat spot on the back of Jacob's head. I had considered canceling because his head has gotten a lot better since we scheduled it, but since I'm neurotic, we decided to keep it. So I went thinking he wouldn't get a helmet, but once the doctor started talking I was sure he was going to get one.... but... he didn't! The doctor said he did have a small, flat spot, but thought he was just perfect (and we agree!) and didn't need the helmet. He thought it would continue to improve with time and to just try and keep him off the back of his head. The doctor took different measurements of his skull which also did not meet the criteria for the helmet. So his first helmet will be to ski or ride! :-)
