Thank you for visiting. Braydon was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis at his 2 month check-up. I hope that reading his story, it will help out another family going through a similar situation. Also Ethan was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis at 1 week old.

Braydon's Soul Mate

So Braydon has found his true love.  It's just a shame he doesn't know it. 

Terry and I found a couple on CranioKids that lives in Sioux City.  Their daughter Adeline had surgery a week before Braydon with Dr. Miller and Dr. Puccioni.  She had her follow-up with Dr. Miller last Friday, so we thought it would be a good idea to get them together. 

Now we all know Braydon has a thing for older women (just like his daddy) so it's only fitting that she's almost 2 months older than him.  They played pretty well together, well just as well as a 5 1/2 month old and 7 1/2 month old.  Adeline was fascinated with his scar, but that's probably because she can't see hers.  Braydon just stared at her and drooled.  I would like to believe that it's love at first sight, but in all reality it's probably just the teething.  :)

While their hair will grow back over their scars, but I feel like they bonded over them and were talking to each other in their own way.  I believe it's the start of a beautiful friendship between Adeline and Braydon and also between the Laakes and Bueltels.  It's nice to have someone to share this journey.  While we appreciate the support from our family and friends, it's just seems special because they were on the same rocky road.  And now we can experience the recovery road together and compare heads.  Plus it's nice to ask, does Adeline have the same flat spot on her head?  Do you think this is a screw sticking out?

Until the next meeting, you can view pictures from their first date.  My camera was to slow, so here are pictures from the Laake's camera.
