Ella ... and the helmet

So today we went to pick up Ella's new helmet.

I thought that I was going to be a total basket case, but I actually did very well. She really does look cute with it on. It was very surprising to me how well she acted when the doctor put it on her for the first time. She tolerated it very well. That little girl of mine...she's a trooper.

The rest of the day today and all day tomorrow she will wear it for 1 hour and then it will be off for 1 hour. She doesn't have to wear it for nap time and bedtime until Friday...PRAY!!!! She hasn't been tolerating it so well since we have been home. She does fine when she is sitting up, being held or playing in her jumper, but the minute I put her in the bouncy seat or swing she seems to get a little frustrated.

Even though it is time consuming putting the helmet on and taking the helmet off...I know I have the better end of the deal. It must be uncomfortable laying with this hard helmet on all the time. I just keep telling myself it is only for a short period of time....we can manage...I am sure it will get easier when she gets used to it.

Here is a picture of my pretty little princess in her butterfly helmet...
Isn't she adorable???
