I finally got some side-by-side before and after pictures to compare. Seeing them side by side, I'm surprised by how different Samantha looks overall. We noticed the difference in her forehead right away, but I didn't realize her eyes still looked so different.
Anyway, on the bird's eye view pictures, I would like opinions. Ever since her surgery I have thought that she still looks *much* narrower in the forehead than the back of the head. Maybe it's because the back of her head grew so disproportionately to the front during the first 11 months of her life due to the fused suture, but I guess I thought her forehead would be a little wider. She looks great looking at her face, but whenever I look at the top of her head I see a big difference in width from the front to the back. I have compared her to my other kids, and they seem to have a more gradual "slope" from front to back. I don't see a similarity to their head shape. What do y'all think? The only reason it even concerns me at all is because she had so much pressure before surgery due to not having enough room in her forehead, and me, being the worrywart mom that I am, just worry whether she has enough room for her brain to continue to grow. I don't ever want her to go through the ICP like she had before surgery again. So, do you think her forehead looks narrow? Or does it look like a variation of "normal"?
Thanks in advance for your input. Here are the pics:
