Goodbye, Microcephaly?

Yes, that is Bertrand taking his bottle, one-handed like a boss.

I needed some good news this weekend, and it came from the best possible source: Bertrand. His head appears to have passed the 15th percentile!

A little over 2 years ago, Bertrand was diagnosed with microcephaly, which literally means small head. His head was measuring in the 2nd percentile.
Since head growth slows down as kids get older, most of Bertrand's doctors had stopped measuring his head circumference. At his past several neurology appointments, I've had to request that they take the measurement.

As a result, since this past summer, I've been tracking his head circumference. While his doctors haven't commented on the trend, I think it's a significant one. I will take any excuse to celebrate my boy! :)


  1. Way to go, Bertrand! Way to make Mommy, and all of us proud! :D

  2. Great news!! Oh, and I love the new look of your blog! So fresh!
