My nephew doesn't need the helmet; his head is normal for him. He's part Native American and having to take that into perspective I could see that. It's kind of amazing how similar yet different each ethnic groups body formation is. Being a protective aunt I still think he should get a helmet. The boy bumps his head so much I get freaked out by it at times. My nieces didn't hit their heads nearly as much as he does. Just the other day my oldest sister was watching him and I joked about how his high chair didn't have cushioning on it and sure enough he slams his head on the back of it. He was fine, didn't even flinch.
After all these years of watching my nieces and nephew grow, I have an awe over being able to witness it. I'm very fascinated with how different each one took on each obstacle in their lives so far. I wish I would have started taking notes back when my first niece was born, because I think it would have made an interesting book.
Thank you everyone for keeping my nephew in your prayers. It's been a comfort.
