Actually, if I understand it correctly, newborns are rather durable. They just squeezed through an opening slightly smaller than their head, at an angle, and twisting all the way through. They ought to be pretty resilient. And looking at the way obstetricians handle them, you'll think they're made of rubber!
I remember being told once that a newborn baby's head must be handled with extreme care because the skull is not yet fully formed.

Also I forgot to ask my brother if there was a machine that goes PING!!! in the room when Harper was born.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

While it's true that the bone plates in a newborn's skull are not yet fully fused (creating fontanels or "soft spots", which allow the head to squeeze through the birth canal), they are covered by a membrane that is anything but "soft", and in healthy babies they are extremely unlikely to be injured during normal handling of the baby.

I've become quite the fountain of knowledge in neonatal care recently.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I ment to post this a while back, every year for Christmas my wife gets me a geeky gift. Last year it was a Star Wars pop up book. This year its the Star Trek: TNG 365 book. While I haven't cracked it yet, I'm really looking forward to doing so.

If that gets any thicker you're going to start writing manifestos and building a survivalist shack in the woods of Idaho.

I think he's going to start wearing flannel shirts and advising people to keep their stick on the ice.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

He may have to grow a mohawk on the top of his head to match the beard below it.

Cause he's BLACK OPS.
