Default pics to share

hello...here are two pictures of my lil' one. the 6 week one is right before propanolol treatment and before even knowing anything about hemangiomas (we thought and we told by others that they were salmon patches or something of that sort and that they would go away and not worry...little did we know).

the other pic, is the most recent one. what a difference huh? the only thing left are those "spidery" H's that she has on her left cheek, on the left side of her temple, and left upper corner of her forehead. i was told by the specialist, dr. mathes, that most likely those "spidery" ones are not going to go away with propanolol and will go away with time. what do you think?
i'm debating wether to request laser treatment soon, instead of palying the "wait and see" game. my main concern is that kids will make fun of her when she starts pre-school and that it will affect her emotionally.

any thoughts?

p.s.
the 7 month old pic is not the best so you are not able to see the spidery H's that good, but they are there and look a bit more prominent than the pic shows.
