I started noticing it back around Christmas time. I tried to ignore it, but eventually it was very obvious it wasn’t going to go away.
I took Little One to her pediatrician, who recommended that we take her to a pediatric ophthalmologist.
Dr. Spencer did all kinds of things to examine my sweetie’s eyes, and in the end, informed me that my ten-month-old baby girl needs glasses.
I had really hoped she was just going to need a patch for a few hours a day. I have to admit that putting my busy, curious, mischievous, trouble-finding little lady in glasses was not exactly what I was hoping for.
In the grand scheme of things, a pair of glasses isn’t that big of a deal. But I admit I am having a hard time covering up her beautiful blue eyes with glare-catching lenses.
Maybe I just want perfection for my girl.
I want people to see how wonderful she is, not just look at her and see a pair of pink frames.
But it is what it is. It could always be so much worse. I know that.
Today Little One’s glasses arrived.
They did not automatically make her smarter.
But it’s possible that they are adding to the cute around here.
Look at her. Isn’t she hilarious? 🙂
And I couldn’t leave this picture out. She was really trying to get the camera. And she just looks so dorky.
No doubt she fits in this family just fine. 🙂
And the glasses?
Well, I think we’ll get used to them.
