We're getting glasses...

These seemed to be the favorite pair - is that a "cheesy grin" or what????I realize I did not let you all know how the eye appointment on Saturday went. LONG story made short.....we are getting glasses. She has astigmatism in both eyes. We did however, decided that we are getting them from a doc here in Angola instead of driving back and forth from Fort Wayne so often. Here are some photos of us trying some on.....
These were a hit too, although with this pair we can't order the flexible ends that will go behind her ears to keep them on so they weren't the final choice.

Oh my gosh, she looks SOO cute in those. My Ava will get glasses any day too! She's been through quite a bit with her eyes. Two surgeries so far and one more to take a cataract out and that could be this year. She'll be in glasses immediately after the surgery. I've been such a worried wart over it (if she'll keep em' on, etc.). Does Brooklyn like them?

I wish I could remember how I found you guys. When I visit my usual blog friends, I often go to their "friends" section and click on some children's names and read their stories. I stumbeled upon you and started to read and was hooked. I'm so intrigued by RETT and I want to help "fight the good fight" any way I can. I can always encourage you and I think you are a fabulous mom to Brooklyn. You can tell through her smile she knows how much she is loved and love you back. That's what mom's do... love our children through the good and the bad. We have to be their biggest advocate.

Well sorry this is long. I often visit Kaitlyn (listed on my blog) and Holland and Eden (also on my blog and they are former preemies). I may have found you from one of thier friends.

I'm so glad you have a heart for preemies! Ava and Andersen were 26 weekers.

We have two pugs and we traveled from Columbus to New Haven, IN to get them. I think that is near Fort Wayne.

Take care and Ava and Andersen say Hi to Miss Brooklyn. By the way, we call Ava, "Ava Bean" or "Bean Sprout". :-)

She looks sooooooo cute! Of course, she looks a little more grown up now too. (I know, not what a mom wants to hear -- sometimes it's too bad they can't stay little forever; but growing is fun too!)

Hey Brooklyn,

Your glasses are awesome. You look like a true movie star. Just think of how much better you are going to be able to see your favorite people "The Wiggles". I can't believe how much you are growing up. Each week I see a huge change in you. What a little doll you are. Kelly and Charlie, you are doing a lot of the "right things". Keep up the GREAT work!
