To See or Not to See... that is the question?

After another eye doctor appointment, Charlie finally received a prescription for glasses. It was another hurdle that we've started to hop over. You see, the doctor is hoping that it will narrow her "deviation" aka cross eyes... but, at the same time, she doesn't think it'll completely "cure" them... and that she'll still need some sort of surgery. In the meantime, Charlotte is supposed to wear some "oh la la's" for a few months... in hopes that there will be some improvement.

On Sunday, after our Vietnamese lunch, we headed straight to the eye glasses boutique and handed over Charlie's prescription (which apparently is pretty bad-like coke bottle thick), in hopes that they had a pair of frames that were small enough for our tiny little girl. When we saw this one pair, we just knew they were the ones... and better yet, Charlie pretty much assured they were the ones, as she quickly placed them on her face, and clapped when Da Da held her up in the mirror (pictured below-as well as her new Cyborg Mouth!). She was overjoyed to have glasses... something we thought she'd struggle with (we honestly thought she'd throw them straight on the ground and stomp on them)... but she took it like a champ. In fact, she welcomed it so well, that I almost felt like she "knew" she needed them. I just adore our sweet girl and the struggles that she's been dealt... and I'm so impressed by how she's handling everything... she continues to be filled with joy, and that is more than I could ever have imagined.

  10. Isabel had glasses for a while. They really didn't do her any good, and she ended up needing surgery anyways. At least Charlie likes hers; Isabel really didn't like wearing hers!
