My baby's getting glasses!
I'm having to adjust to the whole idea.
Turns out, she's EXTREMELY far sighted. I don't understand how, since it seems like she tries to get as close as possible to things she's trying to see, but, well, I'll trust the eye doctor's expertise over my own.
We picked her out some purple frames with butterflies on the side. They're very, very cute.
No on-site lab for her optometrist, so we'll have to wait a few days. She isn't happy about waiting, and she really isn't happy with the whole dialating-her-eyes thing. I told her that was the worst part for most grownups, too.
Because her case is so severe, the doctor is only giving her half the prescription now. She's going to check her again after a month to see how her eyes have adjusted.
I guess we'll have to take new fall pictures now, once the new frames come in. I told Anna Marie that since it was so early in the week, maybe she'd have her new specs by the weekend.
She really believes that no one will recognize her with the glasses on. I guess she'll be disappointed when her red hair and personality give it away.
And for those of you wondering what my daughter looks like as a leopard:
She wept bitterly when I had to wash off her spots last night before bed, even though I told her that leaving them on would dirty up her pillowcase.
"I did not want you to do that!" she cried.
Poor little leopard.
