Wednesday, April 8, 2009 - Update

Ready, set, go!

Well, we picked out Olivia's glasses today. We ended up getting them at Grene Vision, where she goes to the eye doctor. Most places (LensCrafters, EyeMasters, etc.) don't carry any for children as young as Olivia. I didn't want to buy them online without first trying them on. While we were waiting, Ryan and I picked out are favorite ones only to find out that we had only two to choose from. . . .and one of them didn't fit right. Olivia is so young and her face is so narrow that there really isn't a selection at all. So, the glasses aren't my favorite by any means and I hate the big plastic bridge part over the nose, but the point isn't to win a fashion contest. I want to do everything I can to help give her the best vision that I can. Hopefully, these glasses can do that and. . . .Olivia can make anything look cute. (Plus, the bigger she gets. . .the cuter the glasses get.) Her prescription isn't very strong and it doesn't seem that her eyesight is that bad. The glasses are basically supposed to help her eyes relax so that they can focus better. . . .thus reducing the chances for a second surgery. We should be able to pick up the glasses next week. Please pray that she takes to the glasses and that we see an improvement with her eyes.

hey jodi, if you happen to need a second pair (or when she outgrows these), there is a place called zenni optical online that is supposed to have very cheap prices (like maybe $30 including lenses from what I hear), so it might be worth it to check out...just wanted to let you know.
hope things are good...conner has rsv and i'm a nervous wreck.

They'll look cute on her. The fun part is keeping them on. Here is a tip that I was given.... If she takes them off, tell her that "we're going to take a break for a while". Then, when you're getting ready to read a book (or do something), say, "Let's get our glasses so we can see".

Good luck. I can't wait to see the pictures.

I bet she will look so cute in glasses! Actually, anytime I see a smaller kid out somewhere...I always make it a point to tell them how cute they look! Tell Olivia, that her Aunt Amanda in Ohio (lol) (can I be her pretend Aunt...I will never be an aunt) LOL
Anyways! Tell her, that her aunt Amanda bought FAKE glasses just so she could look cool! And that she gets to be cool naturally! :) I am exited to see how much it helps her with things too..she is a doll.. I hope I have a girl!!
