A month or two ago, I noticed Baby Girl was squinting one eye when looking at close up objects, books, etc. I started watching her like a hawk, looking for the same eye turn that Belle has.
When Belle was diagnosed with accommodative esotropia, we were told to watch our younger kids, as it tends to run in families. I watched Baby Girl so closely that I wasn't entirely sure if I actually was, indeed, seeing her eye turn in, or if I was just being that crazy, overprotective, "I'm seeing something that's not actually there" kind of mom, but nonetheless, I made an eye doctor appointment for her, convinced, if anything, that her squinting needed to be evaluated.
Well, mere minutes into that eye exam, and it was confirmed that Baby Girl also had accommodative esotropia. You'd think that I'd be all knowing and full of the right questions to ask, being we've been down this road before, but yeah. No.
Not until I got home did all the questions come.
Anyway, after selecting her frames and waiting impatiently (wait, that was me), Baby Girl was outfitted with her brand spankin' new specs today! In a bittersweet moment for me, I had a little tug on heart, as I realized we have to get used to her "new look". I remember the same apprehension with Belle, so I know that it won't be long before her adorable glasses will be "a part" of my spunky Baby Girl.
I'm also thankful that she will be entering school WITH her glasses, as opposed to getting them during the year and having them be "different"...now, her classmates will only know her with glasses! Bonus!
So, for now, we just do the struggle with getting the right adjustment on her glasses...was in two times in as many hours today and she still is complaining that they hurt. :( Back we go tomorrow!
Anyway, here is my sweet girl in her glasses!
