Elaina got her new glasses today. She was so excited to get them. Her Mommy, Gamma, Aunt Jean, Aunt Joanie, Aunt Ali, Uncle Richard and a couple of friends at school all have glasses too.
We went to the eye doctor on Monday and I had forgotten that she would eventually need glasses due to the Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) she had when she was born. Elaina had surgery when she was 3 months old in Guatemala. Elaina was a preemie and only weighed @ 2-2 1/2 pounds at birth and she had stage 3 out of 5 stages of the ROP. So glasses were inevitable. I had to laugh at my eye doctor (who I LOVE) she said:"Yep, she is YOUR daughter because we have the same stigmatism in our left eyes. (I also had eye surgery when I was a baby).
These are transition lenses (didn't know that before I got them today)but when she goes outside and the lenses darken she looks like John Lennon. Too cute!!
We had a very busy day today. We started our day with going to a WW meeting with Mommy, then we went to swim lessons and had to leave early so we wouldn't be late for the egg hunt. We go to the egg hunt just as they started and Elaina had fun gathering her eggs. (Sorry no pics-Mommy's camera card was full. Had to delete some pics,but luckily Aunt ALi saved the day and she took egg hunt pics for us.) Elaina actually sat on the Easter Bumy's lap this year. She gave him a high five but we just couldn't quite get the smile out of her. Of course once she was down off his lap she was all smiles. We had lunch and then ran some errands and then went to go watch ALi's boys play soccer. They did great!! We had a really good say!!!
