I look just like Buddy Holly

So Noah has had a lazy eye for the past year or so. He'll look at you and one eye is IN while the other one is looking at you. So I took him to the optometrist, who said his vision is fine, but to take him to ophthalmologist just to be sure. The optha. put crazy drops in his eyes that made his muscles relax, and he's 2.25 farsighted. So yay for no surgery! But farsightedness means...glasses.

The Doc said the best place to get kiddies glasses was an hour away, but they had only THREE pairs to pick from (huh?) of plastic ones (apparently the metal ones aren't as comfy for this age).
So we went to our local glasses shop and they had like 20 to pick from.

We went with the Emergent Buddy Holly look....... :)

Here he is trying them on at the shop.

He excitedly waited "2 sleeps" to bring them home....and got them today!
I have to say he just LOVES them (I really mean it) and takes good care of them. Its amazing how the Lord prepared him because he wears his sunglasses ALL THE TIME, he'd wear them indoors if I let him, and now he's got his own special ones. God is good. He really loves them and is confident in them which I'm so grateful for, and I think he looks cute in them :)

They really do suit him - the sunglasses 'thing' was just the perfect preparation for them
