They're here....



Two months and four optometry office visits later, Hope FINALLY has her first pair of glasses. As you can sort of tell from the pictures, they're pink wire frames with cable arms that wrap around her ears and a rather large plastic thing called a universal bridge. They're a little big but I think we did the best we could given Hope's small head and features. I went to four different places -- two of which had to order special frames for us to even try on -- before we found these on Tuesday and I decided to go with it. They arrived yesterday.

So far, Hopesy is actually doing pretty well with them! She kept her head down for the 15 minutes she had them on yesterday, as if they were heavy. Today, she's doing much better. Apparently this seeing stuff isn't so bad.

But some sights, as you can tell from the picture below, are good no matter whether you can see them clearly or not -- like Hope's thumbs. She's been fascinated with her hands, and particularly her thumbs, for about a month now.
