Little Man Four-Eyes

Welp, it’s official. Toby is getting glasses.

It started with his goopy eye and then his nasolacrymal duct surgery to clear it out.

Surgery went well, then we went back for a series of exams to determine his ability to see. Turns out, he is hyperopic (farsighted) and amblyopic (lazy eye), and having lots of trouble seeing.

Isn’t he cute?? He loved the yellow glasses with the interchangeable lenses. We are participating in a research study on treatments for kids with amblyopia, so we got free glasses (woo hoo!) and Toby really enjoyed trying on the different glasses.

So we go pick them up sometime next week and he will be in them full-time. Pics will be posted when we get them!

March Photo A Day: A Smile

One of the first shots I’ve gotten of a real smile from Mona!

One Month Old!

We had quite the dilemma deciding when exactly Mona was going to “turn over” her months, being born on the 31st of January. We decided that we would observe the last day of every month as her “monthly birthdays.”

Hard to believe she’s already been with us for a whole month!

Three Weeks!

Three weeks old!

Two Weeks

Mona turned two weeks old on Tuesday night. To celebrate, Paula (our midwife) showed up to weigh her and do her newborn screening and hearing test mandated by the State of PA. She was less than thrilled by the heel stick, but we got what we needed and she passed the hearing test with flying colors.

Paula brought her daughter (and my special buddy) Amanda to see Mona too. Amanda loves little girl babies, so was thrilled to hold her.

Mona weighed in at 7lb, 10oz, meaning in two weeks she was back to her birth weight. I’m excited to get back to prenatals with Paula. We’ll probably start back with the birth work in March.

Happy two weeks, Mona!


Pictures from the visit

Here are some pictures from Gram & Gramps’ visit to Conestoga!

I apologize for not updating recently. I’ll get back into things as things calm down over here and we get back into a routine.
