Our little miss Caroline Ella has a new look for our D.C. adventures. About 2 weeks ago she got her first pair of glasses and she LOVES them! Right before her 3rd birthday she would look at me and her left eye
would be crossed. Other times I would see it drift into the corner. Although
I knew this may be in the cards for us with our family history, it broke my heart to see
my little girl look up and say, "Hi, Mommy" with cross-eyes. It's amazing what an incredible uncle and a sweet pair of glasses can do! Adam and two of his sisters, and my sweet nephew Liam all
got the joy of wearing a patch along with their glasses. They didn't love it to say the least.
Caroline just has to wear the glasses and she has been great about keeping them on. Her little eyes don't need to accommodate and cross any more.
When I put it into perspective, I couldn't be more thankful that so far this is all our little one
has dealt with. She is healthy, enthusiastically happy, and loves to give smooches. I know many other little children who have and are dealing with so much greater a challenge, and my tender, aching heart goes out to them.
