Sophia's New Glasses

Last month Sophia Lynette had an appointment at the ophthalmologist.  He explained to me that she was cross eyed, farsighted, and had the potential to lose her vision because of her brain bleeds.  He wanted to put her in glasses and follow up with her in November.  His hope is that her eye muscles will strengthen and start to work in unison.  To accomplish this, she has to wear her glasses whenever she is awake.  On 9/11 Sophia had new eye wear!  For the first few weeks she did great.  Within the last three weeks Sophia has wanted nothing to do with her glasses.  Jeremiah wanted to know if they were "real" because "they look like they came out of a cracker jacks box."  Several people has asked if they were prescription glasses and I inhale, smile, and say yes.  Everyone responds by saying how cute she looks...and she is very cute with them on.  Here's how the glasses have been going.

This was day number four.  So comfortable in the glasses that she falls asleep with them.


Suddenly, things took a turn for the worse.  Last week she and I had it out over the glasses.  I put them on and she slid them up...looking right at me.

 Wait for it...

Wait for it...

 Then she erupts and refuses to wear them!

Still refusing.

 Calmed down to take a breath.

Back to refusing and is MAD!

Then I decided to leave her alone before her heart rate and blood pressure started reaching dangerous levels.

She was perfectly content with those glasses off her face and on her head.

 Not sure what is going on here but I'm pretty sure she's winning.

I decided to concede and Sophia wins again.  Dang baby!

Those pictures are too funny! Hopefully she'll start to like them again. If only she could understand that her vision DEPENDS on it!

She does look adorable, but I have no idea how you are going to get her to wear them. I could never get the girls to wear sunglasses at that age, and that was just for fun.
