Emmy has glasses...

She finally got her glasses yesterday and now our new challenge is finding ways to encourage her to wear them. The doctor says it's going to take some time for her to see the benefit in wearing them since she only has one eye that needs correction, and her good eye is already so used to m compensating for the other one.

To start anytime we're reading or she's reading and also any time she's watching TV. We'll see how this goes. She was so cute though. After she got them we went back to the waiting room where Eli and Marcus were, and Emmy was so excited to show Eli her new glasses. She had them on and walked right up to his face and said, "bubba, bubba." Once Eli saw them, off they went.

As of right now her record for keeping them on in one time frame is about 10 minutes. It's a start.
Isn't she cute in her glasses?

Of course piggy had to have a try at wearing the glasses too.

Yesterday, at the eye doctor Emmy still wouldn't put her chin on the platform and look. I used piggy as an example and when I handed piggy back to Emmy, Emerson was sure that he had an owie from the event. So much for that strategy.

That's what I would think would be the hard part....getting her to keep them on. Glad she's increasing her time :-)
