Two More

For the past few months, Audrey has been showing signs of having a lazy eye. Of course, there's a history of this in our families. Jeff had a lazy eye and was forced to be "Captain Jeff" for a couple of years growing up. Complete with a black eye patch. The Erlinger side has had their fair share of pirates in their own right. The three Erlinger brothers, apparently, were forced into the pirate lifestyle at one point or another in their lives.

Yesterday's visit to the ophthalmologist yielded a new chapter in Audrey's life. No, she doesn't need to go the "pirate" route. Rather, her eye is drifting inward as a result of her farsightedness. As a result, she has been fitted for eye glasses and will spend the next few years as part of the Bookworm Club. God bless her.

Like her cousins, she'll look like a little doll in glasses. Glad you caught it before it got worse.

I always think little kids with glasses are adorable.

I still remember when I got glasses at the age of 16. I really didn't want to wear them but once I put them on I was so happy to be able to see so well. I hadn't realized had bad my eyesight was until I put on my new glasses. Hopefully she'll only have to wear them for a couple of years and she'll have perfect eyesight the rest of her life.
