I pulled into the eye surgeon's office and went inside. They had Meagan's glasses all ready for us. They were SO cute! Little pink wire frames ........
They were absolutely adorable and so girly! They were a little big, so the Optician had to take them back and adjust and shorten the ear pieces. The ones that would fit her well had a strap and pressed too much on her shunt, so we had to make these work. He came back in a few minutes and they slipped right around Meagan's ears and fit great! She looked so cute! There were several people in line behind us and they were all smiling at Meagan in her new specs.
She seemed to look around already when they first put the glasses on. I took off her glasses when we got home for a second to see what she was seeing... it was definitely a lot of correction! The Eye Surgeon had told me her prescription was very strong because he's trying to salvage her muscle strength the best he can.
We finally got home... I was still feeling badly...but you know how it is if you are a mom. There is no time to rest, to sit down, to "recover" when you get sick. There are still kids to tend to, house to clean, laundry to do, and many many other things. I put Meagan in her bouncy seat and was working with her on grabbing toys. I put a soft block in her hands and let go... she would not be able to hold on and it would drop. So I started to push her hands together around the block so she got the sensation of "holding" something. Each time I did it, I said "Squish!" and would laugh. She really engaged me with her eyes and smiled. After a few times of this.... I heard a little "Hah".... I thought... wait a minute.. is that what I think it is?
So I continued our "squish" game as I pressed her hands into the soft block toy...each time I made sure to smile big and say "Squish!" and sure enough... every time.... she chuckled!!
