a boy + his glasses

First day in his glasses - March 2007

Taylor got his glasses when he was just about 8 months old, and let me tell you, it was a really hard adjustment at first, for us. Taylor's glasses made him look so different, and so much older, and he already was big for his age. That was hard. Also, it was really hard getting him to wear them for more than 30 seconds at a time. He would love to rip them off his face and then bite and gum them to a slobbery mess. It didn't take him too long to realize that they helped him see, and now they're just a part of who he is. We adore seeing other kiddos with glasses, and even one of his favorite cartoon and book characters, Arthur, has glasses, too. I thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of the first couple of months Taylor had his specs. In one year we have gone through 4 different frames, 2 different prescriptions, and about 5 different pairs of lenses. I can't imagine him any other way now. We go in on April 30th for another eye check to see if his eye is still up to all the funny business, and I am still noticing it's been turning in, but not as frequently nor as extreme.

Enjoy the pictures. He is such a goober, I imagine he tastes just like chocolate, perhaps with a nutty center. Right?!
