Eye see you

Sarah had a pediatric opthamologist appointment in Lansing this morning. Her left eye has been acting weird, crossing by itself, while her right eye stayed put. I suspected strabismus, a common childhood eye problem that is mostly corrected by eye patches or at worst, surgery. The doctor said Sarah's farsightedness (which almost all babies are) is a little bit more than normal for her age, which is most likely causing eye strain, leading to the eye crossing. So, it looks like little Sarah will be getting baby glasses within the next few months. This should be fun, trying to keep glasses on a 9 month old. They have elastic bands that wrap around the baby's head, but they don't keep them on her face. Something tells me Sarah's going to end up chewing on the glasses more often than wearing them.
