Wide eyes!!!

Poor Josiah, his eyes had to be dilated for two full days in order for the eye dr. to get a good diagnosis. But, prognosis is...no glasses or surgery...for now. We will be making trips to the eye dr. every 6-8 weeks to make sure his eyes don't deteriorate quickly. He will need glasses or surgery in the future, he's just too little to keep glasses on right now, plus he gets sensory overload when anything like hats, sunglasses, towels, etc. are placed on his face or head. He literally starts thrashing and eyes tear up! Poor baby. To combat this, I do a lot of deep tissue massage on his head and face.
We also may be looking at braces for his feet. I will be making another Gillette appointment for the summer. He is getting a little thumb brace to help correct that tightness.

Oh, we have a new cria! (That is a baby alpaca). She was born last week, and is adorable!

Just a little update from our busy household!

Actually I have seen babies with glasses. They look like a sport glasses that basketball players wear with strap that goes around the head.
