I know you are looking at this picture and wondering what it is! It is my Pinterest! What is Pinterest you ask, well it is like a giant cork board on the internet. You can save all the cool ideas, pictures or what ever you find while you are surfing the net. It is very helpful to me and I love it! You can click on the image above and it will take you to my page. I believe the site is by invitation only so if you want an invite just let me know and I will send you one! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
(well two lazy eyes,but one is more dominate).
The official name of his eye condition is called starbismus- . The glasses are suppose to help the " " correct itself. He doesn't need the glasses for his vision, but he needs to wear them from dawn to dusk to try and correct his "lazy eye". It took a while to get him to keep them on (he is only 2 1/2.) But he is doing pretty well with it now. We are on our second pair of glasses, because the doctor had prescribed a little bit stronger lens, it's a good thing he did because about a week after he broke the first pair of glasses. So now we have to be extra careful, I don't want to have to get another pair it's only been 5 months since we got the first pair.
We will be going in a couple of weeks to find out if the glasses are working or if he will need surgery. I believe it will be a very simple procedure, but non the less I do not want him to have to have surgery. We will keep you posted. Please say a little pray for him!

So I haven't been that great at blogging lately. I have started working and even thought it is only about 3 hours a day it sure does put a kink in my day. So back in January we had little bit of snow on the day the kids were suppose to go back to school from their winter break. Here in California if it snow we have a day of from school. They had a great time playing in the snow! This was "Plums" first time, he didn't last as long as his brother and sister but he thought it was pretty fun!

Back in October we had to move "Plum" from his crib to a "big boy bed". After being awakened at 2:00 in the morning by a 2 year old who was crying at my door, we decided it was time. I was kind of sad to move him out of his crib I had hopped to keep him in it for a while longer. He adjusted pretty well it only took about a week of him getting in and out of bed. He now for the most part stays in bed after we put him in! "Pear was petty excited to sleep on the top bunk too!
Here is "Apple" in here new day bed (courtesy of Grandma & Grandpa Wilson, I love hand me downs). She loves it and now we have an extra bed in the house.

I love the month of November, because it reminds me of all the many things that I am thankful for! And during these hard times it is easy to forget that I really have a million things to be thankful for!
