I’ve been trying to get some pictures of Lanie doing some of her therapy exercises and whatnot but she has been absolutely uncooperative. She’s had to wear her glasses much more often lately because she’s been congested and her eyes have been weepy. This has caused her to be on some crazy emotional rollercoaster and this is a visual rundown of how today looked for her.
The day started off pretty good. We went to Gabe’s cello lesson. Lanie always likes hearing the music but her eyes were really runny and that’s when I decided to keep her in glasses for the day.
Later on in the day I tried to get some pictures of her in her Bumbo. She was okay with it at first…
But quickly tired of playing with us.
Shortly after that she started to get frustrated with her glasses.
And then frustration turned to desperation.
Until she managed to quickly yank them off of her face when I wasn’t looking.
And was satisfied.
Shortly after that she ate and took a short nap until I packed her into her car seat for a fun trip to Lowe’s.
I carried her around the store in her Ergo carrier and she was very happy about everything. Even her glasses didn’t seem to bother her at all and there were many giggles. She absolutely loves being in the carrier.
And she laughed herself to sleep.
I think Lanie gets more attention than any of my other children when I take her out in public. It could be the glasses, but she isn’t always wearing them. Or it could be that she is just seriously adorable. Maybe both.
I’m guessing that the physical therapy post will have to wait until Lanie is feeling better and back in her contacts.
Also, and I don’t want to speak too soon, I cannot even believe that I’ve made it this far into 31 for 21. I only have 3 days left. I’m so happy that I stuck with it.
31 for 21 • baby wears glasses • congenital cataracts • Down syndrome • Lanie
