Medications, Speech Therapists & First Day of School

.First day of school was two weeks ago. How has it been two weeks already?! I’ve been running a thousand different directions doing a million things. Owen had an eye appointment last week and a 3 year check up today. His eyes are status quo. The doctor said they are looking good and are aligned […]

Glasses for Another 11 Years (Give or Take)

.Our little man will continue to wear glasses for an undetermined amount of time.  The doctor said it could be 6 months or 11 years.  It could be somewhere in between that or even longer than that.  We don’t know. The funny part is that his eyes are perfect right now and the surgery was […]

Woo-Woo O-wee!

.We’ve been doing a lot of dancing, clapping, cheering and singing around our house over the last week. While some were getting cabin fever, we were doing….. the pee-pee dance instead!! “Woo-woo O-wee!  Woo-woo O-wee!!” I couldn’t be more proud of my not quite (shy by one month) 2 and a half year old.  He’s […]

Wordless Wednesday: Brothers

.How sweet are these brothers? Wondering why Owen’s eyes are so red? Read about his second strabismus surgery.

Our Stud Muffin is Back!

.You may think this is a bad thing, but it’s not.  Or at least the way Dr. Lipsky explained it to me today, it doesn’t appear to be a bad thing.  Our stud muffin is BACK! Despite the random pain, crying and whimpering from our little O-wee, he is healing well and his eyes are […]

Showing His Sensitive Side

.Who needs to leave the house?  Why ruin a good vacation by having to get showered and dressed and look presentable? Owen and I seem to believe that the best type of vacation is one where we stay in pjs all day and snuggle every chance we can.  We’ve watched movies; we’ve read books; we’ve […]

Happy New Year!

.We spent New Year’s Eve the same we have for the last 5 years.  We made our traditional surf and turf meal and just hung out at home as a family. For a moment I actually thought we’d be doing something different this year.  I actually thought we might be having Kraft mac & cheese […]

Strabismus Surgery Number 2

.After much stress and sleepless nights, surgery day arrived.  We were scheduled for 12:45pm and Owen was not allowed anything to eat after midnight.  And he was only allowed apple juice water and popsicles until 8:30am. This did not make for a pleasant morning. Our two year old absolutely loves his sippy cup of warmed […]

Snow, Surgery and Holidays

.Monday started like any other Monday in Atlanta.  Snow flurries and cold weather.  Wait!  What?! That’s typical weather for Colorado.  Or Minnesota.  Or Wisconsin. Not Georgia. But regardless, that is how this Monday started.  And on this cold wintery day Owen had a follow-up eye appointment with Dr. Lipsky.  Since Owen’s had several different appointments […]

Strabismus & A New Pair of Glasses

.Ryan wants Legos and Imaginext for Christmas.  Owen apparently just wants a new pair of glasses. About a week ago I picked him up from school and he didn’t have his glasses on.  This is never a good sign.  It always means they have broken.  And sure enough.  That was the story on this particular […]
