Aubrey Updates

Aubrey had a great Easter. Grandma LaVaun bought her some peeps and she enjoyed them quite a bit. But I'm pretty sure they made her barf that night. Oh, well. Some things are worth it!

Yes, that's a patch on her eye. We're not training her for a life of piracy. She has exotropia in her right eye, which means that it turns out and doesn't focus very well with her left eye. She has been wearing a patch for several weeks on her left eye so the right eye has to work harder and get stronger. Sadly, the patching didn't fix it. But she will have surgery at the end of June to adjust the muscle in her right eye and, hopefully, that will be the end of it. She's still doing great with her glasses, even with a stronger prescription. She also wears the patch like a champ and only gets upset when I have to pull it off. But I think it hurts Mommy more than it hurts her!

Even though I've strayed from the Easter report, I still want to share these darling photos of Aubrey's Easter Dress. This was given to her by my dear friend Chelsea and I have been waiting and waiting for it to fit. It still didn't really fit, but she wore it anyway. 

Isn't that the most adorable girl you've ever seen in your life? 

The problems with her eyes seem to be affecting her walking. She cruises all around the furniture, but seems pretty scared to let go. But her eyes certainly don't affect her mischief-making skills. 

So that's Aubrey. We have lots more updates to come. The baby is growing and the pregnancy is going great. We have a new house that we have been working like crazy on. That will comprise many posts to come.
