A Whole New World





Sylas' glasses have arrived and he's doing incredible! We put them on after his last nap and he kept them on for about 25 minutes with no complaints. We're positive that he could tell the difference in his sight. He was looking all around and laughing and squealing. We decided to really test the glasses out, so we went to the mall and he wore them for about an hour, only touching them once or twice, and not really trying to take them off. We are so proud of him. It makes my heart happy to know that he's seeing the world in a whole new way.
