Like Father (and Mother!), Like Son

At Benjamin's 4 year old well child visit, he failed his first ever vision test. This was back in March. This week we finally made it to an eye doctor, who, after a very thorough, two hour visit, diagnosed Benjamin with an astigmatism (like his Mom!) and prescribed glasses. Here is our little trooper today with his handsome new look...

He was so funny when he first put them on today--he was looking all around and commenting on everything he saw, and he would look down at the carpet and say that it looked like he was going to fall off a cliff! The staff (and other patients!) at the eye doctor's got quite a kick out of him! He adjusted really quickly, though, and never complained of a headache or anything. Apparently he has quite a strong prescription--the lady who made his glasses even commented on it!

Here he is looking quite pensive, but so grown up...my little guy isn't so little anymore!

I think they make him look very distinguished! He looks so cute in his new glasses!

He does look older with his glasses!! I remember when Caroline got hers, she was amazed at all the details she had missed!

Love the look -- I'm afraid E & R are doomed for glasses b/c Phil & I both have such strong prescriptions.
