Guess who got new spectacles?? Mr. Erik!! As per usual, Mark and I went round and round about what style and color to get - I won't tell you who ultimately won. ;o)

We used Specs4us as was recommended and we couldn't be happier!!

He's been GREAT about keeping them on, but occasionally will wing them off without warning, which Mark found out yesterday morning when he stepped on them in the darkened room!! Fortunately, he was able to bend them back into place. ;op

This one has nothing to do with glasses, but I thought was so funny! I went in yesterday to get him up from his nap and found him like this! His right arm was twisted behind his back, his left leg was crooked and up by his armpit and his left hand was pulling his lower lip WAY down!! It was so funny I knew I had to run and get my camera.

Erik is so cute in his new specs and isn't funny how they can sleep in any contortion imanginable!

Keep up the good work, Mama!

Love, Paula

Oh, he's darling ! I crack up over the way they sleep.:)

I love the new glasses!! I'm sure it will be a challenge to keep them on him but he'll learn! Not only that but he'll learn he can see better with them on! Won't be long now and we'll get to see him!

He looks adorable in glasses! I can't believe he is sleeping like that.... talk about limber! :)

Too cute! He is looking so good! Family life looks good on him (as do his new glasses!). FYI... Specs4Us has a strap available if you keep having trouble with the glasses! We got one for Anastasia, but ended up having to use it for Sophia instead because she wouldn't leave her glasses alone! I believe the strap is from "Inconspicuous". We absolutely loved Specs4Us! :)

Love the glasses, too cute! And the sleeping picture is CLASSIC... he's gonna get a kick out of that when he's grown up!! :D

Carmen said...

I can't believe how grown-up he looks in those glasses. Even aside from the glasses... he really is growing up. I can't believe the difference in these pictures and the first ones. Love it!
