Ellis Can See

I was noticing at church that Ellis was having a difficult time seeing the numbers at the front of the chapel that said what song we were going to be singing.  I started asking him if he could see other things and he would say, "Mom, it's really small."
I made an appointment for him to have his eyes checked and sure enough he needed glasses.  The first pair he wanted to try on was this pair of red glasses. Not my favorite but I have learned that if you want your kids to wear their glasses, they need to choose them and be excited about them.  He had a line of about 6 pairs and was very hesitant about choosing.  He finally choose a pair that looked exactly like Gordon's.
I told him that he could choose whatever pair he wanted, that he didn't have to have a pair that looked like Gordon's. He was excited and grabbed these red frames.  He has been so excited about wearing them.  He takes his glasses wearing very seriously.  =)
The lenses seem a bit big on his cute little face but if he likes them, so do I.
