New Glasses!

It's been a big day for Colby. He got his new glasses today and so far he is doing much better than I expected with them. At first he wasn't so sure about what was on his face but once we took him outside for a walk he forgot all about them and left them on for about an hour. It is still hard for Scott and I to see him in glasses this young, but we are so thankful that the doctors discovered this so now our little boy can see everything clearly. They say that he may grow out of glasses in a couple years once his eyes develop more and get stronger.
Colby also went for his 9 month check up today. He is now weighing 18 pounds 10 ounces. It's amazing how fast he is growing. He is in the 20th percentile in weight, 60th percentile in height, and 60th percentile in head cir. The doctor said that everything looked good. Our homework for this month is to work on crawling and work on eating some table foods(every time we give him table food he gags and spits up-fun stuff).
I have to say Colby was a real trooper today. He got his finger pricked, two shots and fitted for glasses all in one day. He is one tough cookie!!
We hope everyone has a happy Friday tomorrow!
