Do you ever wonder why you rarely see pictures of Gavin with his glasses on?
These are pictures from about a year ago with Gavin wearing his glasses. I take lots of pictures of Gavin, but very few of them have him wearing his glasses. You want to know why?
Here he is thinking that something just doesn't feel quite right!
Here he is realizing that his glasses are on, and I think he's yelling for his brothers saying; "Hey! Come help me get these ridiculous glasses off my face!"
And when the brothers don't come to his rescue, he decides to carefully get them off himself! Here he is slowly getting his finger up to them to take them off!
Gavin DOES NOT LIKE HIS GLASSES!
He hasn't worn them while at home for probably the last 6 months. Why???.....Because I got tired of constantly putting them back on his cute little face! Gavin is VERY good at getting his glasses off!
Gavin may not be able to sit up, crawl, walk, or talk, but Gavin definitely has one ability.....getting his glasses off!
His teacher asked me awhile back why he never had his glasses on and I told her that he doesn't seem to be able to see any better with them on, plus, he continually takes them off, so why bother?! She asked that I bring them to school anyway, so I did. Guess what she wrote in his notebook the other day?
"I must say, I now see what you meant when you said he gets his glasses off in the wink of an eye. I think he wins for being the fastest student I've ever had when it comes to removing glasses!"
I have to say it....."I told her so!" :)
Our other boys are always talking about World Records, so I've decided that Gavin should be in a book of world record holders for, "The fastest child getting his glasses off repeatedly!" Who needs to sit up and walk when you have skills like this?!
I would have him wear them more, if I thought that it was helping him, but it doesn't. He doesn't seem to see any better with them on. He tracks some things whether he has them on or not and he actually does it better without them, probably because he's not so annoyed by having them on his face!
Not to mention, Gavin seems to be SO MUCH happier when they aren't on him!
Isn't he precious?!?!
