At my last eye exam, the technician happened to let Gianna look into one of their high tech machines which could actually tell what her vision was. Surprisingly it showed some far-sightedness. Hmm. Didn't see that one coming! (No pun intended.) And she was doing this blinking thing every now and then, that had me concerned. We scheduled an appointment and Gianna finally had her eye exam last week. She COULD NOT WAIT!
She was ECSTATIC.
Was even THRILLED to be dilated!
She was hoping and wishing and praying she would need glasses.
And that is NO joke!
She ADORES Dr. Rob and all his workers.
....ever since she was a baby!
She wanted glasses so badly she begged me to get her these "fashion glasses."
When we went to look at some possible frames....we tried all sorts of fancy sorts on her, much like her "fashion frames." They were SO adorable. Then, my friend who owns the business with her husband asked her to try on a pair that was not-so-fancy. Little round brown frames - sort of like Harry Potter.
Gianna LOVED them!
Couldn't stop talking about them.
My friend apologized profusely.
We didn't even know if she needed glasses at that point.
But, we soon found out the results of her exam....
and it seemed like her wishes came true.
Guess who got glasses?!
We came back the next day to look at frames again.
She walked in saying, "Do you all still have my round frames?"
Round, brown frames it is!!!
I think they are ADORABLE.
How cute is she?
She only has to wear them for reading, watching TV and school.
And I love that when you look at her, you don't see flashy fashion glasses....you just see Gianna - who happens to be wearing glasses. :)

And here's an interesting side note...
When the doctor determined her prescription he called me over. He put my file besides Gianna's file to compare the two.
It seems as though my sweet little girl has almost the same eye ailments that I do.
She has farsightedness and an astigmatism just like me.
And let's add this little comparison, for good measure...
When they went to fit her glasses, they kept sitting crooked on her face. I reminded them that I had one ear lower than the other which made my glasses sit the same way. They always have to work their magic on my glasses for them to adjust to this oddity. So, not only does Gianna share this anomaly, it is the exact same ear that is lower. Pretty amazing for not sharing the same DNA! God has his fingerprints all over this one!
Oh...and here's an added bonus for you....
Yes, they're cat-eye frames. I was trendy then, and now they're back in style. Go ahead and laugh. Go on, get it out of your system.
