Kwamai's New Glasses

Here is Kwamai wearing his new focusing glasses. His optometrist (who specializes in developmental issues) discovered that while Kwamai has no vision problems (in the 20/20 sense) he has some significant focusing issues. It was a very interesting appointment as I watched the doctor test him in all sorts of different ways, and to see how much easier it was for him to do some thing with a trial pair of glasses on. So, now he has his own. He is excited about them in theory, but getting used to something new that feels funny on his face has not been the easiest thing.

Just Call me "Mom"

Felicity does!

About a week ago, Felicity suddenly started calling me "Mom." I have always been Mama, and sometimes Mommy. But now I have suddenly become just "Mom."

Erol is "Pop" now, too, instead of Papa.

And yes, Kwamai is now sometimes "Kwam". Of course, the rest of us call him that too, so perhaps she was just working toward symmetry. She does like things to match.
