I know, I know. The blog posts are getting few and far between these days. There’s a lot going on, but none of it’s interesting enough to blog about.
Joe had his 4-month checkup a couple of weeks ago. He got some follow-up shots (which only hurt my feelings a little this time) and the doctor expressed some concern about his eyes. They still cross and don’t seem to “track” properly, something they’re supposed to do by 2-3 months of age.
So off to the peds ophthalmologist we went. Joe had a full examination (including dilated pupils, which made him look a little crazy!) and the diagnosis was “delayed visual maturation.” Essentially, that means his eyes are fine but the connection between them and the brain is still a little staticky. It should resolve by Christmas, and we have a Dec. 15 appointment to make sure.
In the meantime, he’s just getting cuter every day. He has a little cold now, but still gets up with a big smile on his face!
