Are they working?
That is a good question. We really think so. He is getting better are running, walking, and sometimes not holding things so close. He seems to have a lot of confidence in hitting buttons on things, but there are times when he still holds things close or still stands right in front of the TV to watch it. However, when he is watching TV this close he usually is looking over the top of the glasses. He knows when I say, "Gabe look through your glasses." to push them up, but if I move him away from the TV he just stops watching? The question that will take some time to answer is-Is this a habit (holding things close-watching TV so close) or if his prescription needs to be stronger? Only time will tell. This week we have started doing a learning activity a day. The past 2 days were playdough (see the picture above), and today is puzzles. Tomorrow we are going to get some color and shape flash cards as he has begun to repeat what we say quite a bit. I don't want to push him, but as long as he enjoys it we might as well get going.
