October 4, 2004

There's a lot going on in Fighter Land! Today, Jacob went to see his Ophthalmologist who decided to try contact lenses with Jacob. What Brett and I didn't realize, was that we would talk about it and try it all in one visit. It was our understanding the contacts would have to be ordered. So, J came home with a new contact lens in his right eye. The nurse showed us how to insert and remove the lens. J will wear the lens for a week at a time (sleeping included), removing it only one night to clean. With proper care, the lens should last a year. That is if it doesn't pop out and we lose it! We also had J fitted for new frames. The frames we purchased a few months back are already too small for him (which was our reason for getting the contacts). We will use the new glasses as backup when the lens is taken out for cleaning and if it is ever lost/torn. 

In other fighter news... He is finally cutting his first tooth! Well, it hasn't actually "cut" yet, but there's a definitude bump on his lower gum and he is drooling puddles daily! We are very excited, although we hope the process picks up because J is very uncomfortable. My poor baby! 

In family news... Brett and I are in the process of buying our first home! We looked at a house last week and fell in love with it. We got word today that we pre-qualified for a loan so please wish us luck and keep us in your prayers!
