I shaved him bald again last night WITH Courtney’s permission. Or maybe it wasn’t permission, but when I announced my intentions, she didn’t complain. That’s sort of like permission, right?
I just think little boys look better with shaved heads, and there is something about Myron that makes him look especially adorable with the shaved head. I don’t mean to brag, but Myron is one of the cutest babies/toddlers I’ve seen. I just might be slightly biased though. 🙂
On other news, we found out that Myron has a slightly lazy eye. I actually noticed about 7 or 8 months ago that his eyes didn’t track together, but I assumed that Courtney would bring it up. Since she didn’t, I didn’t. Turns out, though, that she just hadn’t noticed.
We found out from doing family portraits a few weeks back. Last night, our friend who did the portraits brought over a bunch of proofs to go through and happened to mention Myron’s eye. I think he picked it out because he has a lazy eye himself. Once he pointed it out, Courtney readily saw it.
I’m not sure what you do to treat a lazy eye or if it is something to even worry about. It’s not pronounced enough to cause him social problems, but we think it does answer some of the questions we’ve had about him. He’s just now started to pick things up using the pincer grasp, and we think that may be related to impaired depth perception.
But like I said, we’re not really worried or concerned. He’s still the cutest 1-year-old on the block.
