Otherwise, Avery has been doing very well. She is laughing, sitting, and eating baby food. We follow up with the Craniofacial Plastic Surgeon and Geneticist next week.
Avery Alexandra was born on October 14, 2009. She has had many health issues to battle in her short life and this blog is for our family and friends to stay updated on her progress. We also want to document this process for other families to view who may be going through the same experience. We thank you all for your continued love & support..♥♥

We met with Avery's Ophthalmologist yesterday. She is far-sighted in both eyes and has a stigmatism in her left eye. We will need to start patching her left eye 2 hours everyday now to try and make her right eye stronger. Since her eyes have different prescriptions, she will likely need to start wearing glasses in a few months to help the eyes work together to see. We will follow up in 3 months to see if her eyes are improving or if she will start wearing glasses.
