A 1st Birthday and A 3rd Opinion

Mattie’s birthday bash went fabulously! She enjoyed the icing 🙂 I wanted to take her in the pool for the first time, but the water was a little too chilly for her.

I posted a few pics on facebook. So go check out her Hope for Mattie page (and Like It)!

Dr. W told us to start patching her right eye to help strengthen her left eye. We did this 3 times a week for 4 months and saw no noticeable difference.
