My uncle, and Clara's Godfather, is an optometrist. He gave Clara a pair of baby sized sunglasses and told us that an incredible amount of eye damage from sun exposure happens before age 10 (he said 80 or 90%)! We strapped those shades on her little head every day we were outside in Arizona. (They have a little strap that keeps them one secured....this came in handy since she tried to take 'em off every 2 seconds.)
Now that we've been in New York, and it's been rainy and snowy...the glasses are getting no play. (Although they have become a preferredchew toy....as illustrated by Clara in the above picture at the Desert Botanical Gardens) But we are looking forward to summer!
