Well when the day came and his doctor told us it was time to start patching his good eye, we were handed a handful of boring, manila colored patches and informed that we could buy more at the local drug store. Little did she know, but I had already begun my search for cuter patches for my precious boy. I told Talton that if my baby had to deal with this, I was going to be sure he was cute doing it. After much research, I finally stumbled across a web site that sells the most adorable patches (It's www.myipatches.com in case you or anyone you know needs patches that aren't drug store manila boring. :) ).
Because I think Parker is unbelievably adorable with these patches on, I wanted to be sure to document every one of them. Here are pictures of Parker's patches, some from when he first began patching (even before he got glasses) up to the patches he's wearing right now.
|Here's the plain Jane patch. You can see why these didn't excite me in the least. I was determined to make this patching fun and super cute. :)|
|The simple blue patches were cute AND they matched his Cookie Monster shirt he wore the day of Connar's 2nd birthday party. :)|
