This morning we decided to start patching William's left eye. The patches came in yesterday's mail, but since it was such a busy day yesterday we waited until today to start them. I still am in a bit of shock, since I was expecting him to HATE wearing it, but he doesn't. He fussed a little when I put it on, but after I gave him milk he was completely fine. Unbelievable. He didn't tug or pull at it in the least. Neither of us made a big deal out of it, so neither did he. The only thing that he doesn't like is that he now bangs into things a LOT more. He's already nailed the side of the table, the vanity in his bathroom, and since he does a lot of running he sometimes doesn't navigate the corners too well. We've had a lot of tears this morning from him banging into things, but not from actually wearing the eye patch. I'm sure he'll start to accommodate for the patch soon enough.
I have to admit...he does look rather cute with it on! :-)
