Lenses and Teeth for My Little Changeling

I'm not just talking about mercurial Miss Mali's personality. Look who got glasses yesterday:

They are surprisingly thick glasses, due to a complicated prescription. Our girl has 20/30 vision, an astigmatism and farsightedness. Her eye exams up to this point have always been inconclusive due to, shall we say, compliance complications. But now folks can really tell just how green green green her eyes are.

But that's not the only thing that happened yesterday:

Who is this girl? Seeing as she got those glasses and lost that tooth on a Friday afternoon, we're considering lopping her locks before she returns to school Monday, so her transformation will be complete.

Side note: the Tooth Fairy brought her a Zachary Taylor gold dollar. She thought it was a penny, Seymour had never heard of such a coin. What is it going to take for the US to have successful beyond-quarter coins like Canada's Loonies & Toonies?


  1. She looks fabulous!! So grown up!

    We use Sacajawea silver dollars with great success. Although when we have to substitute with a greenback no one seems to notice, either. ;-)

  2. She is adorable!

  3. The adorable factor just increased exponentially with those two changes. What a personality...shines through even in the pictures!

    Do post a picture if she gets the haircut!! What a sweetheart she is.

  5. No haircut yet! We're working on keeping those glasses in front of her eyes rather than at the tip of her nose, first. The frames may need adjusting. But still so so so very cute.
