The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: Screen Time – Friend or Foe?

The Little One turned 2 in January and is growing and changing at the rate of knots. With both Hubby and I having professions in health care, we are very aware of how she is developing; specifically, in my case it’s her visual development and in hubby’s case it’s speech and language. We are naturally […]

Key Eyesight Milestones in Children

As a child grows, everything about them changes faster than you can say Ooo Eyesey! So how do you know when there is a problem, if your little toddler can’t say to you “Mummy I can’t pick up that toy because my 3-D vision is not good” or “Daddy I can’t watch you as you […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: Splashathon Fundraiser

  It’s been almost a year and a half since the Eyesey Baby made an appearance. Inevitably she has changed a lot since I last posted, every day in fact brings something new… …she walks, she talks, she makes you laugh. She has 8 teeth, a head of hair, and loves to wiggle and jiggle […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: 1 Year Later

They would be at nothing in particular and would happen at any time. “It’s the Angels that she sees” cried the Grandmothers in pure delight. Whether you believe in Angels or not, it’s lovely to think that […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: Crocodile Tears

7 weeks in and the Little One still hasn’t shed a tear. Don’t get me wrong, she has cried… man has she cried, but not the tears dripping down her face kind of crying. She has come pretty close, where her eyes have become watery but that’s about it. Doing some research on this, I […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: True Colours

Did you know that newborn babies can only see in black, white and shades of grey? It’s not until they are one week old that they start to develop some sense of colour vision, starting with the reds, oranges, yellows and greens, then gradually developing colour vision towards the shorter wavelengths of light i.e. the […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: Burping and Farting

The two sounds I never thought I would grow to love, nor did I ever think would become music to my ears, would be “The Burp” and “The Fart”. The Hubby does it all the time… give him a glass of coke and some brussel sprouts and away he goes (yes, Christmas was tough in […]

The Eyesey Baby Chronicles: Gripping and Kicking

Before the Little One was born, I already knew she would be a fighter… judging by the amount if kicking and banging around she was doing, a new kind of karate kid was about to be born!! Now it has been 3 weeks since Baby made an appearance, and she already seems to have a […]
