James is so funny. He loves Teagan so much, and is constantly worrying about him. Whether it is the way he looks, sounds,or breaths. He worries about people looking at him, or touching him. He is the germ police, "did you wash your hands?" he says to everyone that comes within 10 feet of him. Even to me at home! "Yes, I just washed them," then he'll look at me like, "are you sure?" "Yes! Relax!" It is okay though, I rather him worry then not.
This weekend we ended up taking Teagan to Urgent Care. James had noticed that his right eye was more watery then the left. I wasn't too worried about it, but then when we woke up Saturday morning, it had green/yellow gunk all in it. It was more then just the morning gunk you get crusted to the inside of your eye, it was gouped all over his eye. So we thought we better bring him in(before he went blind). You know being first time parents you think the worst. The PA on duty prescribed an antibiotic and said to see our pediatrician Monday or Tuesday, so this morning we went and saw our doctor. Boy, is he happy he took us on because we've seen him practically every week since we've been home. On Christmas Eve we went in because James thought he sounded congested, but no, that's just how babies breathe sometimes, and now this. (Can you hear the dollar signs?!?) In all it turns out that Teagan just has a clogged tear duct, and we don't have to give him the antibiotics anymore. All we have to do is gentle massage the inside corner of his eye with a warm cotton ball, problem solved!
However, while we were at the doctor's office they weighed him and he is now up to a whopping 7lbs 14oz!
