Ear Infection

I took Cohen to the doctor this morning because he's had a goopy left eye for a few days. He hasn't been acting sick otherwise but I thought we'd better have it checked out. It turns out that the goopy eye is the result of an ear infection in his right ear. The doctor gave us a prescription for an antibiotic that should clear up both problems. I'm also supposed to massage the tear duct in the left eye. What?! I guess they get clogged easily and so massaging is supposed to help. I've never heard of such a thing, nor do I expect Cohen will enjoy it. It wont be as bad as getting his temp taking at the doctor today... rectally.

On a happier note, our baby boy is now up to 10 lbs 12 oz! So he was born at 8 lbs, down to 7 lb 6 oz when we left the hospital, back up to 8 lbs when he was 5 days old, then 9 lbs 1 oz at 2 weeks, and 10 lbs 8 oz at one month. He's going to be a chubby chunker in no time! I cant wait!
