A Neurotic Mother!







Well folks, I am officially a neurotic mother.

Last night, after a long nap, Brady woke up and had a little cream colored mucus on his eyelid. He tried to open his eye but it seemed it had crusted over and it was too hard to open. I was so freaked out, I started screaming to hubs to call the pediatrician.


After a short conversation we were informed our baby had a blocked tear duct. All we had to do was massage the tear duct for 5-10 seconds and he should be better.


PHEW! I was so nervous. Then, last night, his dried umbilical thing came off. I am so glad, because I always felt nervous when changing a diaper around it.

I sure hope this neurosis goes away, otherwise I may have to lock Brady in the house ;-)


On a different note... we took a couple photo's of Brady today for his birth announcement.








Tell me which one you like best!

Love the pics! Very cute!

I also HATED the umbilical cord and was super happy to see it go. His fell off quick!

Oh and hope the clogged tear duct doesn't cause you any more problems. Grace had to have surgery on her eye (I probably shouldn't be telling you this) when she was 18 months for a clogged duct. But I think it most kids it just does away with time and massaging! Just use a nice warm wash cloth to clean it up.
