Two Weeks Old!

I can’t believe that Alex is already 2 weeks old!  People tell you that time will fly by with a baby, and they are right!

Last week Alex had his first appointment with his pediatrician.  We were supposed to go last Wednesday, but our doctor called in sick.  So, we had to wait until Friday.  The doctor didn’t run any more blood tests, but she said that just by looking at Alex she could tell that his jaundice was even better.   His skin doesn’t look at all yellow any more.  The only sign left is that his eyes still have a tiny tinge of yellow in them.  He is also gaining weight; he is almost back up to his birth weight again.  All in all, it was a very good appointment.

The only health problem he is having now is that he has an infected tear duct in his right eye.  The doctor said that it is very common in newborns and not to worry about it.  We have some ointment, and his eye is looking better already!

This week Alex and I are trying things on our own.  We even took our first walk today by ourselves.  It was fun.  Xena likes escorting her little brother around the neighborhood.
