Family Time

No pictures this week. Sorry.

Connor has eye infections. The doctor thinks that he might have clogged or tiny tear ducts. Kinsey had the same problem where when she cried, she'd get eye gunk all over her eyes and when she was asleep, her eyes would literally crust shut, and we'd have to take a warm washcloth to open. She eventually had to have stints put in her tear ducts to have them heal up over the stints to solve the problem. It looks like Connor has the same thing. His eyes crust over and when he cries, he has little gunk come out of them. His eyes also look really, really bloodshot. It's pretty pathetic. Sheryl took him to the doctor yesterday and we got some ointment, but Sheryl and I are both betting he'll have to have the surgery too.

Kinsey has been a little waterbug since we got back from the lake. She loves going to the pool and is learning to jump in the deep end and swim to me, or Gee and Dad (my mom and dad). She's working on her breathing and just doing a great job with it. She's still enamored with Connor and I think we're avoiding any kind of jealousy issues up to this point.

Connor also went to his first movie last night. Kinsey's was Home on the Range; Connor's was Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. Since we didn't get to go and see Rob Bell at Rocketown and Kinsey was spending the night with Sheryl's mom and dad, we decided to risk taking him. He slept through almost all of it and Sheryl and I got to enjoy a movie, which is a fabulous movie. And the END?!? I won't spoil it for any of you that haven't seen it, but this is almost as hard of a wait as the time between the Lord of the Rings movies. However, since Connor slept through most of it, it meant he had a very restless and crying night. So, we paid the price for our 2 hours and 15 minutes of entertainment.

Breast milk really helped both Grace and Amelia's clogged ducts (it has natural antiinflamatory agents). Sheryl can just squirt some in the eye every time she nurses or you can use a dropper too.
