Ian is three weeks old today. Time is flying too fast! His cord fell off last Friday, so he got his first tub bath on Saturday. He is a really good baby! He likes to be cuddled in a warm blanket and held when it is time for him to go to sleep. He is on a perfect three hour eating schedule until his last feeding when he is too hungry to wait three hours, so it tends to be closer to 2 and a half hours. So, he eats at 7 am, 10, 1, 4, 7pm, 9:30-10:00, and 3 am. He will eat 2.5 ounces, be awake and very wide-eyed for about 1.5 hours, then asleep until it is time to eat again. He fits in his newborn clothes a lot better now, so I know he has grown a lot! He has had a lot of discharge in his left eye. He has been on an antibiotic eye drop for a week. The doctor said it may be a clogged tear duct. He is off his medicine now. It didn't start clearing up until a few days ago, but now his eye seems teary. If it has a discharge in the next few days we will know the tear duct is clogged and the doctor will teach us how to massage it next week at his 1 month check-up. Overall, he is doing amazingly well! Our entire family is very much in love with him!
