How sad is my baby?!?!

My poor baby has pink eye in both eyes and is the saddest thing I've ever seen. I must say, putting eye drops into little eyes that are scrunched shut so tight you can't even begin to figure out how you can peel them apart, is not easy. But after this last application, with much screaming and protesting and scrunchy eyes, Henry looked at me and said, "Mo, mama? Peese? Mo?" (he was asking for more) Seriously?


So sad! Probably even more sad than these pictures is the fact that it is SO HARD for me not to stick my fingers in his eyes to get out all that nasty green gunk that is stuck to his eyelids and eyelashes. DRIVING. ME. CRAZY. But helping my "picking" addiction for sure. See the positive side!

Poor baby! I'm sure you'll be glad when the eye drop applications are done. We sure missed him today (you too :) ).

Poor guy! He's had a rough winter. We had to give eye-drops to C one time and it took 2 of us and I almost cried. hang in there! It should be over soon, right?

So sad. On the bright side, the redness around the outside of his eye (the sclera?) makes his blue iris stand out.

Aw, the poor little man! But I think Tyra would say he looks fierce in spite of (or because of?) the red fuzzies.

We had to pinch Oliver's mouth open to get him to take his medicine when he had an ear infection - I feel your pain!
