Playing with the "baby in the mirror" in the doctor's office. His favorite is the paper that covers the exam table though!
After examining him, the doctor confirmed that he had a double ear infection. She then brought up the subject that I had been fearing - tubes. She said that they are now keeping count of his ear infections. If he has a total of 6, including the three he has had, in 4-6 months, they will seriously want to consider tubes as a treatment. I have talked to several mamas who have gone through this and they have told me that the procedure is very quick and they've had no negative side effects, but the thought of my baby going under general anesthesia just fills me with terror! We will keep our fingers crossed that these things clear up and we don't even have to consider it. In the meantime, my boy is still a happy little munchkin even in the middle of all his discomfort. This kid is something :-)
