tear staining....

Roger's noticed a lot more tear staining in the last little while. He and Tracey have decided to order some more Angel Eyes for me. There was a dramatic improvement the last time I used the product, so hopefully we'll have the same results this time. It is believed that the actual cause of tear staining is a common yeast infection caused by excess tearing. When the face hair is wet it is a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. One of the most common yeast infections is Ptyrosporin or Red Yeast which causes a deep reddish-brown stain around the eyes and mouth. I've had this discoloration for a few weeks now, hopefully the product will make things better.

In other news, Roger has a mild cold again and Malcolm is still coughing a bit. With the onset of the good weather I hope everyone will be back to 100% soon. Luckily Malcolm is still sleeping regularly from 7:30pm - 7:30am.

Tomorrow Malcolm will be 16 months old. So many developments since last month, namely independant walking! He's also learning a few words and knows several different signs. He can sign for food, more, milk, water, and cookie. The sign language has been very helpful in communication. It's quite amazing what he actually understands. Roger does his best to speak as much Korean as he can, Malcolm seems to understand that as well.

Here are some more pictures from the past week or so.

Mmmmm.... I like noodles.
