We can't diagnose over the Internet, but it sounds a lot like viral conjunctivitis, commonly known as "pink eye". It's extremely contagious, especially among children.

You'd do the little guy (and yourself; sick kids = lousy sleep!) a huge favor by getting him into a physician; it's really crucial that babies go in when sick, even with little things like colds. Pink eye needs to run its course, but the doc might prescribe something to make it a bit less miserable.

it does not seem to bother him at all but it is "pink eye" and we got drops so i hope he gets better fast he has been sick for almost 2 weeks not with other things too. so hope this is the last of it.
