You are the same lil nurser that you’ve always been. You nurse every 2-3 hours.
You slept fine until you got Croup! 🙁 Dec 12th in the middle of the night you got the most horrible cough. You only coughed a couple times and then during the day you were coughing some but nothing like in the night. Night time came again and your coughing made me a nervous wreck. We called the nurse every hour and ALMOST took you to the ER. I’m not a Dr/hospital person so I try to assess the situation and think what they would do for yall if I took you in. I wanted to take you in if I thought you were bad enough that you were not able to breathe well. We had to take you to the steamy shower about every hour because you would wake up screaming and coughing and lose your breath. Oh my gosh, please lets not do that ever again. I didn’t go to sleep until 7am when daddy could take over so I could sleep. We ended up taking you to the pediatrician the next day and confirmed the croup and gave us some steroids for you. It helped sooooo much!! I had to miss my work Christmas party, I was pretty bummed but you wanted me to stay with you so that’s what I did! 🙂
You have such sensitive skin. You always get a weird random seeming rash. 🙁 Good thing we use cloth diapers or it would probably happen more often!
Mostly wearing 6-9 month clothing and 9 month sleepers. You are probably starting to slow down on the growing here soon. I hope! You are so heavy! We like to put you in bright colors though.
You sit by yourself! yay! You also scoot in a circle and push yourself backwards. You are very curious and active.
Holy loudness you are a yeller! Maybe it’s so you can get a word in over your brother!?
You have a tooth & your 2nd one is about to pop through!
Mama of TWO:
It’s hard when your baby is sick & you still have another one to take care of.
Big Brother Jaidan:
When yall were playing with this abc ball one day it was the first time where you actually studied Jaidan’s face and watched him very intently. I wonder what was going through your mind here but I’m so glad I caught it on camera because it is priceless!
This was our first big meal being dairy free and it was not fun. None of Maw Maws dressing for mommy… or any of the other delicious food that I love. I’m still getting used to it so it’s kinda difficult but totally worth it for you to be healthy!
You love tags on blankets, clothes and toys & you want to eat them.
Jaidan got the flu at the end of your 5 months so we have been trying like crazy to keep everyone else from getting it and especially YOU!
