4 Months Old

(I apologize that this post is a few weeks late...)

James turned 4 months old on June 11!
Our little boy now weighs in right around 15 pounds. He is wearing size 2 diapers now and while he can still fit in some of his 0-3 month size clothes, we have broken out all the 3-6 month size clothes as well. His tummy has actually gotten so big that some of the 3-6 month size shorts are already a tad bit snug for him!

After capturing the photo above, James decided he had had enough of mommy taking his picture and he took matters into his own hands:

Sick Day

My little boy is sick.

For the past few days, James has sounded a little congested. Yesterday when we woke up, he sounded really bad. His nose was so snotty and he was coughing and he just kept crying and crying. We called the doctor and she told us that besides saline drops and nasal suction - there is really nothing you can do and that it will just run its course.

Luckily, Brian had the day off - so we decided to keep James home from daycare in order to keep an eye on him and make sure he did not get worse. After lots of saline spray, nose suction and running the humidifier... James seemed to feeling better.

Here are some pictures Brian sent to my phone while I was at work yesterday and he was hanging out with the little guy...

I am happy to say that after running out to Target last night and spending $20 on a sleep wedge so that Jamie's head would be elevated while he slept - he seems to be doing much better. There is still some snot and coughing, but it is SO much better then yesterday.

Let's hope he kicks this sickness in the butt real soon, because having a sick boy just breaks my heart!
