Early this week while Colin was still trying to shake his cold he started waking up every 30-45 minutes all night long. Yes,that is correct, all night long! After the third night I was so tired I could barely function so I took Colin to the doctor, figuring he’d developed an ear infection. To my surprise the doctor said Colin has asthma. We’ve heard Colin’s lungs sound like static when he was sick, he’s been doing this funny little cough for a while and he has started fighting laying down a lot, but it didn’t ever occur to me that he had asthma. Apparently he really has trouble when he is laying down which explains his horrible sleep lately. So now we are trying to make friends with the nebulizer. He was terrified the first few times but he is getting more comfortable and his sleep is so much better!
In other baby news Colin’s latest trick is sitting up on his own. I love this stage. He can sit up and play and see what is going on in the world but can’t get into too much trouble yet. He loves watching his sister and the cat and he loves to sit and splash in the big bathtub. A few times he has leaned forward and gotten into the crawling position. He is not sure what to do there and makes a frog like jump forward. It won’t be long before he is really on the move.
Lastly, we have decided to start solids on Saturday morning. He’s going to try the Happy Bellies Oatmeal. This feels like such a huge step for him. I’ll let you know how it goes!
