Sick baby

Just as I had feared, Peanut has his first cold. B. and B. (nanny charges) have been sick with a virus and ear infections for the past week and a half. I washed and purelled my hands like crazy but Sean still got sick. He woke up with a nasty congested cough. I took him to the doctor and since he has a virus and no fever the doctor just said to run the humidifier, use Vicks and keep his head elevated to help with the drainage. I know he's fine but it kills me to see him not feeling good.

2 Months old

Wow! I can't believe it! Sean turned 2 months old on Tuesday. He's now able to hold his head up very well for quite awhile. He loves tummy time and being held so he can see the world. He never stops moving...that why his developing a bald spot on the back of his head. lol He loves to smile and "talk". He even laughs in his sleep. He can sit in his bumbo seat and can roll over from his back to his side...he got to his belly once.

We took Sean to the doctors this afternoon for his 2 month well baby checkup. He is now 10 lbs 6 oz and 22.5 in long. The doctor said he's right about average. He's hitting all the milestones like he should too. The doctor said she could tell he was getting tummy time everyday because he didn't fuss when she put him on his belly and she was VERY impressed on how well he could hold his head up. He got his 2 month shots and did very well. He only fussed for a few moments...he did better than mommy.
