He's really a joy...he's getting to be so much fun lately. He's way more active than before, giggling like crazy, and still growing like a weed. Sidney is now close to (if not already) 15lbs! He's steadily gaining nearly a pound a week. Our pediatrician told us that his growth spurt is because his body is trying to catch up with other 6 month olds. He projects that he'll be caught up before his 2nd birthday. It's amazing how the human body works.
Sidney got his first cold the week before last. He was miserable. He had serious issues with his breathing and had Jeremy and I on the edge of our seats as to what to do to help him. I made an appt with the lung doctor immediately. He was put on Prednisone and Abuterol. I hated giving him the steriod (Prednisone), but it seemed to make him better. After several miserable days of constant crying and hundreds of nose suctions, Sidney made it through his first illness with flying colors.
Sidney has a new thing that he does now...sucks his thumb. Unbelieveably, Sid is teething already. He's drooling like crazy and chewing on his arm like it's a piece of meat. LOL. The thumbsucking seems to calm him down. I don't like it, but if it makes him happy, for now I'll let it go. :)
