six months old!
Our baby is six months old! I can hardly believe it! He loves to roll around and play 'cache-cache' with mommy. (cache-cache is hide and seek) The other day I put him down in the middle of the living room floor and when I came back in the room I couldn't find him.
There he was under the couch! How he managed to get himself under there is a mystery to me, he only seems to move when my back is turned!
Jayson is a happy little guy and he loves to smile and laugh. Even when he isn't feeling well. We all love to play with him and make him laugh.
On his six month anniversary I took him to the doctor. He just wasn't himself. He was lathargic, feverish and not smiley Jayson. He had vomited a couple of times the night before and had some really runny diapers. Tim really wanted me to take him to the doctor just to make sure he was okay. I was dreading it because I had to take Mikaylah too and without an appointment I knew it could be a loooong morning with a sick baby and an active three year old in the waiting room.
Surprisingly we only waited about seven minutes! The doctor checked him over and said that his ears nose and throat looked good, even his eye that has a blocked tear duct is showing no signs of infection, so he recommended tylenol for fever and the virus would run its course. Oh for those of you who don't think babies can wink...
yes, he is happy even though his eye is glued shut with mucus (not puss thankfully). We usually have to soak his eye in the morning to loosen his eyelashes. Poor boy. He should outgrow it soon. I do have his regular doctor's appointment May 24 and we will see what his doctor recommends at this point. All for now, I'll post for Mikaylah tomorrow!
