Jacob turned 7 months old on Thursday!
|I'm amazed I caught a smile at all because the poor boy was sick. That is also why he was wearing pajamas all day.|
New this month:
- army crawling. He isn't crawling with his belly off the floor, though he will get up on his hands and knees and rock back and forth, but he has been dragging himself around for the last couple weeks and is getting quite fast at it!
- his first real sickness. He got a bad croupy cough and it lingered for over a week. I took him to the doctor on Thursday and he was prescribed a steroid. It was extremely difficult to get him to take the medicine. Today was the first day he seemed mostly back to normal. He had been a hoarse, fussy, clingy, non-sleeping mess there for a while. His pitiful little cry made me so sad. :(
- At 7 months, Jacob weighs 18 lbs, 14 oz. (Jamie was something like 21 1/2 lbs at this age for comparison's sake.)
