Greetings, loyal blog readers! Thank you for being so patient! We are still running on dial-up. Verizon does not have DSL in our neighborhood, but we recently signed up enough families to get it installed, so faster internet is on it's way! But for now.........
Alistair turned 5 months old! And he is bigger by the minute! He is advancing rapidly. Pushing up and his hands, getting up on his knees.....but having a little trouble doing both at the same time. He is more and more coordinated everyday, so he will be crawling soon. (Now we have to figure out where to put the dog bowls!)
He had a bout with bonchialitis and was on nebulizer treatments 4 x's a day for 2 weeks. THANKFULLY, he is feeling MUCH better! It was pure torture having to watch him be so miserable when I couldn't do anything for him. I don't know if it was harder on him or us!? In the middle of all that, Alistair and Noah dealt with a stomach bug.
During his sickness, he was also teething pretty seriously. He cut his 2 bottom teeth at 4 1/2 months old! We started dabbling with some foods around 4 months and he loved it until he got sick. So for about 2 weeks he didn't want to see a spoon. But, now he's chowing down again....and we are still successfully breastfeeding! I'm so proud of my little man!
Footnote: I turned 24 last Sunday.......and Noah got a job! We FINALLY feel like we're settling in! :)
