First Cold

Camden had his first cold over Thanksgiving. He had been a little stuffy, but then he got really fussy, too. On Thanksgiving Day he screamed his head off for almost two hours straight. We took him in to the doctor the next morning. Dr. Patz was out of town so we saw Dr. Ellis. He told us all the usual stuff: Use saline nasal spray, suction with a bulb syringe, use a humidifier in his room, prop him up at incline in the crib... all stuff we were already doing (thanks to baby books and the internet). You can’t give a baby less than 6 months old any medication. But it was a mild cold, mainly just a stuffy nose, and Camden is all better now. So we survived the first illness! The most exciting thing was getting a weight check at the doctor’s office. I was guessing that he weighed around 15 pounds at that point. He had just recently moved up to a size 3 diaper, which is for 16-28 pounds. Camden was 15 weeks and 3 days at that appointment and he weighed 15 pounds and 11.5 ounces! Brad and I were both shocked. He certainly likes his bottle! He has gone back to four bottles a day, 8-12 ounces per feeding. He is wearing 6- 9 month clothing and has already outgrown a ton of outfits! Camden is right on track to be a big solid linebacker!

Here are some random pictures since I didn't have any from Thanksgiving:

Camden is so tall! He loves to stand up.
Camden always flips his bib or burp cloth over his face, then gets mad because he can't see! Hopefully soon he wil figure out how to pull it back down.
Jasper found another use for the boopy pillow we use to feed Camden.

This is a video of Camden grunting. I was trying to catch him laughing. He laughs all the time, but as soon as we pull the camera out, he stops laughing and just stares at the camera. He was laughing a lot more just before this video. When I asked him if he wanted to meet Santa Claus, he said 'Yeah." So now he can say Yeah, and Hi!
