Soooo Big!

March 6th, 2011

Remember that little tiny baby who was under 5 lbs when he was born? I'm having trouble because at almost 4 months old, he weighs over 13 lbs! Wow is my little pumpkin growing up fast. I'm amazed at how fast we reach a size of clothing and then have to put them away and move on to the next size. Asher is already wearing his 6 month stuff and it fits perfectly. He's got a long back and torso just like his dad so he should be a fun one to find clothes that fit!

Besides growing like a weed, we've been busy the past 2 months. We've been struggling with a skin irritation which the doctor thinks is craddle cap but I think (KNOW) it's eczema. He's got it on his head, face, elbows, shoulders, back, chest, and legs....sounds like fun doesn't it? It's so frustrating and right now we are treating it with some hydrocortisone cream. At first I was against using anything like that, but it seems to be helping so hopefully it goes away and stays away. We also came down with a cold this week. His first sickness since being home from the NICU and me being the worry wort that I am, kinda freaked out. I just hate seeing my baby not feeling well so it's been hard on me. He's eating fine and sleeping pretty well so I don't think it's anything big...but it's still scary. Praying that he heals up quickly and we're back to the happy, sleeping baby we were before he got sick.

Speaking of happy, SLEEPING baby....before Asher got sick, he was sleeping through the night! For 6 nights in a row he would sleep 8-9 hours straight. I must say that mommy was really enjoying that. Now if he will only revert back to that schedule once this sickness hits the road!

Anyway, little man is waking up from his nap (and so is his dad) so I better run. Hopefully next time I update I will have some more exciting news! :)
