Brandon's fingers have been in his mouth non-stop the past week. He chomps on his fingers. I think it is because he is teething. Unfortunately his face is starting to break out a little because it gets so much saliva on it from his hands being in his mouth all the time.
I brought Brandon back to the pediatrician on Thursday because he has a cough. The pediatrician said his lungs sound clear so he wasn't really concerned. He said it is possible that he has a cold. He said if he starts to wheeze or gets a fever of 101 to call. If not the cold can last up to 2 weeks. I bought a humidifier and have been running that at night and during naps and it seems to be helping.
My mother-in-laws birthday was yesterday. Rich, Debbie, Ben, and Zack came to NJ Thursday night so that we could celebrate her birthday. Debbie and I took her for a manicure and pedicure yesterday and last night we all went out to eat at Giamano's which is one of our favorite restaurants. Ben, Zack, and Rich were here yesterday when we were getting our nails done. Brandon enjoyed seeing his cousins.
My name is Karen and I have been married to my husband Stu for a little over 9 years. I was pregnant with twins and lost our baby girl at 20 1/2 weeks after I had premature rupture of membranes. I stayed pregnant with the other baby and our first child, Brandon Tyler, was born on July 5, 2008 at 26 weeks and 1 day. Our second child, Wesley Matthew, was born full term on June 29, 2011. This blog is documenting our children.
