On Sunday, C started coming down with what we thought was a cold, but turned out to be croup. Ugh - the dreaded barking like a seal disease. My sister had croup most of her infancy/childhood and I remember how awful it was for her and how scary it was for my parents. :-(
We spent most of Sunday night checking on him and his raspy, labored breathing. Not fun. The doctor gave C an anti-inflammatory when we took him in on Monday and it has pretty much cured him. He's still got a bit of a cough, but is in much better spirits. Lets hope that never comes back. Please and thank you.
The big news around here is C's new trick. Out of absolutely nowhere, he started pulling up to standing on the couch! I had removed the cushion to make it easier for him and now he's obsessed. Hopefully, this will strengthen his arms enough for hands and knees crawling and sitting himself up. Silly kid, he's doing everything backwards!
Excuse the over the top, excited Mom in the background. She's kind of crazy.
Is this thanks to his two physical therapy sessions? Finally hitting his stride at almost a year old? A powerful urge to play with that random toy spoon? Who knows. I'm just happy he's making progress. I'm one proud Momma.
