So, it was a long weekend. Brennan's tongue had been getting more and more white gunk on it so I finally figured out that he has thrush. Thrush as some know is basically a yeast infection in the mouth. So, since it was month end and my mom had Friday off, I sent her to the doctor with Brennan. One note: he gained 1 lb and 4 ounces in 2.5 weeks! The doctor prescribed some meds, but ignored Brennan's cough and congestion again if you ask me. So I come home Friday night to a bit of a cranky baby, you could definitely tell he was sick, poor guy. Well, with his congestion, came phlem and when that came up he would gag and then choke on spit up. So I put him in bed with me both Friday and Saturday nights. Saturday morning, he woke up and was talkative so I laid on my bed (with a blanket under him so he would't spit up on my sheets) and talked with him. All of a sudden, he started coughing and gagging and before I knew it, I had the exorcist in my bed! The blanket did no good... he shot over it to get to me. The boy does have good aim. He got my bed, and he got me. So much for keeping my sheets clean. Needless to say, it was a long weekend that went by way too fast. He finally returned back to his normal sleep pattern last night, hope it wasn't a fluke!
A lot going on these days... have a meeting with his dad this week and we have my company picnic on Saturday. That should be fun! I plan to take pictures, so I will try and post a few this weekend.
We propped Brennan up in the exosaucer tonight. He seems to like to stand up a lot, guess he doesn't want to miss anything. So we brought it in, and put a blanket behind him as he turned his seat around and around checking out all the toys at his disposal! Kept him entertained longer than I thought it would since he still doesn't really reach for toys yet. He is really strong and holds himself up pretty well! One thing, this kid drools like a dog going after the last bit of meat on a bone! My mom thinks he is teething. Its possible. I wish he would sleep through the night first.
