Cole- 18 weeks (October 23, 2013)

Weight- 12 lb 12 ounces at his appointment last Friday
Health-Poor little guy's cold got worse on Tuesday, he lost his voice (saddest thing ever) and developed a productive cough. Luckily no fever, eating and sleeping great. And he has been a trooper, such a tough guy. Got his 4 month shots last Friday and did so good. He wasn't himself for a few days afterwards.
Sleep- Still great night sleeper. Naps have been even more difficult since he has been sick, he only wants to sleep in my arms (i secretly love it). We are back to swaddling for naps, his flailing arms wake him up.
Diet- Momma's milk. Still every 3 hours or so during the day. Taking 5 ounces each time at daycare. Spitting up has gotten a little better.
Clothes- Still 0-3, but needs 3-6 month sleepers because of his length. Size 1 diapers
Development- I still have a blue eyed brown hair little man on my hands. Fine motor skills improving every day. Neck and back getting stronger everyday. Hand eye coordination is becoming very good.

Crying- The only time he really tries to cry is when he is burped, and that's because he is impatient and wants to finish eating.
Likes/Dislikes- Bath time is still his favorite time of day. Loves watching TV, though I try to keep him from doing so. Dislikes burping, wiping his nose with a boogie wipe, and being cradled in your arms. He likes to be held upright.
Milestones- We have laughter!! His first laugh was last Friday night, Ross and I were playing on the floor with him and he let out a belly laugh, melted our heart. So glad we were both there to experience it. Also rolling over from his tummy to his back every time we do tummy time.
Happy boy after his shots
